Xmas 2014

Well hello there 2015! Shew.

In case you were wondering, yes the mild panic and realisation that we have only a mere (approx) 3 months left before The Littlest One arrives has set in. We could remain in denial right up until we got home from our holiday on Sunday ... now, not so much.

So the break and holiday was good. Busy, but good. We had a lovely time visiting The Trucker's Mom with his sister and niece for Xmas Eve and Xmas Day (that seems like forever ago!). And then we flew to Cape Town on Boxing Day and jam-packed a lot of family time and visiting friends!

We tried some new restaurants. First up was the new Honest Chocolate Cafe for brunch. While I definitely recommend popping in, I'd say rather save this for an afternoon tea than a brunch. It's a bit much chocolate first thing in the morning! 3 of us shared a Banana Bread Bunny Chow and a Chocolate Nachos. The Bunny Chow was definitely the favourite.

And we did a long lazy lunch at Cosecha (which I booked after reading this review :) ). It was awesome and I highly recommend it. It's a gorgeous setting and the food was yummy.

As usual, I read a bunch of JD Robb books :D

There was lots else, of course, like our most used Xmas pressies (so far): my Zoku Fish Slow-Pop Freezer Mould (yes, I asked for this specifically and which we've discovered works brilliantly with Sir Juice ... I highly recommend this for surviving summer!) and the money we got that we bought a blow up pool with on Sunday after arriving back to the Jozi heat. Winning.

Right now tho, I need to dive into my inbox since everyone else got back yesterday (I couldn't face starting with a 5-day week!).
