August 2018 celebrations at All in the Kitchen, El Barrio and Rocomamas

Apologies for the slightly delayed post, loyal readers. As you probably know, I’m in Durban this week covering the Loeries so making do when I have a spot of free time.

And you’ll see the past week and a bit has also been busier than usual as we had the the Women’s Day public holiday, as well as both my parents’ birthdays.

See how we celebrated this and more below…

Monday, 6 August 2018: Media networking at Expresso Studios

Expresso Studios
It was an odd feeling to see all the settings that are synonymous with the Expresso morning show. We also met the six new SABC3 presenters, so click here if you missed my interviews with them.
Expresso Studios bubbly

Tuesday, 7 August 2018: Future Females’ women in leadership breakfast

Future Females
I attended my first Future Females women in leadership breakfast session on Spin Street, all about better communication in the workplace. Click here for my coverage on Biz, if you missed it.

Thursday, 9 August 2018: Women’s Day breakfast at All in the Kitchen, Mexican dins at El Barrio

Women's Day breakfast at All in the Kitchen
We started our Women’s Day on a delicious note, with breakfast at All in the Kitchen. See my bacon-egg croissant, the salmon-poached eggs-avo ‘omega breakfast; the others went for, and our flat whites. Also pretty roses, cakes and shots of Amaretto.
El Barrio
We tried El Barrio in Eden on the Bay for dinner that night. See the lovely decor and Husband’s ‘Mexican Flag’ tequila shooter.
Sunset from El Barrio
The menu design is just gorgeous, and everything we ate and drank was delicious. See my Mexican chilli hot chocolate (you melt the chocolate into the hot, spiced milk); also our taco bowls – mine was pork, Husband had beef) – and also sunset.

Friday, 10 August 2018: Dad’s 68th birthday treats

Dogs and cake
Last Friday was my dad’s 68th birthday, so we popped in to wish him in person once we were done with work for the day. See some of the sweet treats Mum created, and the doggies loving all the attention.
Sunset in suburbs
Such a bright, pretty sunset in the suburbs.

Saturday, 11 August 2018: Daily Cafe breakfast, Panama Jacks lunch

The Daily in Seaside VIllage
We breakfasted at the Daily Cafe in Seaside Village on Saturday. See Husband’s coffee tasting tray and breakfast wrap, as well as my condensed-milky tin cup and ‘waffle pop’, topped with caramel and bananas.
Dog walk
The doggies had a heckin explore later that morning when we took them for a wander close to home. See Bertie in the water, curious Bassie and the mountain behind us.
Panama Jacks lunch
We stopped in at Panama Jacks near the harbour for lunch after Husband popped in at work for a quick half-hour. See some of the sights we saw.
Lunch at Panama Jack
Lunch! Husband had the Thai fish curry with a glass of red, I had the duck starter and a ‘cookie’ shake. Yum.
Dogs on couch.
Sleepy sweeties on the couch.

Sunday, 12 August 2018: Rocomama’s burgers, dogs and shakes

Breakfast at Cup & Cake
I went for three cinnamon-sugar pancakes for R20 and a butterscotch latte for breakfast at Cup & Cake in Eden on the Bay last Sunday, while Husband had a flat white, Coke Zero and the salmon eggs benedict.
Rocomama's Durbanville
We headed out to Rocomama’s Durbanville for a between-parents-birthdays treat. Their burgers and dogs are always a treat!
Dessert at Rocomamas
See the beer- and cider-drinkers at one end of the table, the milkshakers on the other, and the ‘ plain half waffle’ we shared for dessert.
Rocomama's Surprise Me freak shake.
Speaking of milkshake… I made my way through this fantastic freak shake – the ‘Surprise Me’ on the day was an Oreo cookies/peanut buttery-caramel concoction, dripping with dark and white chocolate. Delicious!
Dogs on bed
My precious doglets. Probably wanting some of my coffee that evening. Or rather, the biscuit.

