Top 10 things I learnt this weekend….

I always look forward to reading one of my favourite bloggers weekly posts on “10 things” so this week I thought I would try to do a similar list…. All credit to Being Brazen for the idea!

Here are 10 things I learnt this weekend…

1. Summer weather in Winter makes me HAPPY. Reading in the sun while the whole house is quiet even HAPPIER.
2. Doctor’s don’t have all the answers – and sometimes you can have 2 completely different diagnosis from 2 different doctors in 2 days…. sick kids…. sigh….
3. I cannot resist a cheese platter esp brie with figs. YUM.
4. My once placid and sweet baby girl is no longer – she has discovered her own will and boy is it strong!!!
5. A long, lazy, boozy lunch in the sun is what Sunday afternoons are made for.
6. Time spent with good friends is always worth the effort.
7. I love exposing my children to new things even if it’s just Cars 2 at the movies – their excitment and enthusiasm is contagious.
8. My 11.30pm bedtimes are not helping me AT ALL esp when my aforementioned stong-willed daughter decides to wake up a few more times in the night for a few hours at a time…. yawn.
9. I’m an ABBA singstar 🙂
10. Impromtu outings are the best, even if you just spend 2 hours in a new environment it’s really refreshing to have a change of scenery! We had two this weekend. Friday afternoon we took a quick trip for Sinnful ice-cream and enjoyed the sunset on Camps Bay beach. Saturday morning we made the most of the early start and headed out to Joostenberg wine farm on the way to Paarl. A great spot for an outing with kids – pony and wagon rides, jungle gyms, lots of lawn, deli with delicious food, great restaurant, rose nursery – lots to see and enjoy.

There you have it – my weekend in a nutshell. What did you do?

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
