The past week flew by much faster than last week, a good sign that we’re back in the swing of things. I’ve written quite a lot of late so I’ll let the pictures do the talking – scroll through this past week’s highlights for more…
Saturday, 14 January 2017: Lisa’s breakfast, Rocomamas’ lunch
Saturday morning was garden-nursery visit time, so we stopped in for a bite to eat at Lisa’s in Stodel’s, just behind Paddocks centre. That’s my cappuccino.
To eat, I had the plain toasted croissant (with jam and cheese) while Husband had the ‘mighty mushroom’, topped with beans, feta, garlic and a poached egg.
Woohoo! On Saturday afternoon I buckled down and revised that week’s notes and practical assignments for the Shaw Academy diploma in Photoshop, and was over the moon at achieving 100% in that week’s quiz! Here’s hoping for similar results for the rest of the month…
Ah, Rocomamas. We’ve been to the Durbanville branch a few times now and loved every single visit. Last Saturday afternoon was no different. Click here to read my full review as I’ll be sparing in the descriptions below…
The order pad.
Husband went for the chicken ‘Rockstar’ with extra chilli.
I had the limited edition Le Bomb. That’s 2 X beef smash patties, melted cheddar, a feta cheese bomb, bacon and lashings of BBQ sauce.
Our ‘turbo-charged’ fries. Topped with chiili con carne on the left, and hellishly hot chilli-cheese sauce on the right.
Also, a portion of these here chilli-cheese bombs. Hot, fried version of what you saw atop our shoestring fries.
Husband went for the ‘Adult shake’.
You guys. Introducing the Candyliscious freak shake. Berries, white chocolate, Fizzer, Jelly Tots. Top marks from me!
We stopped in for a look at the Hillside quarry on our way home, much later that eve. Beautiful venue.
Sunday, 15 January 2017: Veggie gardening and doggy TLC
Two sides of Bertie’s sweet sleepy Sunday morning face.
We popped into Cafe Lacomia for Sunday morning breakfast. I poured out a cafe latte and ate the toasted chicken mayo and chips you see top-right, while Husband went for his standard Bull’s Eye.
More of Husband’s latest gardening exploits. Note the sweet little gecko he found darting up the wall.
The doggies book-ended me when I caught up on some reading that afternoon, and insisted on sitting on top of their granny while she watched TV.
Wednesday, 18 January 2017: Liberty Radio Awards roadshow at Radisson Blu Waterfront
On Wednesday I covered the launch of the Liberty Radio Awards roadshow at the Radisson Blu Waterfront hotel. Love the bright flora out front. Click here for my coverage of the roadshow.
Truly gorgeous eats were on display – the freshest fruit, dainty muffins, dunkable biscuits and strong coffee. Plus more of those beautiful flowers.
Thursday, 19 January 2017: Interview at Southern Guild, Woodstock
On Thursday I’d arranged an interview at Southern Guild gallery, which will be published during #DesignMonth on Bizcommunity (that’s February). While there I tested out the Fiona Blackfish hanging chair, part of Porky Hefer’s ‘Monstera Deliciosa volume 1’ exhibit. Very comfy and oh-so eye-catching.
I couldn’t help snap this on my way back to the office: The man ‘painting graffiti’ is graffiti himself.
Bless! When I got back to my desk, colleagues had saved some birthday cake/party treats for me. Nom nom nom.
That’s all, folks! Have a happy weekend. 🙂
*Disclaimer: Obviously our meal at Rocomamas was part of our review package. All else came from our own pockets. All enjoyed equally.