That’s all, folks! Watch for my Durban Loeries highlights in next week’s blog post. Wish me luck…

What to do in Stellenbosch 2018: Chocolate pairing at Waterford Estate

Last weekend saw us in Stellenbosch, where we had the most wonderful time. I’ll let the pictures do the talking so you can see for yourself…

Saturday, 4 August 2018: Lunch at Majeka House’s M Bar, chocolate pairing at Waterford Estate

W Cafe french toast and eggs benedict
We had some weekend admin to sort out first thing, so Saturday’s breakfast was enjoyed at W Cafe in Woolworths, Table Bay Mall. See Husband’s eggs benedict and flat white, with my poached pear-topped French toast and vanilla-cinnamon cappuccino. Yum.
Road trip to Stellenbosch
What’s a road trip without caffeine? We ended up with a cafe mocha for me and a Coke Zero for Husband, and enjoyed watching the scenery become all woodsy the closer we got to Stellenbosch.
Majeka House herbal infusion
What a welcome! When you see that tree in the middle of the road, you know you’re in whisper distance of Majeka House. Also see one of the quirky pig ornaments (they’re everywhere at Majeka House), and the herbal infusion from Majeka’s own herb garden, served in the prettiest floral cups.
Majeka House M Bar and cacti
The M Bar at Majeka House is beautiful, with gold touches and pops of royal blue everywhere. There was a toasty fire blazing inside, but we opted to eat out in the elements, amongst the unusual cacti.
Majeka Menu lunch
Our lunch choices from the Majeka Menu. We opted for just a main each – the line fish for Husband and the pasta for me, with the vanilla creme brulee for dessert.
Lunch at Majeka House M Bar
There were no burgers in stock and the menu was quite seafood-heavy, so I the coriander-chilli-broccoli-bocconcini pasta was my best bet, especially when paired with a gingery rose martini. Also see husband’s asparagus and the linefish – Cape breem on the day, cooked to perfection, as well as the vanilla creme brulee topped with a cookie and paired with a cappuccino.
Coffee at Majeka House
Strong, rich coffee, a crisp breeze, bird song and blues and greens everywhere you look. That’s Majeka House!
Bird room at Majeka House
Bellies full, it was time to explore our room! We were in one of two with access to a private (very cold) pool. Also see the pretty pink and grey birdy theme, even on the glass doors on the bathroom.
Flamingo room at Majeka House
I won’t tell you how many takes we took at getting it to look like I was wrapped up in the flamingo birdy. πŸ™‚
Pool at Majeka House
See the beautiful but chilly pool. The base is striped and would be good for a few laps! I didn’t brave it much more than this, alas. The coffee was much needed, and even that didn’t do the trick so we decided it was time for a quick explore of the local wine farms. What a good idea!
Waterford Estate
Waterford Estate is like something an artist imagined and brought to life with a magic paintbrush.
Waterford Estate
You just can’t go wrong with visiting a wine farm in the Western Cape, but Waterford Estate has a special touch. From the game viewing vehicle to the pretty trees…
Waterford Estate
To the classy country setting with lights and log fires everywhere you look…
Chocolate wine pairing at Waterford Estate
To the chocolate-wine pairing, which is complementary if you’re staying at Majeka House. Waterford Estate was actually the first local wine farm to offer a chocolate-wine pairing, and we can see why it’s been such a success. The chocolates are specially crafted and can only be bought at the Estate. We highly recommend this activity if you’re visiting Stellenbosch!
Waterford Estate fruit
But the best part, for us? The tiny fruit dotted on trees in rows and rows across the estate. They were sweet and seedless, and left our fingers orange-scented.
Dornier in Stellenbosch
Dornier is on the same road as Waterford Estate, so we stopped in for a quick visit – see why I say you can’t go wrong with visiting a wine farm in the Western Cape?
Stellenbosch
Some of the things we saw while travelling those semi-rural roads of Stellenbosch.
Snacks at Majeka House
Juice and dessert! We’d just returned to our room when there was a knock on our door in the early evening, and we were presented with fresh, spicy juice and a yummy berry-chocolate panna cotta.
Majeka House jacuzzi
Later that evening we made use of the fitness centre and the steam room, sauna, indoor pool and jacuzzi. This is bliss!
Gowns at Majeka House
This was the best option from our standard gown photo shoot. I promise. Not seen: Just how fluffy and soft and warm they were.
Majeka House archways
Night time! See the sky at sunset and how the Majeka House archways light up once the moon rises.

Sunday, 5 August 2018: Breakfast buffet at Makaron

Makaron tea.
The moment Husband’s eyes were open on Sunday morning, it was time for breakfast in Makaron. See the hot breakfast menu, some of the treats to choose from the continental buffet, and tea equipment.
Majeka House breakfast pig.
This little piggy guarded the breakfast buffet.
Chairs at Makaron in Majeka House.
The seating arrangements at Makaron restaurant in Majeka House are quite something. Look at these fancy chairs!
Breakfast at Makaron
We had bowl after bowl of beautiful assortment of food. See our strong coffees served with hot milk, clusters of honeyed muesli with nuts and yoghurt, the American pancakes with hot, jammy blueberries and Husband’s full breakfast including tomato, mushrooms and sausages.
Dacshchund
Suspicious Bassie, once we were safely home again that afternoon.

