I know I’m starting to sound like a stuck record but it’s been yet another super busy work week, as you’ll see below. Luckily, we managed a few treats between the scenes…
Saturday, 7 October 2017: Cocoa Wah Wah breakfast, dog-friendly braai
You probably can’t tell, but this is the inside magnet-and-graffiti wall corner of Cocoa Wah Wah on Main Road near Rosebank. We were in the Southern Suburbs to drop off the bike for a service, so stopped off there for a bite to eat.
See my cappuccino with chocolate biccie top left, Husband’s Popper breakfast with side of chillies and Tabasco sauce and my full portion of chocolate-almond French Toast. Yes, that’s exactly what I ate the last time we visited Cocoa Wah Wah, click here for a reminder.
Ching! Saturday evening usually means it’s braai time for the Andrews family. See what we ate and drank here (the bubbly was to celebrate the sale of Fairbridge, a house all five of us in the photo have lived in). But we’re not the only ones who enjoyed the celebrations…
One minute I was merely holding my glass of fizz, the next Bassie had her tongue in the glass to try some.
The sweet girl hopped around like a little ping-pong ball for most of the visit but also had a few quiet ‘napping moments.
Bertie boy was also being as sweet as ever – see how he snuggled up to both grandparents.
Pretty cloudy sky just after sunset.
Sunday, 8 October 2017: Scones for breakfast and Milky Lane treats
We decided on the Pink Olive in our nearest Stark Ayres nursery for Sunday breakfast. See my cappuccino and fresh scones topped with jam and cream on the left, and Husband’s bacon basket’ on the right. He rated those among the best mini tomatoes he’s eaten.
When we lived in Joburg, Milky Lane was top of my list for weekend treats, especially for the berry-meringue whizzer. That’s why I was thrilled to find a proper sit-down Milky Lane at the new Table Bay Mall. No mere ice cream counter here, there are tables and seats and full menus to browse. This tasted just as good as a remember!
Little Miss Bass also had lots of lap time at her other grandparents’ house on Sunday. Everyone loves this little brownie.
Tuesday, 10 October 2017: Spark Media breakfast talk at The River Club
On Tuesday, I attended Spark Media’s presentation on mental availability for marketers at The River Club. It was a gorgeous day and I learned lots – click here if you missed my overview.
Wednesday, 11 and Thursday, 12 October 2017: Business of Design
Business of Design is one of my favourite conferences, and it was finally time for the 2017 version on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Held at Red & Yellow School in Salt River, it’s filled with inspirational speakers from the design realm. Click here, here and here for my feedback articles so far.
Me with the ladies I sometimes work with – Business of Design’s Head of Programme Tracy on the left and Ann on the right, who covers the Cannes Lions Trends for us.
That’s all, folks! Happy weekend 🙂
