This past week has been busier than usual, with Husband working most evenings and the whole of last weekend, so we didn’t get out much…
Monday, 18 February 2019: Team meet at M&C Saatchi Abel
As seen on the wall in the waiting area at M&C Saatchi Abel, where we had a quick catch-up meeting at 11am on Monday, 20 Feb.
T’was a female-strong meeting, clearly.
Wednesday, 20 February 2019: Amy Kleinhans-Curd’s lessons from Madiba talk at Red & Yellow
Amy Kleinhans-Curd was the guest speaker at Red & Yellow School’s lunchtime lecture last week – click here to catch-up, if you missed my coverage!
Thursday, 21 February 2019: Kantar’s Man vs machine event
Events held at Kantar’s offices on the Foreshore are among my favourite, as the content is always interesting and the view across the harbour and to Table Mountain is a treat. Click here to catch-up, if you missed my coverage of their Man vs. Machine event!
Saturday, 23 February 2019: W Cafe breakfast and doggie quality time and h
I met up with Mum and Dad for breakfast at Table Bay Mall’s Woolworths’ W Cafe on Saturday morning, as Husband was at work. See some of the yummy things we ate and drank – that’s mum’s ginger, orange and cayenne pepper shot.
I spent lots of quality time with the precious doglets over the weekend, as you can see. Such sweeties.
Sunday, 24 February 2019: Homemade burgers
Lupper at Mum’s once Husband was done with work that evening – homemade burgers, yum.
Monday, 25 February 2019: Chef’s Cape Town lunch, pretty sunset
I got to try Chefs’ lunch offering at a meeting with the Upstairs Ludus on Monday – the chefs take your order, cook it up themselves and bring it to your table, with just three options to choose from each day. The chicken dish was delicious. And those thrice-cooked chips…
Pretty streaky clouds over Lion’s Head as I made my way to the bus for my commute home that evening.
We were in for some rain the following day, which meant the sunlight caught the clouds in the most beautiful way that evening.
Wednesday, 27 February 2019: News Cafe breakfast on National Milktart Day
I was on leave on Wednesday, while Husband finished off a few urgent work things, so breakfasted at News Cafe with my parents. See our early-bird English breakfasts, and the way Mom snapped us cheers-ing our coffee cups and jammed toast. Teehee!
As it was National Milktart Day, I was sure to have a slice or two with some coffee that afternoon.
Thursday, 28 February 2019: News Cafe breakfast on box-packing day
I ended up breakfasting at News Cafe on Marine Circle again on Thursday, this time with Husband and his parents. We sat outside and I opted for the early-bird muesli breakfast this time, so it was not a duplicate of the previous day’s breakfast.
Husband had a quick dunk in the sea later that morning, to reset his batteries from ’10-days’ straight work mode’ into ‘moving house long weekend’ mode…
That’s all, folks! The rest of our time has been spend packing boxes, so watch for all the details of our move in my next update…
Husband was nicknamed ‘Marvin’ this past week (he was on the
night shift at work). I worked from home for a few days so we could see each other but we were much like ships passing in the night. Luckily he’s off this coming week so can recover and reset our internal clocks. It wasn’t all “ work work work” though (sorry if you clicked through to those links and now have two earworms running through your head), we did have a few fun moments, too…
Saturday, 4 February 2017: The Hart Bakery and Melkbos beach visit
We’d not been to The Hart Breadhouse and Eatery in Melkbos for a while, so that’s where we breakfasted on Saturday morning. Here’s my strong cappuccino.
We both had the benedict breakfast for a change. Don’t worry, close-ups to follow…
I had the single bacon benedict…
Husband had the double salmon benedict. Really delicious, we both ate every morsel.
Full to the brim, we need to walk off some of that food before we could get anything done. Luckily, The Hart is just a hop, skip and jump from Melkbosstrand itself. Here is Husband heading towards the sea.
He’s just about the enter the water here.
And he’s in! Look how far away he is here, scampering along the rocks.
I stayed on the shore and admired the scenery. The clouds were just starting to scatter across the sky.
The clouds lightened up a few minutes later and we headed off to avoid the midday sun.
Aww, sweet little doggies. Obviously Bertie’s not trying to lick Bassie in this pic, I just chopped most of myself out so you can focus on their lovely faces.
Bassie wanted more attention so snuggled up close to me and her dad while Bertie went out for a lap around the garden.
Sunday, 5 February 2017: Woolworths Cafe meals and Captain’s Kitchen drinks
We tried the Woolworths’ Cafe in Canal Walk for Sunday breakfast. It only opens at 9am and was packed when we got there, so there was a little wait for the food, but it sure was delicious. I started off with a gingerbread latte while Husband had the bacon-potato cake with basil cream mushrooms.
For me? Possibly the best French toast ever. I went for the Nutella-banana-crushed nut option, as you can see. Each mouthful was a warm cocoa delight.
After a few Sunday chores we stopped at the beach. Husband scrambled along the rocks before taking a quick dip in the sea, as he does.
For our Sunday afternoon treat we decided on cocktails at Captain’s Kitchen in Eden on the Bay. It was sunny and bright out, just right for my strawberry shake and Husband’s Long Island Ice Tea.
Lol at this: Far too bright and we have mismatched expressions, but I think it’s gorgeous.
Thursday, 9 February 2017: Work meet at M&C Saatchi Abel CT
On Thursday morning, I popped into the M&C Saatchi Abel offices with Charlene from our sales team. What a lovely, bright space they work in!
That’s all, folks! Happy weekend 🙂