Monday, 6 August 2018: Sunrise in Woodstock

Sunrise
The most beautiful citrus-streaky sunrise when I got off the MyCiti bus at Woodstock Station on Monday morning.

That’s all, folks! We hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead. πŸ™‚

*Disclaimer: Our meals and accommodation at Majeka House and Waterford Estate were part of our review package.Β All else came from our own pockets. All enjoyed equally.

Farewell curries at Ninety One and CTICC conferencing

Can you believe we’re already in August! This past week has been busy on all fronts as usual, as you’ll see from the pics below…

Friday, 27 July 2018: Birthday cakes at work and Petiscos dins

Creative Mornings at Friends of Design on Bree Street
Almost as soon as I’d sat down at my desk on Friday, it was time to leave for the monthly Creative Mornings Cape Town talk, held at Friends of Design on Bree Street. The talk was on the theme of ‘intention’ – watch for my coverage on Biz this coming Monday.
Office birthday cake.
When I got back to the office there was a selelction of cakes and sweet treats to celebrate my colleague Gail’s birthday. T’was lovely!
Chicken xai xai at Petiscos.
It had been a long, hard work week so we treated ourselves to dins at Petiscos last Friday night, as we had so enjoyed the chicken fillet xai xai the previous weekend. It was delicious and came fast! Husband had his with a glass of red again, I went for the wild berry shake.

Saturday, 28 July 2018: Small dogs and Sea Point curries

Breakfast at Mugg & Bean
We had weekend admin to tick off our lists at Table Bay Mall on Saturday, so we started off with a quick breakfast at Mugg & Bean. See Husband’s bacon-egg-tomato toast and my triple-choc muffin, That’s a flat white for me and a serious cappuccino for him.
Dog in garden
My sweet girl enjoying the sunshine outside on Saturday morning.
Small dog.
Sometimes Bertie sits in a way that makes him look tiny (he’s a hefty 10kg ‘medium’ according to doggie food charts). Bless.
Dogs on couch
The doglets on the couch together that afternoon. Little Miss Bassie looks concerned, Bertie not so much.
Curry at Ninety One in Sea Point
On Saturday evening we made the long trek past town, to combine a colleague of mine’s farewell dinner with my brother-in-law Spec’s birthday. We went to Ninety One in Sea Point and had the most delicious curries – the butter chicken with peshwari (desiccated coconut and raisin) naan bread as amazing!
Curry dinner at Ninety One.
The girls! Some have since left the team, but we’re always good for a curry dinner catch-up.

Sunday, 29 July 2018: Baconville breakfast, Moyo sunset dins

Chocolate latte at Baconville.
We treated Spec to breakfast at Baconville on Sunday morning. See my large Flake-topped chocolate latte catching some sun.
Breakfast at Baconville.
It was sunny and there was coffee and bacon, so we were happy.
Choc-chip queen cakes
Choc-chip birthday queen cakes Mum whipped up for Spec, eaten at my in-laws’ house on Sunday afternoon.
Sleepy dog.
Bertie was a sleepy sweetheart that afternoon and slept on his dad’s lap, almost on top of his sister and spreadeagled on the sun-warmed carpet.
Moyo lamb-shank linguine
We decided on a shared bowl of the lamb-shank linguine at Moyo in Eden on the Bay for our early Sunday dins. Also see my hazelnut latte and lots of heaters and interesting pink lights.
Sunset at Eden on the Bay
We had the full Moyo experience with gas heaters and drumming music and my face-painted, and were lucky enough to catch the sun setting over the sea just as we were leaving.

Tuesday, 31 July 2018: Farewell cakes at work

Farewell cake at work.
Such beautiful cakes! These were in honour of Ilse’s formal farewell lunch at work on Tuesday.

Wednesday, 1 August 2018: CEM Africa conference day one

CTICC
Wednesday was the first day of the annual customer experience management or CEM Africa Summit. I’d not been to the CTICC for a while so enjoyed taking in the scenery before the conference sessions kicked off.
Food at CTICC conference
The food during tea breaks and lunch was as good as always at the CTICC, with fresh pastries and mini muffins, as well as sticky doughnuts, assorted desserts, and lots of small round foods easy to eat with the hands. I approve!

