Last weekend was so sunny that even though we’re desperate for a bit of rain in the Cape, we filled it with delicious outdoors-y moments…
Saturday, 13 January 2018: Breakfast at On the Rocks, lupper at Moyo
We’d tried to breakfast at On the Rocks twice over the December holidays – the first time it was completely closed, the second time it was hosting a private function – so we were pleased to find a table outside when we popped in last Saturday morning.
Various snaps of the front and back of On the Rocks.
Aaah. Cappuccino, fresh sea breeze and sunshine? Yes please! Best way to start the weekend.
Husband soaking up some of that sunshine.
Husband chose the breakfast pan, I had the French toast with berry compote. Lip-smackingly good!
We did a brief walk to work off some of that food. Sunny selfie on the sea shore.
After some weekend admin it was time to venture out into the sunshine again. T’was quite windy so we sat in the sheltered section at Moyo in Big Bay. See Husband enjoying his wine and me having my face painted before starting on my coffee-cashew smoothie.
See my dukka-spiced burger (with cheese and bacon) and side of thick fries, as well as Husband’s lamb-shank linguine, and Husband with a chip on his shoulder. Literally. 🙂
Second beach selfie of the day, but you can’t quite see my face-painting in the bright light…
So Husband took a quick snap before I wiped it off, while resting on the couch with Bertie.
Little Bassie proved she’s also always a pretty girl, even without face-paintings.
Sunday, 14 January 2017: Sea swims and coffee in a cone
We breakfasted at W Cafe in Table Bay Mall’s Woolworths. See Husband’s super-tall cappuccino and eggs benedict on mushroom, with my vanilla-cinnamon latte and coconut loaf topped with pineapple cream cheese and coconut shavings. Yummy!
Husband contemplating his weekly dip in the sea.
I really felt for coffee in a cone as my Sunday afternoon treat, but most places where I’ve had it before were now out of stock. Luckily we found it at Cup & Cake in Eden on the Bay. If you drink out the coffee, you’re left with warm, melty-chocolate in the sugar cone.
Mum had made weather-appropriate food for lupper that afternoon – chicken curry that we scooped into French loaf to make mini bunny chows, with dessert of ice cream, watermelon and mixed berries.
Monday, 15 January 2018: Office birthday cake
It had been Biz managing editor Sindy’s birthday over the weekend, so she treated us to an assortment of crisps, sweeties, fruit, cupcakes, marshmallows and amazing chocolate-caramel-coconut swiss roll when we got to work on Monday. Best way to start the week!
The selection of sweets and treats I munched on throughout the day.
Thursday, 18 January 2018: Seventh #digitalmarketingLIVE lesson at Red & Yellow
Thursday was the first #digitalmarketingLIVE session of the year – there’s only one to go before I’ve completed all eight! ‘Seth Rotherham’ of 2OceansVibe Radio shared his first-hand experiences with running a business on digital and social media.
I sat with Su Little and we took a few versions of this snap to properly include Wesley, the Red & Yellow staffer photobombing us, here. #digitalmarketinggeeks
That’s all, folks! It’s set to be another scorcher of a weekend, stay cool.
