Rescuing tiny octopi, delicious brownies and advent calendars 2015

Wow, another week come and gone! We’re so close to the end of the year now, yet it feels so far off still. At least summer has finally arrived in Cape Town, with the doggies unsure whether it’s best to sit under the fan or run through the sprinkler outside in an attempt to stay cool. Here are a few of my most recent highlights…

Saturday, 28 November 2015: Primi breakfast, Pitmasters’ lunch

Large latte at Primi on Blouberg beach
Last Saturday started off with an extra large latte for me. Just look at the size of it!
Breakfast at Primi
Husband had a Cola and this very filling breakfast bowl.
Blouberg beach
The weather was so gorgeous, we trotted across the road to dip our toes in the sea.
Husband in wetsuit
So gorgeous, in fact, that we headed home for some beach things and then returned to set up camp for a while. Here is Husband in his wet suit, about to pick mussels off the rocks. I stayed in safety under our umbrella and read with toes in the sand.
Tiny octopus
But it’s not just mussels that Husband hauled… he also got hold of a tiny octopus, hidden in an open mussel shell! He took it back to the deep blue after I’d met it.
Pitmasters on Woodbridge Island
By then we’d worked up an appetite so set off to try Pitmasters on Woodbridge Island. This is our ‘waiting patiently for our food’ selfie
Striped Horse beer at Pitmasters.
Husband tried a ‘Striped Horse’ beer. Yes, that’s actually a zebra. Teehee.
Pulled pork burger at Pitmasters
And then the food came! This was Husband’s pulled pork burger, topped with coleslaw and sriracha sauce
Salted caramel brownie at Pitmasters
For me, a Fanta and this delicious salted caramel brownie. Moist and warm and gooey, it was just perfect.

Sunday, 29 November 2015: Brekkie at home and pretty sunset

Double yolk eggs
Husband had bought extra large eggs in our weekly shop and was delighted to find they held double yolks!
Caramel iced coffee from Reload
As it was another scorcher I opted for a caramel iced coffee instead of the regular steamy version from Reload. It was amazing.
Tame chicken at Driftwood
Much later that afternoon we stopped in at the Driftwood. Here is one of the resident chickens, pottering around the tables.
Milo shake at Driftwood
I went for a Milo shake this time.
Black Label draught at Driftwood Cafe
Husband had a Black Label draught in a Castle draught glass, as you do.
Pink sky at sunset
Sunset from the parents’ house much, much later that eve

Tuesday, 1 December: Hot doggies and advent calendars

Hot dog lying on cool tiles
The doggies were very hot this week. Here is Bertie lying on the cool tiled floor after a quick dash through the sprinklers outside.
Leigh's dog under ceiling fan
Little Miss Bassie preferred to sit on the arm of the couch, directly under the ceiling fan. Such little characters, they are.
Opening advent calendar
And as it was the first of December, I could open the first window of my advent calendar. Yes, I am 31-years-old… spot the hopeful doggie just behind me.

That’s all, folks – this weekend’s set to be another scorcher – keep cool! πŸ™‚

Wading through rockpools, new water features and non-braai day 2015

It’s not quite officially Spring in Cape Town until I’ve had one last mystery bug/illness/bodily manifestation of stress to sap all the fun out of things. That’s exactly what happened last weekend – no mention of the Springboks’ #RWC2015 defeat, but it certainly didn’t help. It started with a hacking cough, moved on to body aches and shivers and even included a bit of a migraine for most of Heritage Day, so we’ve postponed our planned braai to this coming weekend.

Luckily I’m finally on the mend, and it wasn’t ALL bad, as you’ll see below…

Saturday, 19 September 2015: Coffee wisdom and sitting at the sea

Mugg&Bean coffee coaster says to be the person your dog thinks you are.
Great advice, Mugg&Bean πŸ™‚
Leigh sits in a very high-backed purple chair in Bayside Mall
I felt positively queenly – and a little bit silly – posing in this far-too-tall chair slapbang in the middle of Bayside Mall after brekkie
Leigh's dog Bertie playing with his bear
Bertie Andrews loves his bear. For some reason he’s pulled out most of the stuffing. My theory is that the animals he sees on TV are 2D, so he tries to make his toys look the same?
Leigh's Husband in the rockpools at Blouberg beach
The weather was glorious so we did some playing ourselves. That’s Husband stomping around in rockpools
Leigh sitting on rocks at Blouberg beach
I got so wet stomping across at low time that I had to sit and thaw out on the rocks.
Ice cream in front of Table Mountain
Still not cool enough, we went further up the beach for ice cream cones. Husband had a cherry swirl, I had butter pecan. Mmm!
Leigh's dog Bertie in front of the new water feature in their garden
Later that evening while I completed last week’s assignments, Husband installed our new water feature. Bertie was pleased

