Hooray for Friday!

New pic

I love Fridays not only because the weekend is hours away but also because it means linking up the lovely Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/ Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/ and Beth http://coffeeuntilcocktailsblog.com/ with my weekly gratitude list.

This week was a good one.  Got back into our gym routine, had a date night, did some gardening and visited the spring one morning to fetch water.  We are currently on 70l per person but using spring water means conserving more at home.  The water we collect is not treated so we don’t drink it but we use it around the house.

This weeks gratitude:

Had a fun girls day on Sunday and shopped up a storm with a friend of mine.  She found me the exact top I was looking for in my size.  I swear if shopping was an Olympic sport my friend would win gold!  I spoilt myself with some new pj’s and slippers from Woolies which are so pretty and summery.  Also found a navy pair of shorts and two other tops that I know will go with everything.

Date night on Monday with my hubby.  Went to one of our favourite restaurants for a delicious dinner after a long day.  Great start to the week.

Hubby’s calendar arriving yesterday.  I was so excited to see the finished product.  12 beautiful pictures of waterfalls and streams in the Western Cape.  I’m looking forward to putting the calendar up in 2019!

Had 2 great workouts this week.

Recycling, filling up at the spring, spending time in the garden.  Feels like a green week!

Looking forward to this weekend and another adventure up the West Coast.  What about you?  What are your plans for the next 2 days?

  1. Hey love,

    So here’s a question for you about the water consumption – do they track your water usage and are you cut off when you’ve reached the max? How does that work. Again, I’ve said it before, but everytime I’m at the sink, I think of you and all the bloody water we waste. We waste so much of EVERYTHING here in North America, it’s quite, quite disgusting and unnecessary.

    Gardening sounds so relaxing and peaceful. Makes me think of spring and looking forward to the months ahead. 🙂

    Hope you have a great week hun! xoxo


    • Hey Lindsay,
      Some people have water metres which means they get allocated an amount and they cannot go over that amount. If they finish it, then it is finished until the next day (when the new amount is made available). A lot of people watch their usage by looking at their bill and then seeing what they used during the month. People can request a water meter or if there is excessive usage one will get fitted.
      The warmer weather here has been lovely and we even got a little rain yesterday (which we are always happy for).
      Hope you had a good weekend. This week is flying we are on our way to the next 🙂
