Brunch at Damhuis and mid-week Mexican Redemption burgers

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.
Muizenberg beach
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.
Dog at fireplace
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

Coffee shake at Damhuis.
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.

We went on a long walk along the coastline to work off some of that food. See the full Andrews family trotting barefoot here.
Hillside Quarry in Durbanville
Later that afternoon we took Spec to see the Hillside Quarry in Durbanville.

Wednesday, 24 May 2017: Work lunch at Redemption Burgers

Old Biscuit Mill
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.

That’s all, folks! Stay well and be sure to check in again next week!
