I got this idea from Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com You sum up a month with a sentence (sometimes more) per day. It is basically a snapshot of your month! Remembering a month day by day is not easy so I keep an electronic record and each day just add the previous day’s highlight or happenings and there you go – 30 days condensed.
Friday 1st June 2018: Weekend – hooray! Had the most delicious butter chicken for dinner – awesome start to the weekend.
Saturday 2nd June 2018: Cycling today is out because of the rain. Had breakfast out and then did a bit of shopping.
Sunday 3rd June 2018: Hubby went to Kirstenbosch early this morning and I read and drank tea in bed. We made brunch when hubby got back and then in the afternoon went to gym. I ran 4 km’s, came home to change and then went to the movies. Watched “Life of the party” with Melissa McCarthy – brilliant movie. Had dinner at Cattle Baron and came home for dessert (Dunkin Donuts).
Monday 4th June 2018: Busy day, had an easy but relatively healthy dinner and watched My Kitchen Rules South Africa.
Tuesday 5th June 2018: We went to the butcher after work, then to gym and afterwards did grocery shopping.
Wednesday 6th June 2018: Warm day, said goodbye dry month and had drinks outside
Thursday 7th June 2018: My Mom got most of her test results and they are clear. So so so so extremely relieved!!
Friday 8th June 2018: Delicious curry for dinner – I think this is my new favourite dinner. Perfect for the cold weather.
Saturday 9th June 2018: Rain and lots of it! It cleared up for a bit in the afternoon and Mark went to Kirstenbosch to get a landscape photo (it looked awesome). I pottered around catching up on laundry and started a James Patterson book (The store). Poured more with rain later in the afternoon.
Sunday 10th June 2018: Went to Langebaan and cycled 32 km’s. Not my best cycle – distance or speed. Tried a really steep hill and was exhausted afterwards. Came home and had a late lunch and chilled watching “Life in Pieces”, caught up on “My Kitchen Rules Australia”.
Monday 11th June 2018: Busy day so we had an easy supper after work. Mark had work to do so I watched a horror (“Visions”) while I did some ironing. I guessed the ending very quickly – think I’ve seen too many horrors and thrillers!
Tuesday 12th June 2018: Ran 4.2 km’s after work.
Wednesday 13th June 2018: Lunch with a friend from work, ended an hour early and had dinner at Cattle Baron.
Thursday 14th June 2018: Rain!
Friday 15th June 2018: Start of FIFA World Cup. Got snacks after work to enjoy while we watched the soccer.
Saturday 16th June 2018: Cycled 42 km’s and had lunch at Ginja Beanz in Langebaan.
Sunday 17th June 2018: Read with tea in bed and then went for brunch at Fraiche Ayres. Went to play squash in the afternoon – I’m so out of practice!
Monday 18th June 2018: Went to do a quick grocery shop after work and had an easy dinner. Frozen yoghurt for dessert.

Wednesday 20th June 2018: Ran 4km’s after work.
Thursday 21st June 2018: So cold! Thank goodness for heaters.
Friday 22nd June 2018: Delicious curry for supper – seems to be our weekend routine at the moment and I love it! So glad the weekend is here and can sleep late for 2 mornings.
Saturday 23rd June 2018: Hubby went to Kirstenbosch and Newlands to take more landscape photos and I drank tea and read in bed. We had lunch at Rambling Rose and then took a drive to Cape Point. We both hadn’t been in so many years and even in the rain it was stunning.
Sunday 24th June 2018: Went shopping and had lunch with a friend. Woolies had some amazing promotions on and I saved quite a lot while stocking up on new pajamas and a cardigan.
Monday 25th June 2018: Heard my Mom is back in hospital and being treated for a UTI while they run more tests. Hopefully she can leave after 5 days. Had dinner (sushi) with a friend from work and her cousin.
Tuesday 26th June 2018: Cleaned after work and then treated ourselves to dinner out.
Wednesday 27th June 2018: Horrible headache for most of the day.
