The week that was

It has been a busy week and I’m thrilled that the weekend is less than 3 hours away.

Each Friday Lindsay Charlotte and Beth  host a link up called What’s up weekend?  Bloggers take stock of what made us happy during the week and it is a wonderful way to start the weekend as we share our gratitude lists.

My list this week included:

  • Exploring Arniston and Cape Agulhas last weekend.  We went through extremely early to Arniston and were in time for the sunrise then we walked around I got a few snaps.



Then off to Cape Agulhas which is the Southernmost Town in Africa.

We then headed to Hermanus where we stayed the night.

  • Eggs Benedict.  Had mine with salmon on the side at The Bistro the next morning.


  • Buying the perfect pair of navy high heels. Finding a pair of navy shoes is like looking for a unicorn, a mermaid and the Loch Ness Monster.
  • Old favourites for dinner – boerewors rolls and oven chips made my Monday!
  • Rain this week. Our dam levels are still critically low so we are so grateful for every bit of rain.
  • The wonderful community of bloggers I’ve discovered in the last few months
  • Hearing from my colleague who left at the end of last month. Miss our laughs but at least we have e-mail.
  • Read “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom. Brilliant.  Loved Morrie’s attitude and beautiful view on life and how it should be lived.  Determined to stress less over rubbish and live more in the moment.
  • The heater
  • Watching sitcoms that make you laugh after a long day at work.

What is on your list?

  1. It sounds like you have had an incredible week! I agree about navy shoes. I have yet to find my pair.


    • It was – thank you 🙂
      Navy shoes are so rare!


    • Thank you 🙂
      It was a great weekend – Monday just arrived too quickly.


  2. I like the mix of big things (trips) and small things (TV & books) on your list. I feel like that further keeps one grounded. Lol
    This week we had some change ups at work, some good news on the house selling front, and some evenings at home (finally!)- so overall a good week 🙂


    • Yes I agree – life is about being grateful for the big and little things that make up the week 🙂
      Sounds like you had a good week! Congrats on the good news!


  3. I haven’t read Tuesdays with Morrie in ages, but your post makes me want to reread it ❤ I remember it being a beautiful book.

    "Finding a pair of navy shoes is like looking for a unicorn, a mermaid and the Loch Ness Monster." This made me LOL 🙂 I don't think I've ever looked for a pair of navy shoes before; I have enough trouble with swimsuits and jeans!

    Your photos are stunning, and your breakfast looks delicious! Hope you get some more rain, and that you have a lovely weekend!


    • It really is the sort of book you can read over and over – so beautiful.
      Don’t get me started on finding jeans! Seriously an impossible task for me lol.
      Thank you – I love taking pics whenever I can.
      We are supposed to get a bit of rain this week 🙂
      Hope you had a wonderful weekend.


  4. Love your photos. I’ve never had Eggs Benedicts, but they look so good. I don’t usually buy heels, but I know how you feel when you purchase the perfect pair of shoes. I hope you have a great weekend.


    • Thank you!
      Yes finding the perfect pair of shoes is always a treat! Hope you had a wonderful weekend 🙂


  5. Yay for some much-needed rain! I do like a nice rain day here and there. That’s great you can still talk to a co-worker that left. That’s what I hate about leaving jobs – I miss all the people I chatted with all the time.



    • Even with social media which makes staying in contact easier – it isn’t the same as chatting to someone everyday and having a laugh. Thank goodness for e-mail and Whatsapp 🙂


  6. Lovely photos from your trip! And I love a good Eggs Benedict! I haven’t had one in so long, I think that needs to change!


    • Thank you 🙂
      It is one of my favourite breakfasts.


    • I was actually hesitant to read it at work for this reason! However anyone who has read Morrie will understand how you felt. They way he looked at life was priceless – it is the sort of book you can re-read because of the lessons in each chapter.


  7. The weather is changing seasons here, or starting to and your mentioning heater made me smile. 🙂

    If I ever come to visit your country (and I will one day, I promise), you’ll have to show me around. Your pictures are just beautiful, hun.

    You’re quite right about the navy heels, they’re like finding a needle in a haystack. Lol

    Have a great week my friend. 🙂


    • It seems so many other bloggers are looking forward to fall – here I’m craving the warmer weather and cannot wait to pack the heater away 🙂

      Thank you – I love taking pics whenever I can and that yes would be awesome – would love to show you around 🙂

      I hope you are having a great weekend so far.
