And then the Loeries were but a memory. Remember my blog post about last year’s experience? This year was same same but different, as I didn’t jet along to Durban with the rest of the team but was glued to my laptop in Cape Town for five days straight sorting out all sorts of admin, last-minute changes and uploading of content. Husband was up in JHB for much of that time to attend his Gramps’ funeral so t’was an odd, stressful time all round but we survived.
Highlights of the past two weeks below…

That’s all, folks. Hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend, all! Next week’s update will include how we celebrated our ninth anniversary. 🙂
Hello, poor loyal blog reader who’s been set adrift along the winding paths of the internet with no safe harbour in which to dock your thoughts, fretting over my lack of update last Friday. Not only did I have much more to do than I usually do on any given Friday – father-in-law and a friend from Joburg were staying with us to participate in last weekend’s Argus Cycle Challenge (more on that in the next update) – but I also ran into some space/image storage issues right here on WordPress. So much so that I wondered whether it was even worth continuing with this. But, on reading up on how taking photos helps keep memories alive in later years, I gave myself a little pep talk and plunged in, for the benefit of my future self if nothing else. So, rather than pay to keep adding to the blog you’ve known for four years I chose to go with a whole new blog, which you’re now feasting your eyes on. I know, I know, it actually looks very similar to the old blog, but I’ll slowly be easing in some changes to the format so it’s not too much of a shock to the system.
For now, here’s last week’s promised post on Bertie’s sixth birthday…
Saturday, 27 February 2016: Wimpy brekkie, choc-cross buns, Jerry’s Burgers
Sunday, 28 February: Eggs benedict in Melbos
Tuesday, 1 March 2016: Bertie turns six
Can’t believe our furry little boy dog is already six. Click here if you’ve forgotten what I wrote about him on his fourth birthday.
That’s all for now, next update to follow soon…
