This, that and then another thing

Wooooosh.  That’s the sound of the days flying by until Christmas.  Scary stuff.

Saturday was as hectic as predicted and we spent a really relaxed day at home on Sunday and didn’t see anyone.  We all needed it!

Here is Mignon at the mini-golf on Saturday morning.  I should rather call it the walk-around-fake-grass-whilst-fishing-golf-balls-out-of-murky-water-and-protecting-shins-from-random-whacking-with-kiddy-golf-clubs-and-carrying-of-annoyed-toddlers.

My friend Sue had this awesome wine at the post-WP-got-a-fat-smack-rugby-game-braai.  I HAD to take a pic!  (see, even when not blogging I think of my fellow bloggers!)

Then, yesterday I was lucky enough to attend a Noeleen 3talk bookclub event at The Table Bay.  Here is Tannie Evita with her cookbook called Kossie Sikelela, the cover is a poster, very clever!  And I was lucky enough to win a copy of the book.  (ok, realistically speaking I jumped up and waved my hands so they pretty much didn’t have a choice, but hey)

The book is amazing, it’s filled with lovely photos of Tannie Evita and easy-to-follow recipes for the gastronomically challenged like me.  Thanks so much!! 

And lastly.  Cazpi took a lovely pic of Pieter Dirk Uys, but I happened to be in it and had the shock of my life, so I AM NOW ON A DIET.  I’m still deciding if I’ll share my progress, but enough is enough.  Sjoe.

  1. Very cool pics ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, you did wave your arms madly, BUT, you were first – ie – you won their attention ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. Thanks for thinking of me – hope the wine was good! What a lovely event to go to. I bought that book for my mum for Mother’s Day. The vegetarian Thai green curry is easy-peasy and delicious!

  3. Mignon looks beautiful but not too happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know exactly what you mean about the picture thing! I also realised I needed to go on a diet after seeing myself in a picture … and then I got pregnant … so now it has to wait a bit! But as a result of the extra weight from before I look about 20 weeks pregnant and I’m only 11 weeks along ๐Ÿ™

  4. Love the pic of M. I see that expression a lot around here too ๐Ÿ™‚ Brave you doing mini golf with the kids!!!
    Yay for your win! Hope there’s some healthy stuff in there so you can cook up a storm and look fabulous at the end of it all! Not that you don’t look fabulous, but if you want to diet, you mustn’t feel guilty for indulging! Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Don’t worry, you always look further along in your second pregnancy, please don’t be hard on yourself!

  6. And now, I shall slap you. What an awful thing to say. You are NOT big hun. You were however, rather keen. giggle ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. I’ll have a look and get hubby to make it when I am not here, don’t eat red meat ๐Ÿ™‚
