Weekly Wrap-Up: Another Holiday Week

Due to two public holidays, the schools have all been closed for the last week. We run our school with government school terms so it was only fair for the kids to have the week off too. Despite being off, they both did some catching up, but also had loads of free time to spend with friends. 

On Monday we celebrated my nephew's 3rd birthday.
 It was a pizza party in the park.

 He is just the cutest little guy and it is a delight to watch him grow into a sweet little boy.

Moms, dads, and kids from tots to teens and dogs all enjoyed the sunshine and fun.

On Tuesday I lifted Josh for a work related round trip from Somerset West to Town. It was wonderful to spend time chatting with him as we spent hours together in the car. We enjoyed brunch at a delightful restaurant that he had discovered while working in Somerset West. He also treated me to the best coffee in the area. 
My dear sister popped past to say her goodbyes as she and her husband were heading back to KZN. It has been wonderful having them around over the last couple of weeks. 

On Wednesday I had a day to myself and spent time catching up on all those little bits and pieces that needed to be seen to.
In the evening my friend and I enjoyed Girlfriends Getaway at the movies.
Great laughs, spoiled with goodie bags and a prize in the lucky draw for me!

Worker's Day meant hubby was home and we visited his parents for coffee and enjoyed a trip to the nursery.

The nursery had a massive sale and it was great to pick out some plants for the garden at reduced prices.

On Thursday evening my niece and daughter whisked me away over the mountain for the night. Our destination was a magnificent house on a beautiful estate where they have been house sitting for the last couple of weeks.

What a treat to be given a delicious dinner prepared by them.

 Girly chit chat, movies, music, laughter and fun!
 Just what I needed!

On Friday, none of the kids were home so I got busy in kitchen. I harvested basil from the garden and made basil pesto with a hint of chili, some tomato and chili jam and beetroot and apple chutney.
 A satisfying and productive morning!
 After a day in the kitchen, it was kind of hubby to treat us to fish and chips for diner and we enjoyed a moonlight walk with our energetic and crazy dog down at the beach.

Today it was back to my Dad's art studio to sit as a model for the artists this morning. Keren was painting too and Zak joined us for the visit.

We got to see the week old baby Saffron enjoy her bottle.
She is just gorgeous.

A wonderful week! How was yours?