Sunday, 20 September 2015: Breakfast at Greens, doggie walks

A latte at Greens coffee shop in Plattekloof Village Shopping Centre
We got up a bit later than usual on Sunday and drove around a bit to find something different for breakfast – and something different we found! This latte at Greens in Plattekloof Village Shopping Centre was nice and strong
eggs benedict with spinach and mushrooms at Greens
Husband tried the eggs benedict with spinach and mushrooms, thoroughly enjoyed it
Leigh with French toast and berries and bacon at Greens in Plattekloof Village Shopping Centre
You can see I’m looking a little ill and windswept here, but look at my lovely French toast with berries and bacon! We have to return to try other things on the menu…
Leigh's dog Bertie in new walking harness
Later that afternoon, we took Bertie’s new blue harness along to his Granny’s house so he could try it out after lupper.
Leigh and her mom taking her dogs Bassie and Bertie for a walk in Sunningdale
And go for walkies we did! Mum and me took Bassie and Bertie down the road to a secluded park and let them do a few laps, all enjoyed the outing

Tuesday, 22 September 2015: Two pretty highlights

Cupcake with sprinkles in the office
By Tuesday my cough was getting noticable – luckily my lovely colleague had stayed up all night baking cupcakes to celebrate her birthday. Tasted just as good as it looks.
Sunset
The shot’s a little hazy as I took it out the bedroom window that night, but a pink-streaked sky always makes me smile

Thursday, 24 September 2015: Non-braai day

A muesli jar and eggs and beans on toast for breakfast at News Cafe, Blouberg
We stopped in at News Cafe for breakfast – Husband ordered for me as I’d lost my voice. I had the early bird muesli jar for R25, Husband had the new Hangover eggs/fresh juice option – he tried the orange-mango-chilli option.
Enormous strawberries
Our only other joint excursion for the day involved visiting a market and popping our eyes out at the size of these strawberries. We didn’t buy any. I called it non-braai day but Husband did still rustle up the most delicious ginger-chili ribs for us that night.

Sadly that’s all, folks – here’s hoping the next weekend is a little healthier and happier all round πŸ™‚ At least Bertie had an exciting time, so we lived up to the Mugg&Bean ‘fortune’…

September SEO studies, walks along the Cape coastline and lots of lattes

I’m now into the third week of my 10-week part-time course and my brain is positively overflowing with information that you may well see filtering across into this very blog’s design soon. Exciting! πŸ™‚

Other highlights from the past week include the first true glimpse of Spring 2015 for Cape Town – always a few weeks behind those of y’all upcountry, alas. See below…

Friday, 11 September 2015: Chilly dogs in blankets

Saturday, 12 September 2015: Breakfast at Woodbridge Island, post-assignment burgers at Rockstar Diner

Breakfast at Ilha, Woodbridge.
Some pre-brekkie grins at Ilha, Woodbridge Island on Saturday.
English breakfast at Ilha
Husband about to tuck in to his full English.
French toast breakfast at Ilha
You know I love French Toast! This is a stack with bacon and grilled banana, and a cafe latte on the side.
Long Island Ice Tea at Rockstar Diner, Cape Town
Much, much later that day, after Husband had done lots of cleaning and clearing (we visited the local dump twice and that final box that had sat in the garage since we first moved to Cape Town is gone).. plus after I finished my last assignment for the week, we treated ourselves to fancy drinks and burgers at the Rockstar Diner. This is Husband’s Long Island Ice Tea…
Burgers at Rockstar Diner, Cape Town
There we are with our burgers and big grins adorning our faces. You can just see my ‘strawberries and cream’ milkshake, as well as my cheese burger topped with a crumbed onion ring and Husband’s ‘magic mushroom’ burger.

