Chocolatey waffles and midweek work functions to make the medicine go down…

“In the most delightful wayyyyy!” Thanks, Mary Poppins. Ahem. As you were.

This past week I was knocked flat by the awful cold/flu that’s spreading like wildfire the country at the moment due to change of season. I’m mostly better now, apart from the hacking cough that keeps breaking the silence – stay warm kiddos, my drenching on the bus last week was probably the final straw after fighting off the germs everyone had been spluttering around all week. That doesn’t mean we had a boring week though, stifled by tissues and throat spray – not by a long shot πŸ™‚ Yes, I do love my job – you’ll see why in the pics below…

Saturday, 6 June 2015: Waffle breakfast, owlie gazing, Enchanted pizza

When I awoke on Saturday with  a firey throat and tonsils ablaze (this girl was on firrrrrre), Husband asked what I wanted for breakfast. Only a Wimpy mega coffee and a waffle with ice cream came to mind, so off to Wimpy we went. I had the waffle with brownies and M&Ms, clearly

There was a flurry of activity in our local West Coast Village so w went to see and sure enough, the resident owlie was being photographed by all and sundry. I even had my owlie-dotted bag on my shoulder. Husband heard him asking 'Hooo'.

Bassie turned her nose up at Pupcorn once before, but she really LOVED this bag - maybe because it's roast beef flavour, but most likely because it was bought for her brother.

The pizza we shared - the Mexican. With chicken, guacamole, sour cream. I said I'd have a slice and ended up demolishing nearly half of it.

On Sunday I was well enough for an outing so we trotted off to I heart Melkies in Melkbos. This was my granola with sliced banana and berry coulis.
Husband went for the ‘veggie breakfast’ instead. Marmite toast with avo, roast tomatoes and poached egg. “It was something different”, he said.
Husband happily pouring his breakfast Cola. Note the herb box next to us, ran all around the inner perimeter of the seating area.

This is! Amazing glass ceiling, glass doors leading out to the pool area, and views of Table Mountain. A real treat to see on a work day.

Isn't this just the best collection of guitars you've seen? So many more to marvel at when I attended an evening event at Marshall Music in Cape Town.