Thursday, 2 August 2018: CEM Africa conference day two

Food at CTICC
The food choices on day two did not disappoint!
CEM Africa at the CTICC.
Some of my favourite keynote presentations included these slides. You can read more about them here, here and here.
BrandLove at CEM Africa
Of course I stopped for a photo at the BrandLove booth, they’re my favourite CX team!

That’s all, folks! Here’s to a relaxing weekend all round. πŸ™‚

Jason Bakery Bardough breakfast and the Red Devil steam train

Last weekend was another sunny one, as you’ll see from the short sleeves in the pics below…

Wednesday, 18 July 2018: Unboxing diversity with Kantar Millward Brown

Kantar Millward Brown unboxing diversity
I attended an interesting morning presentation on ‘Unboxing stereotypes in advertising’ at Kantar Millward Brown’s offices on the Foreshore on Mandela Day. Make sure you read my overview if you missed it.

Friday, 20 July 2018: Joining the Tribe Coffee early birds, Wikimania Cape Sun conferencing

Earlybird special at Tribe Coffee Roasters
Last Friday I walked across the road to Tribe Coffee Roasters the moment I had put my bag at my desk, as a colleague told me about their earlybird special – any coffee ordered before 9am is R15. My large flat white was delicious and worked a charm!
Wkiimania at Cape Sun
Later that morning I attended the Wikimania conference press briefing, on the 32nd floor of the Cape Sun Hotel, only to bump into my cousin Luke, who is a reporter for the Weekend Argus. Read my coverage of the event if you missed it.
Cape Town CBD
Almost birds-eye view of the Cape Town CBD hugged by Table Mountain on our way down the lift, once the event was over.

Saturday, 21 July 2018: Flapjacks and doughnuts at Table Bay Mall, Portuguese chicken Petiscos dins

Mugg & Bean breakfast
Husband had to work on Saturday so we grabbed a quick breakfast together at Table Bay Mall’s Mugg & Bean before parting ways for the day. See my cappuccino with chocolate biscuit and stack of choc-chip flapjacks. Husband had a ‘serious cappuccino’ and the bacon and egg on toast.
Laughing at Dunking Donuts
Soon after Husband left for the office, my parents arrived at the Mall – just in time for a teatime treat! See Mum and me mid-laugh with our chai lattes at Dunkin Donuts.
Dunkin Donuts
Dad’s treat of cappuccino and doughnut topped with white frosting and sprinkles.
Dogs and flapjacks
The doglets were most curious about my leftover flapjack later that afternoon.
Petiscos chicken xai xai
We decided on Petiscos for dins that evening as we both adore their chicken fillet xai xai. I also had a Lindt choc flake shake, while Husband had a glass of the house red.

Sunday, 22 July 2018: Jason Bakery brekkie and spotting the Red Devil steam train

Jason Bakery bardough
We woke to ‘road trip weather’ on Sunday, so off to Jason Bakery Bardough in Green Point we went. See the skull made of corks; dark charcoal-looking rolls; white chocolate, raspberry and almond croissants; and my flat white.
Jason Bakery bardough
See the interesting decor, pigs-ear type biscuit that accompanies the coffee and Husband’s rocket, mushroom, bacon, egg and cheese-filled ‘breakfast toastie’.
Sea below 12 Apostles
Beautiful coastline on the winding route home!
Cape Town sea
We stopped along the way to peer over the edge at the crashing waves below.
Constantia Glen
We were in the Kloof Nek side of Cape Town that afternoon so stopped in for a very brief walk around one of the walking trails. It’s so green and gorgeous.
Roundhouse
Husband exploring Roundhouse, at the bottom edge of the walk we were on. Lovely hint of the sea in the distance.
Red Devil train
Eagle-eyed Husband noticed the Red Devil was on the train tracks in the Cape Town harbour when we passed, so of course we took a detour to have a closer look.
The Red Devil
Proof that it really is the Red Devil and not just any random red steam train.
Table Mountain
Husband had a dunk in the sea slightly further up the coast from his usual spot that afternoon.

Thursday, 26 July 2018: Sunrise in Woodstock

Sunrise in Woodstock
We left for work a little earlier than usual on Thursday so the sun was just beginning to rise when I reached the Woodstock MyCiti station.

That’s all, folks! Gasp, have just realised that while I glugged down copious cups of coffee, there was a severe lack of milkshakes on the menu. Just one! I will have to make amends πŸ˜‰ May your weekend be restful and restorative.

