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! 🙂

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…

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?

Pre-Christmas week 2014: Breakfasts with kitties and new housie DIY

Christmas 2014 has been and gone, but before I can blog about it I have a week’s worth of photos from ‘the week before Christmas’ – Husband was on leave so lots of DIY went on around the new housie, as you can imagine. See below…

In the main bedroom, Husband replaced ugly light fitting with a ceiling fan, spray painted glow-in-the-dark paint onto its blades in a spiral shape, removed doors from the centre bedroom cupboards, installed TV and hi-fi AND used bits of the cupboard doors he removed to make new shelves. He deserves to look proud!

Steampunk weddings and luxury high teas

If you’ve read this blog often enough you’ll know my weekends are all about relaxing. So it’s rare for a weekend to have any big featured event other than a beach visit or lazy breakfast. That’s what makes this past weekend SUPER special as I did not one but two very fun, photo-filled things – the first, to start the weekend on a happy note, was a steampunk-themed wedding celebration on Friday eve for one of the nicest couples Cape Town has to offer, the other, to end the weekend on a happy note, was a delicious high tea with my former minions. Both events were wonderful in their own way, and of course, as you know, that’s not all we did, though I didn’t include photos of it all… see my highlights below.

Wednesday, 29 October: October Bright Talk at Bright Day Studio, Woodstock

Handmade (obviously) mosaic mirror on sale at Bright Day Studio in Woodstock. I want. So does our new house, I just know it

My beautiful fan wedding favour, and note the blue fascinator clip in my hair, thoughtfully made for me by my former minion when I mentioned I had nothing steampunky to wear. She also helped me decide on the rest of my outfit on the day through a Skype chat, without even seeing a single item in my closet as she's a steampunk expert! The purple 'record' bag was my own addition.

My third course. This is the best as you're allowed to choose as many sweet goods as you like from the buffet table. You can have just the buffet course with a single pot of tea for R100, it's a steal! Our three-course, three-pot option was R185. Yes, 11 things on my plate. What looks like cream on top of the rainbow cheesecake slice is actually a mini meringue on its side, and the cake slice is resting on another thingy. I forget what. It was squashed, but good.

Fancy milkshakes and why I leave my blog posts so late in the week

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!)

Staycation 2014 week 2: The R90 DIY ‘shades of grey’ chest of drawers make-over

Hello, crazy kids! I bet you’ve all been twiddling your thumbs and impatiently refreshing my homepage to find out how I spent my second week of staycation as the first dose was so riveting! (Remember? Lots of hot chocolate, half-price pizzas, etc).

While there was still an abundance of sweet treats (I should rename my blog ‘She of the sweet tooth’ or some such), there was also lots more relax time. Like this…

Look at THAT for a hot chocolate! This is how it's done at Petit Fours in Blouberg - cream and Flake on top, with two marshmallows on the side. You can do what you want with them - I elected to dunk them into the mug so they mushed into pink fizz.

And look what I ate! They were out of bananas but I didn't mind. This is a wonderful waffle with carmel sauce, melty chocolate and enough nuts for every block of waffle

The pinkest pink milkshake I've ever had to drink I think. Plus you can see my cream cheese-stuffed jalapeno poppers, AND the R35 'bowl of soup and roll and coffee' deal I helped Mom finish. Am very helpful when it comes to food :)

Nom-nom-nomming and resting aside, the ‘staycation’ was also very productive. First up, I tackled the very last of the very hefty filing admin, as we learned the hard way a few months back that slotting all the paperwork of everything from the everest of ever into a skimpy, flimsy little concertina file is not the answer (read: it broke apart all over my head when I lifted it out of the cupboard and turned our spare room into the messiest mess that was so embarrassing we permanently kept the door closed).

Until now, that is… behold the tidy organised-ness:

ALL the filed paperwork from the everest of ever! With file dividers and sticky tabs and all sorts of organisational skills!

A selection of the Husband’s framed certificates, diplomas, etcetera etcetera.

And while that was quite the achievement ( as well as FINALLY framing some of the academic certificates Husband’s had for decades, as you see above), what I was most proud of was the little DIY project I set myself.

See, our ‘medicine/loose wires/wrapping paper/all and sundry random objects’ chest of drawers was starting to look a bit tired. More than a little tired if you must know, as some of its pully-knobs just plain fell out along the way. And (more disconcertingly) it was a boring brown, which doesn’t quite match my black-and-white-and-silver colour scheme in the slightest. So it was a big colour clash mish-mash and overall eyesore, truth be told. So what did I do? I plotted and planned, flipped through magazines for inspiration, and finally found it (albeit in pink instead of grey) – a lovely ombre effect that’s easy to achieve by simply making each drawer a different shade of your colour of choice by blending different amounts of paint together… nothing to do with the 50 Shades of Grey book ‘n movie franchise, alas.

But wipe away your tears and bask in my pride by having a looksee below – and let me know what you think! It’s by no means perfect, but only cost around R90 to complete (R35 for a tub of black paint, R35 for a tub of white paint, R10 for 2 small round wooden doorknobs, R10 for brand new paintbrush). This is the before shot…

The 'before' shot. Poor thing was missing knobs and had misaligned drawers and its top was used as a general dumping ground.

I know, I know – it’s only 6 of the stated 50 shades of grey the book promises, so there’s bound to be more DIY coming my way 😉
