Hello, you! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. We had a household chore-filled weekend last, but still managed a few snappable highlights, as you’ll see below…
Saturday, 3 September 2016: Belated anniversary brunch at Mondiall
You know we love Mondiall at the Waterfront – click here for a reminder of our review of their Winter specials, and here for my love of their chocolate sundae. That’s also where Mum and Dad treated us to a post-anniversary brunch this past weekend. Cuppa with Nespresso sugar while taking in the view from Mondiall = perfect start to a Saturday.
Something I’ve failed to photograph on our previous visits to Mondiall. Champers and real books. Such a nice way to fill a bookshelf to the ceiling.
Here’s Dad looking at the little train trundling past Mondiall. So cute.
The anniversary couple. Teehee. This was the best attempt from a batch of about six attempts by my very patient mom. Husband is Very Serious. I’m not.
Our Daddy’s Deal vouchers meant we got to have two brunches for R89. Two of us went for the Eggs Benedict with bacon, the other two had the Eggs Royale (with salmon).
Bellies full, we wandered around the Waterfront, looking at all the touristy things we usually skip.
How cute is this chess set? The little animals are very well made.
Took a while deciding which direction to go…
Unable to reach agreement on travel destination, in the end we compromised and went back home.
Following an afternoon of mall-things, Husband had a sushi craving. Luckily, John Dory’s had a Saturday sushi special. Happy husband, happy wallet.
And then, home again, it was time for those chores I mentioned, most of which involved gardening. Here’s Bertie trying out the new wheelbarrow.
Sunday, 4 September 2016: Early Summer beach visits
Husband made breakfast at home on Sunday, then we got stuck into more gardening. As it was such a hot day, Husband decided a dip in the icy ocean was a good idea… but he wasn’t in for long. You can just picture his squeals of pain in this pic..
Then we had ice cream cones while gazing at the sea. Mine was swirled with coffee cream sauce…
Husband had caramel swirls with his.
Monday, 5 September 2016: Post-anniversary roses
Husband is not one to do things as expected. As such, he ordered this bouquet of roses and choccies to be delivered to my desk at work on Monday – a little over a week after our we had officially celebrated our anniversary. 🙂
That’s all for now, folks! Tune in next week for my next episode 🙂