Sunny winter weekends at the beach

Last weekend, the weather was sunny and mild so we spent lots of time out and about, as you’ll see from the pics below…

Friday, 13 July 2018: Warding off the winter chill at work

Fingerless gloves and oranges
The winter chill returned last Friday, so much so that I wore my fingerless gloves to type at work. I also gladly accepted the orange my sweet deskmate offered.

Saturday, 14 July 2018: News Cafe earlybirds and beachview burgers at Jerry’s

Earlybird breakfast at News Cafe
We started our weekend with earlybird breakfast specials at News Cafe on Marine Drive – the full English for me, the eggs benedict for Husband.
Cream doughnuts at N1 City
Later that day we were doing weekend chores at N1 City, where I snapped these brightly coloured cream doughnuts. Was almost tempted to have one, but…
Jerry's Table View
I knew we were heading to Jerry’s for an early dins so kept my appetite for it. See Husband’s ‘drunken chicken’ burger with skinny fries and my cheesy ‘heart attack’ with sweet potato fries. Also see Husband’s glass of red and my wild berry shake.
View from Jerry's, Table View.
View from our table at Jerry’s, Table View. Chilly, but gorgeous.
Dog hug on couch
Aww. Bertie looked so proud of himself for getting a hug from his dad that evening.
Suspicious dog.
Little Miss Bassie was equal parts suspicious and jealous, but also received lots of TLC.

Sunday, 15 July 2018: Melkbos Kitchen breakfast and doggy beach walks

Melkbosstrand beach
The weather was bright and beautiful again on Sunday so we took a little drive for breakfast. See the calm sea of Melkbosstrand.
Breakfast at Melkbos Kitchen
Melkbos Kitchen looked most appealing, so that’s where we ate. See our flat whites, Husband’s eggs benedict and my apple-ginger flapjack stack. Close-up to follow…

Close-up of my apple-ginger flapjack stack.
Sunday afternoon drive
This was the beautiful empty road later that day – it just shouts of ‘Sunday afternoon drive in the country!’
Dogs at beach
Later that afternoon the wind had died down, so it was perfect weather to take the doggie for beach walkies.
Dog with tongue out
Sweet Bertie at Kreeftebaai. If you look closely you’ll see he is Very Wet as he loves to swim doggy-paddle along the shore and then sprint up and down the coast, barking at sea birds.
Sea birds above ocean
Sea birds in flight, soon after Bertie started barking at them.
Dog at beach
Sweet little Bassie also enjoys a brisk trot but prefers to stay dry, for the most part.
Quiche and chocolate cake and sleepy dog
See the quiche and mini sausages we snacked on at Husband’s parents’ house that afternoon. The doggies were delighted when my parents popped in for a few minutes, too. See Bassie nestled between me and Mum, Bertie asleep on the couch against his grampa’s leg, and the chocolate cake Mum rustled up in the microwave when we visited later that evening.

If you’ve been active on social media this week, you’ll know this also happened…

That’s all, folks! Have a happy weekend πŸ™‚

Winter weekend beach breakfasts and sea swims

It’s been quite a wet, chilly week so without the pics below, you probably wouldn’t believe that last weekend was one of those rare warm winter weekends in Cape Town. So warm, in fact, that Husband had a dip in the ocean…

Saturday, 7 July: Breakfast at Makro, Winter sea swims, Durban July jollity 

Makro breakfast
Our Saturday morning activities were all in the vicinity of Makro, so we had breakfast there, too. See my English Toffee milkshake and toasted chicken-mayo, Husband’s Coke Zero and boerewors breakfast, and the large cream-topped cappuccino we shared.
Swim in sea at Table Mountain
Later that morning, Husband decided the water was just warm enough for a dip in the sea. So off we went to his favourite dunking spot, in he went – and he was out again fairly soon, but feeling refreshed. The mountain looked lovely from there, so I just gazed at the view.
Table Mountain
That’s the view I was looking at. Insert heart-eyes emoji! πŸ™‚
Braai and dog
Later that afternoon, we stopped in at Husband’s parents’ house for the annual Durban July horse draw and snacks, with a quick braai after. Bassie was particularly sweetly behaved that day.
Dogs waitning at gate
Aw. See? Such sweet doggies waiting to greet their other set of grandparents.

