The good thing about leaving my weekly blog post for later in the week is that seeing all the photos again makes me yearn for weekend… which, by the time I press ‘publish’, is that much closer. And so, without further ado, I present photos of what I’ve been up to since my last update. Key among them? Milkshakes at the Protea Fire & Ice (though not the supersized ones we had at the Melrose Arch Fire & Ice a few years ago, click here for a reminder!)

Doesn’t scrolling through all that make you long for the weekend? Good news, it’s just around the corner! 🙂 See, told you I was onto something by leaving my blog posts so late in the week. You can thank me later.
Ahoy, me mateys! 🙂 Yes, I’ve turned to Pirate Speak. Argh. Shiver me timbers (Alas, that’s all the Pirate Speak I know. If you have a few more catch phrases up your sleeve, please share with me so I can impress others when next I have a parrot on my shoulder.)
The reason for my twist to all things sea-wordy is because we were sea-worthy this past weekend. See, Husband has decided he is a budding fisherman. As such, we renewed his fishing licence (you can do so at your local Post Office), stocked up the inflatable boat with all sorts of fishing apparel (poles, boxes, hats, hooks, soggy bread and the like) and headed out to the open waters just in front of the Blue Peter in Big Bay. Because we do love to be beside the seaside. See below.
But the fun didn’t end there, oh no. We also took the doggies for a lovely long walk (bark in the park) in the marshy wonderland they’d not yet explored near McPhersons of the ‘Sunday lunch special’ I recently wrote about:
Then, just so I don’t disappoint all the foodie fanatics asking “Where are my weekly food pics?”, here you go: we bussed into town on Sunday morning and had a fancy brunch at Kloof Street House on Sunday. Not cheap by a long shot but worth most of the pennies as it’s a rather unusual venue with lots of nooks and crannies to explore while you wait for your gastronomic extravaganza to appear…
And of course that’s not even half of how we spent the weekend. We also napped with the doggies, watched some big bikes going around the track at Killarney Race track and snacked on imported goods from the UK Emporium. Amongst other things…
Looks like this weekend’s set to be another cold one so keep warm, kids!
