It’s been a somewhat quiet, lonely week as Husband had to work last weekend and I was head-down preparing our coverage for the recent IAB Digital Summit and Bookmark Awards for the rest of it.
But we always have our happy moments sprinkled in-between…
Saturday, 11 March 2017: Hartlief’s breakfast, homegrown mielies for dins
As I was flying solo while Husband worked last weekend, Mum and Dad were kind enough to include me in their breakfast plans. Here we are smiling at/because of our food at Hartlief’s Deli in Gardens. (Yes, Mum’s having soup for breakfast.)
Cappuccinos always get the morning off to the right start.
For dins that evening we got to sample Husband’s first batch of homegrown mielies and they were absolutely delicious – glossy and fresh and so tasty that even Bertie was interested…
Sunday, 12 March 2017: Couch reading and suburban sunsets
Sunday was all about reading on the couch for me and Bassie.
We spent much of the afternoon like this.
Mmm, it was bolognese pasta with parmesan for Sunday lupper at Mum’s.
For dessert, this fruity custard flan, yum!
The sky went all pastel pretty at sunset that eve.
Wednesday, 15 March 2017: Muffins and meetings
Wednesday was a meeting packed, two chocolate-y muffins kind of day. The owlie mug was jealous.
My Wednesday highlight was a visit to the Liquorice office space in town. They’re quite the bustling agency and did very well at the Bookmark Awards ( read my interview with them for proof)!
Thursday, 16 March 2017: Experian Mosaic tool launch at the Nasdak
In addition to the Bookmark Awards in JHB, it was also the launch of Experian’s next-gen customer segmentation tool at the Nasdak in the Media24 building in Cape Town’s CBD.
I’d been to the media24 Building before but never to the ‘Nasdak’ (Naspers’ dak) on its 26th floor. Look at those views, all across the harbour!
But just look at the view of Table Mountain from the other end of the building! I’d never get any work done if this was my office.
Some of the sights of the afternoon. All very interesting for consumer trends research marketers.
Morning muffins to kick our brains into gear.
The theme was ‘Through the looking glass’ from Alice in Wonderland, hence these ‘Drink me’ pink drinks.
T’was a packed venue and a most impressive event.
I got back to the office just in time to be ululated at and presented with Burger King’s new boerie burger.
That’s all, folks! We’re both off this weekend so yay for some much needed relaxing and napping and taking it easy…
