August is almost everyone else in my family’s birthday – dad, mum, mum-in-law – so expect celebrate-y pics on the blog over the coming weeks. First up was dad this last Thursday, with a public holiday the day before so we got to spend some time with him.

That’s all, folks! See you next week…
*Disclaimer: Obviously the meal at 95 at Parks was part of our review package. All else came from our own pockets. All enjoyed equally.Click here for my full review of the Italian Experience at 95 at Parks.
The irony – in my last post I mentioned Husband was done being Marvin, but he went on to work all weekend and late most of this week – it’s now been 17 days straight! At least we’ve finally reached the weekend, and both have an extra few days off thereafter. Here are a few of our favourite moments from this very busy week…
Friday, 21 July 2017: Celebratory dinner at Moyo
Saturday, 22 July 2017: Early morning doggie moments
Sunday, 23 July 2017: Lacomia breakfast and hidden-centre cupcakes
Tuesday, 25 July 2017: Meet my fox dog
Wednesday, 26 July 2017: Cannes Lions Cape Town and Stepbrothers’ team lunch
Thursday, 27 July 2017: Impressive office birthday cakes
That’s all, folks! Time to unplug, unwind and destress.
What a busy week it’s been! In addition to Cannes Lions’ week of advertising awards kicking off with a bang, it was Father’s Day last weekend, Husband’s turn to be Marvin again and last Friday was a public holiday so that meant doing five days of work in four – make that 3.25, as Thursday was also our office teambuilding day, which we spent swinging through the trees of Constantia. I’ll explain in pictures, so you can see exactly what I mean…
Thursday, 15 June 2017: Teambuilding at Acrobranch Constantia and Eagle’s Nest Wines
Friday, 16 June 2017: Youth Day French toast and Saint’s Winter menu
Saturday, 17 June 2017: Petiscos family brunch and Cannes Lions 2017 begins
Sunday, 18 June 2017: Father’s Day breakfast at Stacked Diner, high tea at Mum’s
Work week coffee treats during all hours of Cannes Lions work
That’s all, folks! Cannes Lions comes to an end on Saturday evening and Husband is working all of this coming weekend, so wish us luck!
Woohoo, we’re so close to the weekend! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me, even if there’s a chance I’ll be working for a fair bit of it. The important thing is that Husband is not working (he’s been Marvin this week) – so we can finally spend some quality time together…
Friday, 28 April 2017: In-laws’ 38th anniversary at Cape Point
Saturday, 29 April 2017: Breakfast at La Rocca, Canal Walk
Sunday, 30 April 2017: News Cafe breakfast and another Sunningdale sunset
Monday, 1 May 2017: Mayday movies and freaky hot chocolate
That’s all, folks! It seems winter is finally starting to lick its cold tongue at us here in the Cape – stay warm and well. 🙂
Welcome to 2017! My first post of the year is ready for you to view below, filled with moments from brother-in-law Spec’s last week with us. We’re back to work next week ourselves so will be wringing every moment of fun and relaxation out of the coming weekend…

Husband has also been very busy with a vegetable corner of the garden, which I’ll reveal soon. That’s all for now, folks! Hope you’ve enjoyed the first week of 2017.