Sunday, 13 September 2015: Breakfast and long walks along the West Coast

Cappuccino at Captain's Kitchen, Eden on the Bay.
First thing on Sunday, we headed to Eden on the Bay and dithered over where to eat. We started out at Captain’s Kitchen, where I had a strong cappuccino.
Coke at Captain's Kitchen, Table Mountain in the background
Husband had a Cola, of course. We then decided to walk “a little up the road” to see what else was on offer.
Blouberg rocks and a red ship
Walk and walk we did! All the way past the Blue Peter, Ons Huisie and the incoming sea. There’s a ship in the top left of the shot.
Walking on rocks by Table Mountain
See? As close as close can be to the sea. Actually I lie. We were walking in the sea later, and I very nearly got swept away when I stepped into a hole in the sand – luckily Husband was right there to rescue me and I only got soaked up to my knees.
Breakfast at Petit Fours, Blouberg
We ended up having breakfast at Petit Fours. Husband had this lovely poached egg concoction.
Tabasco sauce for breakfast
My favourite Boy and his favourite sauce.
Chai latte and mini cheese cake at Petit Fours
For me? This rather delightful mini cheesecake filled with salted caramel and sliced almonds, washed down with a Chai latte.
Sushi on Marine Circle, Blouberg
Later that afternoon we were back in the area and stopped off for a spot of sushi at Best of Asia on Marine Circle

Wednesday, 16 September: Dins at Fat Cactus, Woodstock

Fat Cactus, Woodstock post-work drinks
To celebrate my first assignment results, Husband met me down the road from work on Wednesday at the Fat Cactus
Espresso milkshake at Fat Cactus
For me? A super large espresso milkshake. There was enough in there to fill two glasses.
Pulled pork tacos at Fat Cactus, Woodstock
For Husband, the pulled pork, crispy tacos. He loves them
Rib basket at Fact Cactus, Woodstock
For me? The ‘starter’ rib basket. Husband helped me finish and we brought the rib bones home for the doggies.
Dog sitting on couch with teddybear
Later that night we gave Bertie the teddybear we’d rescued from the side of the road a while ago and cleaned first. He loves it.

Friday, 18 September 2015: SEO studies and delicious tea breaks

Poptarts and cappuccino and SEO study notes
I took the day off from work, so my Friday started like this – chocolate Poptarts and cappuccino breakfast while cluing myself up on the design aspects of SEO.
Chai latte and custart croissant at Carluccis, Blouberg
I had this for a brunch break later with the parents – custard-filled croissant and a large Chai latte. Yum!

That’s all, folks! The weekend ahead is set to be sunny yet windy, so who knows what my next blog update will have in store for you?

Week-long celebrations with muchos nachos, sunset beach walks and burny bunnies

This week the title pretty much says it all, except it was ALSO my half birthday, plus we had breakfast with my Cape rellies AND we’re heading off on our very first holiday since moving here almost 3 years ago, so we’ve been in good cheer all week. See below…

Thursday, 20 August 2015: GIL Africa Conference at Table Bay Hotel and my half-birthday

Pre-conference coffee in the quiet outside section at the Table Bay Hotel. Interesting water feature.

The 20th is also my half-birthday. Odd, I know, as my real birthday is 15 Feb. The doggies don't care though, as long as they get to give kisses. Bassie wasn't too impressed that the moment was photographed...

Starter platters! We ate and we ate, so much so that we were full by the time our mains arrived.

It was so sunny and bright that we pulled the blinds down - then there was too much light on the other side of the table. So we reached a happy compromise by wearing hats. Metallic. Cowboy-style. Obvs.

The doggies received another special delivery from Hills on Friday - this time dental crouton things to keep their little mouths healthy. Bertie crunches his way through them, Bassie isn't too impressed, as she's a little fusspot.

Charly’s Bakery, Argus cyclists and the many faces of Bassie Andrews

This past week? Whoosh. A blur. Can’t believe (but thanking my lucky stars) that it’s Friday again. To get you and me in the mood for the next weekend that’s just inches away, let’s have a quick recap of what I’ve been up to in the past week…

Saturday, 7 March 2015: Mugg n Bean coffee, Charly’s Bakery, parental beach visit, Catch22 dins

The easy cappuccino at Mugg n Bean always goes down a treat for me as it's extra milky. That side biscuit was a treat.
