Last week went by in a blur as I’ve been a bit under the weather and Husband was on night shift again. Luckily we’re both on leave for a bit next week, to recharge our batteries a little.
See a selection of my favourite moment since my last blog update below, I lived up to my promise of posting quite a few ‘family pics’ of Husband with his brother…
Friday, 19 May 2017: Fish Hoek funeral and evening fires
Aunty Sybil’s funeral flowers were beautiful – fitting as she was on the flower decorating committee at the church where her memorial service was held.
Post-Home Affairs visit and funeral we stopped off at Muizenberg beach with Spec, who would be staying with us for the weekend. We weren’t really dressed for a dip in the sea but still soaked up some sunshine.
T’was chilly that evening so Husband lit a fire. Bassie and I spent hours warming ourselves in front of it.
Saturday, 20 May 2017: Melkbos morning with mum-in-law
As Husband worked the previous weekend, we didn’t get to see my mum-in-law for Mother’s Day. We therefore had a belated Mother’s Day breakfast at Damhuis in Melkbos on Saturday. This was my coffee shake.
Family in breakfast/brunch mode. Was delicious!
Look at the lovely decor and some of the food on offer.
We went on a long walk along the coastline to work off some of that food. See the full Andrews family trotting barefoot here.
Later that afternoon we took Spec to see the Hillside Quarry in Durbanville.
See? Proof we were there.
We stopped in at Saint’s, Eden on the Bay for dins a little later.
This is what we ended up with – two draught beers top left, a single latte bottom right, my ‘Irish nacho’ potato skins and the boys’ fancy burgers.
Sunday, 21 May 2017: Peanut-butter hot chocolate at News Cafe
Drinks at News Cafe were our Sunday afternoon highlight. See my peanut butter hot chocolate, Husband’s Long Island Ice Tea and another shot of the three of us together.
Mum made individual bobotie pots for dins. Delicious!
For dessert, milk tart. 10/10!
Wednesday, 24 May 2017: Work lunch at Redemption Burgers
Wednesday was the day of our next department lunch at work – we try have them every two months or so. This time we took a quick walk down the road to Redemption Burgers at the Old Biscuit Mill.
The Mexican burger, topped with cheddar, guacamole and salsa. Also, tin mug of chips and my wavy-looking cappuccino mug.
That’s all, folks! Stay well and be sure to check in again next week!
