Varen's Birthday Festival

So it's been a whirlwind past 2 days ... Wednesday was Varen's 25th birthday, so Happy Birthday :)

Which meant, that we have been eating out constantly. Tuesday evening was a big one with his whole family at Pigalle in Sandton. It was a lovely restaurant with good food and wine. Not cozy, but still fancy enough for a really special evening. I had divine duck spring-rolls to start and for mains we shared a huge seafood platter for two.

Oh, and he'd made me go to gym after work ... that requires serious dedication after such a lengthy break over the Christmas season. But, it wasn't too bad. And I had my new iPod to keep me company and push me past complete exhaustion ;)

On Wednesday he got to open the gifts I'd spent my precious weekend hunting down. And he was suitably pleased ;) For lunch we went for all-you-can-eat sushi at the Sakura in Melville with The Brad.

And that evening I took him for his Birthday dinner at my favourite normal food restaurant, Soulsa. As opposed to my fav Thai food restaurant, Cranks, or my fav Indian food restaurant, Ghazal. Soulsa was fabulous, as usual. We both had my all-time ever best haloumi starter and I had ostrich for mains. I love this restaurant. We were also delighted by a display of true Joburg electrical storming so, we had the pleasure of sitting both outside and upstairs during the evening. Pity we missed the traditional Melville Xai-Xai dawa.

All this eating out, I'm really going to need to get back into the gym-ing thing soon!

This evening should be a quite one at home complete with book-reading in the bath :) We were supposed to have our Book-Club end-of-year party (yes, late, I know!) this evening but it's been moved again to the beginning of February. Still, I'm looking forward to it :)