Sunday, 8 July: On the Rocks breakfast, Driftwood lunch

Breakfast at On the Rocks
On Sunday morning we stopped in at Husband’s parents house again to pick up Spec, who had spent the night. Then we set off for On the Rocks, for a wonderful breakfast filled with sea breezes and seagulls. Coffee close-up to follow…
Coffee at On The Rocks and Table Mountain
That’s what I call coffee with a view!
Breakfast at On the Rocks.
Look at the food! That’s Spec’s enormous omelette top left, and Husband’s kippers with poached eggs bottom right. Close up of my berries-and-ice-cream French toast to follow…
Berry French toast at On the Rocks
As promised. Delicious, as the jammy berry compote is slightly tart and the ice cream melts into the hot sandwich – if you eat it the way I do!
Lunch at Driftwood Cafe.
We met my parents for lunch at the Driftwood Cafe on Sunday. See my custard shake, Dad’s lime shake, Mum’s Flying Fish and Husband’s draught beer. Also my nachos and Mum’s cajun chicken caesar salad. Not pictured – Dad’s calamari and chips.
Mussel pot at Driftwood
Husband’s mussel pot with chunks of bread and chorizo.

Tuesday, 10 July: An evening visit from an old friend

Dogs and fish tank
Our friend Gords was in Cape Town on business on Tuesday, so he popped in at our house for a quick visit that evening. Bertie was pleased to see his old friend, and spent some quality time with his Grampa.
Dog on couch
Little Miss Bassie also loved all the attention.
Pink sunset
We’ve had some pretty pinky-orange skies at sunset this past week, too.

That’s all, folks! Here’s to a relaxing weekend filled with happy moments πŸ™‚

Rooting for local rugby

You know Winter is well and truly here if my weekly highlights include supporting our local rugby team, UniMil (Milnerton) at Theo Marais Park…

Saturday, 30 June 2018: Sweetloaf’s R11 treats and rooting for local rugby

Village Place breakfast
It was a Village Place Cafe kind of day on Saturday, so Husband had the mince on toast topped with eggs while I had the sweetcorn fritter breakfast stack. Also see our cappuccinos.
Sweetloaf in Sable Square
A little later in the day we were at Sable Square where I can’t resist a treat from Sweetloaf, as everything costs just R11 – whether it’s a cold drink, cappuccino, pastry or mini pie you’re after.
Rainbow oil spill
Couldn’t help snapping this oil spill in a parking lot on Saturday. Such pretty rainbow colours.
Nob food truck at rugby
We decided to pop into Theo Marais Sportsground for a little rugby atmosphere on Saturday afternoon and to support the UniMil (Union Milnerton) main team against rivals Tygerberg. I was thrilled to see the NOB (No Ordinary Burger) food truck as their burgers are delicious! We shared a chili cheese burger at half-time.
Rugby at Uni Mil.
We were only there for the main game at 4pm but some fans had watched the action all afternoon.
Coffee and beer at rugby
Husband opted for a bottle of Carling Black Label purchased on the premises while I sipped from a flask of coffee we brewed at home.
Rugby at Theo Marais
T’was all overcast and gloomy by the time we headed back home following a close game – final score 32-36, we just won!

Sunday, 1 July 2018:  Limnos breakfasts and Wimpy shakes 

Limnos breakfast
We tried the breakfasts at Limnos Bakers in the Table Bay Mall on Sunday. See our cappuccinos, my custard croissant and Husband’s mince on toast topped with eggs (again).
Wimpy milkshakes
We decided on Wimpy shakes for our Sunday afternoon treat. A plain vanilla for Husband and the toffee-peanut butter for me.
Dog in pajama
Little Miss was chilly so wore her pajamas/tracksuit to her Granny’s house. Bertie wore his too but kept lifting it off his back so we let him run loose.
Dog in blanket
I always feel like somebody’s watching me… Sweet little girl sitting warm and snug.
Dog on couch
A sleepy boy on the couch at home again, later that evening.

Monday, 2 July 2018: Breakfast at All in the Kitchen

All in the Kitchen food
I had taken a day’s leave on Monday so started the week off on the right note with breakfast at All in the Kitchen with my parents. Love their food and drink and wise words on the wall!
All in the Kitchen cappuccino
Mum and me with our croissants and flat whites in the corner.
Hot drinks and finger-less mittens
It was a truly chilly day with rain showers on and off so I spent lots of time with my hands around mugs of hot drinks and in finger-less mittens.

That’s all, folks! It looks set to be a warmer weekend than usual for a Cape winter, so enjoy the sunshine πŸ™‚
