Hello, one and all! When last I left you t’was the week before Christmas, and with some special effort I’m actually blogging today, the day of. We had a lovely lunch earlier and are all full-to-bursting – I’ve posted a few pics below, as well as other highlights from this magical week of holiday – despite lots of ‘new phone’ admin as Husband’s mysteriously vanished last Friday…
Saturday, 19 December 2015: Limnos brekkie, waffles for tea, dancing at Deco Dance
Sunday, 20 December 2015: Breakfast at Greens
Tuesday, 22 December 2015: Doggie beach walk, I ❤ Big Bay Christmas market
Wednesday, 23 December 2015: Golfing, suburban walks and giant Christmas trees
Thursday, 24 December 2015: Omelettes, beaches and custard shakes
Friday, 25 December 2015: Christmas lunch at Mum’s
That’s all, folks! Hope you also ate, drank and were merry today. I’m growing rather attached to the idea of a daily afternoon nap…
Tired. Worn out. In need of a break. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who works full-time and doesn’t feel that way at this time of year. Not to say we haven’t enjoyed ourselves. It’s been a good year, but a really long one. We’re so looking forward to our ‘staycation’, coming up after just a few more days of work.
It’s that thought, and the following highlights and ‘exciting moments’, that are keeping us going…
Friday, 4 December 2015: Pool fill
Saturday, 5 December 2015: Adirondack collection, lazy Driftwood lunch
Sunday, 6 December 2015: Cloudy Signal Hill, PBJ French Toast
Tuesday, 8 December 2015: Almond croissant
Wednesday, 9 December 2015: Best shortcake cookie
Thursday, 10 December 2015: Barclays Rise Innovation hub launch at Woodstock Exchange
Friday, 11 December 2015: Desk-side daquiris
That’s all, folks! 🙂 Depending on the weather, this weekend will likely be another relaxed one.
What a week it’s been! With it being week 8 of my 10-week GetSmarter SEO course I’ve not attended many events after hours in the past few weeks, but this week there was one I just couldn’t refuse, in walking distance to work. And of course we packed in as many fun activities as possible around my weekend assignments…
Friday, 16 October 2015: Local Spur dins
Saturday, 17 October 2015: Blueberries breakfast and RWC victory
Sunday, 18 October 2015: Pricy breakfasts, exploring Lagoon Beach hotel and enjoying the afternoon sunshine
Wednesday, 21 October: Oats-so-easy in a pot and interesting local art
Thursday, 22 October 2015: Beautiful flowers at Design Indaba offices
That’s all, folks! Hope you’ve had a wonderful week 🙂
Last week a dear friend who is moving to Cape Town herself soon posted an image of the most amazing-looking milkshakes to my Facebook wall – they’re from the new hole-in-the-wall in Sea Point called My Sugar.
Warning: don’t click this review by Eat Out unless you want to drool. Unfortunately it seems everyone and their best friend also read the post, so when we eventually got there mid-morning Saturday they were closed for a private function of sorts, using all three of their inside tables. Never fear, we’ll try them again soon, and still managed a lovely weekend as the sun decided to come out at long last – see some of my highlights below…
Friday, 9 October 2015: Bertie sleeps upside down
Saturday, 10 October 2015: Sea Point road trip, home and garden work
Sunday, 11 October 2015: Milkshakes in the sunshine and doggy walks in the suburbs
Wednesday, 14 October 2015: Press preview breakfast at the Netherlands embassy, day of tasty treats
Friday, 16 October 2015: Department lunch at Bootleggers, Kenilworth
Yes dear reader, the time has come to find out exactly what Husband challenged himself to last weekend, remember I left my last blog post on that note? Well, you’ll see below – just spot the pic that doesn’t look Wintery. Actually that’s not much of a hint as the weather was delightful last weekend!
You’ll also see my slightly different hair, as mentioned last week – it’s a little shorter, layered and a reddy/purple tint in full sun, just looks really dark in your average indoor setting, which matches the Wintery mood, much like I did last year – click here for a reminder of the 2014 version and get scrolling below…
Saturday, 1 August 2015: Sunny beach visits and slurping thick shakes
Sunday, 2 August 2015: Breakfast at Maestro’s on Woodbridge Island, doggy beach walks and Wintery sea dunks
Monday, 3 August 2015: IMC Conference day 1
Tuesday, 4 August 2015: IMC day 2 and Bertie waits and waits
On that note, we break for the next weekend of fun deeds, with the added joy of an extra day this time around, it’s time for the happy dance! Hope you have a wonderful Women’s Day, all! 🙂
PS: Weekly blog post standards of milkshake, check, sunset, check, beach visit, check! Triple success.
PPS: Next week’s post may be a little delayed as I’ll be on the warmer shores of Durban, covering Loeries Creative Week. Eep.
