Hubby and I had date night last night and I had to find a restaurant. He wanted something close to home that wasn’t the food-court at Tygervalley but not stuffy. No pressure!
I eventually came across a place called The Mount in Durbanville and it was very nice. Nothing fancy, good food, reasonably priced. After an initial mix-up with a table in the smoking area, they recovered very nicely. Service was good.
We had a bottle of wine, mains each and shared a starter and dessert, just over R350. Not bad. They also have a jungle gym outside, so I think we’ll venture back out there for a meal with the kids soon. Not today though, it’s meant to be 37 degrees in Cape Town!
Initially we were talking about kids and work etc and I looked at my watch and it was 9h30pm. Next thing I looked and it was 11pm! We quickly had to pay and leave as my parents were looking after our sprogs.
A friend went to the UK and brought Daniel and the girls some educational stuff from Hamley’s . He got a 150 piece puzzle and I thought there was no way he was going to be able to build it. (he is only turning 4 in May) Well, he locked himself in the playroom with Daddy until the puzzle was built and refused to each supper. He then proceeded to re-build the puzzle all by himself. He was very systematic about it, started with the outside and then did the inside. I am hugely impressed!
Must dash, little fingers in the way..
