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.

I can’t believe I managed to cut down the endless stream of pics we took this past week into the following, hundreds were left on the ‘cutting room floor’. It’s not usually this big of a task, especially when the bulk of the pics are not from the weekend itself. But this week was special as we had a few days to celebrate an ‘early anniversary’ at Angala Boutique Hotel and Guest House in Franschhoek, and it was possibly one of the nicest breaks we’ve had. Ever. See for yourself…
Saturday, 8 July 2017: Very belated post-Father’s Day breakfast at I ❤ Melkies
Sunday, 9 July 2017: Soup for lupper
Monday, 10 July 2017: Night away at Angala Boutique Hotel and Guest House, Franschhoek
Tuesday, 11, July 2017: Outdoor showers and breakfast at Angala
Before we knew it, the time had come to check out and make our way back home, much more relaxed and peaceful than when we’d set out. So much so that I was told I looked ‘so serene’ when I returned to the office on Wednesday. We’ll definitely visit Angala again!

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. 🙂
It’s once again the weekend, so it’s time to scroll through my latest visual highlights. Last weekend was absolutely lovely as we spent most of it in Wellington. First, we got through the usual end-of week things…
Friday, 20 January 2017: Quiet evening with the doggies
Saturday, 21 January 2017: What to do in Wellington during summer
Sunday, 22 January 2017: Exploring Bain’s Kloof Pass
That’s all, folks! It’s Husband’s birthday this Sunday so expect pics of him in the birthday hat in next week’s update. 🙂
