I think every August blog post I’ve ever published has mentioned that it’s been a very birthday-filled month. Add my Loeries work coverage to the mix and it’s almost impossible to fit in everything we want or need to do. Despite the craziness we did still get to see both our moms for their birthdays in the past few days, as you’ll see below…
Sunday, 13 August 2017: Mum’s birthday lunch at Moyo
Tuesday, 15 August 2017: Velvet Cake Co sneak peek
Wednesday, 16 August 2017: Opening of CEM Africa Summit
Saturday, 19 August 2017: Mum-in-law’s birthday breakfast at Steenberg’s Bistro 1682
Sunday, 18 August 2017: Coffee tasting tray at The Daily
That’s all, folks! Have a happy, sunny weekend and click here for more of our Velvet Cake Co experience.
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…
Friday, 12 August 2016: Hills Special Stews
Saturday, 13 August 2016: Beach Tavern breakfast, brief Woodbridge Island beach walk and meeting Zeplin
Sunday, 14 August 2016: Family birthday breakfast
Tuesday, 16 August 2016: Business Day Wanted Online launch at Smith Gallery
Thursday, 18 August 2016: Husband flies to JHB, rest of us decamp to the parents’ house

That’s all, folks. Hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend, all! Next week’s update will include how we celebrated our ninth anniversary. 🙂
