T’was the week before Christmas 2018…

We’re finally on leave! And we’ve been in holiday mode for a while as last weekend was a long one – Day of Reconciliation was on Sunday, so Monday was a public holiday…

Saturday, 15 December 2018: Pre-Christmas braai  

Breakfast at Blueberries
We had various weekend admin things to do near Table View shopping centre on Saturday morning, so we breakfasted at Blueberries. See our cappuccinos in glass mugs, Husband’s Coke Zero, his hash brown breakfast and my toasted bacon and banana on brown.
Braai food
We’d not braaied at Husband’s parents in a while, so that’s where we spent our Saturday evening. See various decorations and braai foods.
Christmas decorating
Husband and Spec got into the festive spirit at their parents house, by helping to decorate.
Family braai
Proof we were all there – see Bassie in my arms, Bertie was just out of camera shot.
Dogs on couch
My precious family, at Husband’s parents’ house.
Christmas decorations
Our house got the ‘Christmas decorations’ treatment that evening, too. Ready for Christmas!

Sunday, 16 December 2018: Weekly sea dip in Blouberg

Breakfast at Our Place
Our Place has opened where Melissa’s used to be, on Marine Circle, so that’s where we breakfasted on Sunday. See our strong coffees, Husband’s eggs benedict and my toasted chicken mayo.
Xpresso in Table Bay Mall
We stopped at Xpresso in Table Bay Mall for a quick R10 coffee treat, mid-mall-mole (Ask me if you don’t know what that means, teehee). A con panna for Husband and a toffee caramel latte for me.
Blouberg
If you look closely, you can just make out Husband along the edge of the rocks here, about to have his weekly sea dip.

Monday, 17 December 2018: Public holiday quality time with doggies

Dog beach walk
Conditions were just right for beach walkies once we’d had a lie-in and done some house admin that morning. See the doglets at various stages of their walk/swim/paddle.
Dog walk at beach
Doglets enjoying their walkies over the dunes, back to the car.
Wodbridge Island
We hadn’t been to Woodbridge Island in a while, so visited on Monday afternoon. See Husband at the lighthouse.
Pina colada and banoffee pie shake
Our milkshakes at Beach Tavern – see Husband’s pina colada shake topped with coconut shavings, and my sweet banoffee pie shake. Yum!
Burger special at CTFM
We had lupper at CTFM in Seaside Village that evening. The Monday burger special is still R55, and Husband enjoyed his paella. Also see my cafe mocha and Husband’s glass of red.
Dogs on couch
Enjoying the ‘not at work’ mood with my doggies that afternoon.

That’s all, folks! As we’re now officially on leave, expect lots of ‘relaxed faces’ in the next update. ๐Ÿ™‚
