Time really does seem to go faster the closer we get to the end of the year. It feels like just yesterday that we put in an offer on the house we liked – when in reality that was a whopping four months ago, and moving day is next weekend already!
Speaking of weekends, here’s what we’ve been up to since my last update… The burgers at Wembley Roadhouse are definitely all they’re hyped up to be – despite not being a proper ‘order from your car’ roadhouse and the impossible queue at weekend lunchtime. Food also took an age to arrive at Hudson’s Burger Joint in Claremont but that could just be Sunday syndrome. My advice? Definitely try them, but go during the week if you can.
Right, without further ado…
Thursday, 13 November 2014: AfricaCom at the CTICC
Saturday, 15 November 2014: Breakfast at Beach House Tavern, Woodbridge Island; lunch at the Wembley Roadhouse; sundowners at News Cafe Blouberg
Sunday: Breakfast at News Cafe Blouberg; lunch at Hudsons Diner, Claremont
When I looked at the photos I’d taken last weekend (there were over 100 in total, but I cut it down to my favourite 20 or so so as not to bore you, dear reader) I noticed a few common themes in them – lots of sunshine, and lots of doggy tongues. See below…
Saturday, 18 October 2014: milkshakes, pretty sights and Cape Town at sunset
Sunday, 19 October 2014: Bluest blue beaches and stunning sunsets
Monday, 20 October 2014: Post-work doggie beach walk and Spur half-price burgers
Ah, life. It has a way of getting ahead of itself, making you focus on certain things when others are more important, making you wait endless days for some things and bombarding you with a flood of others with seemingly little rhyme or reason.
Despite the typical ‘mid-year’ exhaustion setting in (anyone else notice August tends to be a particularly long, change-filled month? New offices, new workload, lots of birthdays, lots of financial admin, all over and above the usual?) we still managed a good few photo-worthy moments for your viewing pleasure since my last update. See below…
Monday, 11 August: Half-price pizzas at Col Cacchio, Big Bay
Tired as we were, we continued the extend the weekend feeling by eating out on a Monday to enjoy the wide range of Winter specials on offer.
Tuesday, 12 August: New offices and longggg train-bus commute home
Wednesday, 13 August: team dinner at Mondiall, V&A Waterfront
Of course new team starting at new office means team dinner. This is what we had…
Saturday, 16 August: Wimpy breakfast and Fat Cactus lunch with parents and bestie
Sunday, 17 August: Doggy beach walk, lupper at parents
Monday, 18 August: Spur, Bayside’s two-for one burger special
That’s all for now, folks! Lots more to update on, such as my half-birthday this past Wednesday and our seven-year wedding anniversary (gasp) this coming Monday. Plus other exciting news to share soon, so watch this space! 🙂
