Quick catch up

I have been on leave and hubby and I spent a week exploring Pilansberg National Park and relaxing in Sun City.

First day back to work today and finally got through sorting my e-mails.  At least it is lunchtime now and I can relax with a cup of tea 🙂

As we were away I missed the weekly gratitude posts but better late than never.  Here is mine for last week 🙂

  • The lovely B & B we stayed in when we landed on Saturday last week. Great start to our holiday.
  • Seeing a leopard for the first time was beyond amazing!!  It was our 3rd day on holiday and we’d visited Pilansberg National Park earlier that day. Hubby felt like going back and I’m so glad we did.  It was a breathtaking experience seeing one so close.
  • Being in nature just relaxed us so much.  I wish I had that chilled feeling on ordinary days too.
  • The amazing weather. It was so hot each day and I was thrilled I’d packed in lots of summer clothes!
  • Spending hours in Pilansberg National Park each day and then returning to have a braai and drinks on the balcony was bliss.
  • Getting a haircut and a tint. I haven’t cut my hair since December last year.  Now it is short and I’m a brunette again!


  • Making memories with my husband. He always makes our holidays awesome.
  • Fun in Sun City – so much to do there.
  • Taking a break from social media was wonderful.   I had my phone on but didn’t spend any time on Whatsapps, didn’t log into FB or Twitter and it was so peaceful.
  • A quiet weekend after we flew back on Friday night. We had breakfasts out, went through our photos, took a long drive yesterday and it was a great end to our leave.

    • It was so relaxing and not being online just made it even more peaceful 🙂


  1. It sounds like you and the hubs had a lovely time away! Love your new haircut 🙂 I just had one myself and I felt like a million bucks. It’s amazing what an afternoon of pampering can do!

    Social media breaks are so incredibly necessary… glad we were both able to do this recently 🙂 Wishing you all the best for the week ahead! XOXO


    • Thank you – it is very different and I’m getting used to the short hair 🙂

      Social media breaks are so important – I read that you also took one recently – one feels so good afterwards!

      Hope you are having a great week so far. XOXO


    • Thank you 🙂

      I absolutely love being in nature and it was such a relaxing getaway.


    • Thank you – I’m getting used to it after a week now 🙂


    • It is one of my favourite ways to relax and de-stress.


  2. You look so relaxed, it’s incredible. 🙂 How amazing you saw a leopard. I bet you caught yourself holding your breath it was so beautiful. 🙂 Please feel free to share any pictures your husband took. Hehe!
    I feel so, so much more at peace and calm when I’m surrounded by nature, too. 🙂


    • It was very exciting – first time we’d seen one and yes I definitely held my breath 🙂 I’m going to do a proper post on our holiday and will include a link to hubby’s photos 🙂
