How do you celebrate working your final Sunday shift? With a sundae, of course. A ‘Sunday sundae’, if you will. And I knew just the one I wanted when the time came to celebrate this exact event. See, when my not-quite-was-and-now-never-will-be boss told me I absolutely HAD to try the Mondiall chocolate sundae for dessert as part of our team dinner I blogged about a few weeks ago, that sundae was so good it left chocolate squiggles on my heart that have been flowing since then. Almost like a vampire’s blood lust. And sticking with the monster theme (I have purple hair, I’m allowed), the fact that my last attempt at photographing it was a no-go meant I repeated ‘Mondialllll chocolate sundaeeee’ almost zombie-like each time Husband asked what I wanted as a treat. So, I present to you…
The Mondiall chocolate sundae. Best Sunday sundae ever.
And was it good? Was it ever. Absolutely worth the R45 price tag, and the fact that Husband could sip a draught beer in the sunshine while live jazz music smoothed us from stressy Sunday morning into soothed Sunday evening made it all the better.
But of course, that’s not all we did this weekend. In fact, my weekend was Friday and Saturday, seeing as I was working Sunday. See my other weekend highlights below, such as reliving my best French toast breakfast experience…
Friday, 19 September 2014: Best French toast at Cassia, Nitida with parents
Saturday, 20 September 2014: Breakfast at Damhuis in Melkbos, traintripping, Table Mountain gazing
Sunday, 21 September: Doggie naps and Husband’s haircut
No sunset pics this week alas, will atone for the lack in next post, hopefully. Over and out kids, I know I’m not the only one who is exhausted by public holidays in the middle of the week. Enjoy the coming weekend!
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! 🙂
