This past week I’ve had my annual ‘Cannes Lions cold’, and it was also Father’s Day and the Youth Day public holiday (though I worked throughout), as you’ll see from the pics below…
Tuesday, 11 June 2019: Spark Media’s Roots 2019 launch
Last Tuesday, I attended Spark Media’s Roots2019 research launch at the River Club. See some of the intriguing displays made from Lego – behind glass so they wouldn’t be messed with (and snacks, meant for eating!)
Thursday, 13 June 2019: Sunrise over Woodstock
I had a super-early start at the office last Thursday, and remembered to pause to catch the sunrise out the window.
Friday, 14 June 2019: Syrupy crumpets and sunsets
Mmm! When I worked from home last Friday, Mum whipped up a quick batch of crumpets – best enjoyed with tea and syrup, yum.
Pretty as a picture sunset caught in the phone wires, as seen from our lounge that evening.
Saturday, 15 June 2019: Beef roast and potatoes, Weber-style
We decided on a slightly different breakfast on Saturday, at Primi on Marine Circle – see our coffees (flat white cappuccino for Husband, Mocha Forte for me), as well as our breakfasts – the berry pretty super protein bowl for me, the full Primi Power for him. Pricy but filling (I brought half of mine home for the next day).
As it was a long weekend and we’d be having a special Father’s Day lunch with all the parents the next day, Spec slept over at ours on Saturday night. Husband Webered a roast beef, Mum supplied the potatoes and peas – dinner, sorted!
Sunday, 16 June 2019: Father’s Day lunch at the Italian Club
We arrived at the Italian Club at the same time as Husband’s parents, so took a few snaps outside before heading into the big hall for lunch.
The inside was festively decked with balloons and crisp white tablecloths and chair covers.
Look at all those drinks! The craft beers were handed to all the menfolk on entry, with the mini gins waiting on the tables.
Cheers! We brought our own bottle of bubbly along with us, to toast all the dads at the table.
Me with our dads. Lots of love!
Buffeting! Finally, the tables were ready for us so we queued up for all the Italian food you can imagine. See some of the selections here.
Some of the desserts on offer. I may or may not have eaten all of this.
I’ve been to the Italian Club so many times, yet never been out the back to see the view of the mountain. It’s lovely!
Sweet little Bassie warming herself in front of the fire that evening.
Monday, 17 June 2019: Youth Day public holiday
As it was a public holiday on Monday, we slept in a bit then headed to The Daily at Seaside Village in Big Bay for breakfast, once I’d done some work. See Husbands tasting tray coffees, my Tin Cup and our breakfasts.
See my thick, puffy jacket (Winter is truly here), as well as close-ups of the food – my banana-caramel waffle pop and Husband’s full brekkie (he saw another plate go past with those sausages and promptly changed his order, teehee). This was my only outing for the day.
Tuesday, 18 June 2019: Wintery work-from-home lunch
I worked from home again on Tuesday and stopped for a quick soup-with-toasteds break. Just what I needed!
Teehee! So many funny faces. Snapped when we had curry takeaways at Mum’s on Tuesday evening – Gords was in town for business again so stayed the night with us.
Various sleepy doglets, snapped trying to stay warm throughout the week.
That’s all, folks! I’m looking forward to switching off completely this weekend and recovering from this cold. May your weekend be warm and relaxing, too.
