Friday happiness

TGIF

What a week!  I’m in serious need of a weekend.

Has Friday ever taken so long to arrive??  I’m counting down the minutes until 4:00pm because this week has taken it out of me and I’m in need of lots of chocolate and wine.

Being Friday I’m linking up with the lovely Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/ Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/ and Beth http://coffeeuntilcocktailsblog.com/ with a weekly gratitude list.

  • Fun Saturday in Langebaan.  We had breakfast at Ginja Beanz, visited West Coast National Park, then stopped off in Darling for lunch on the way back.
  • Delicious donuts on Sunday.

  • My mini orchid in the kitchen.

  • New bedding – been sleeping so well on new sheets and pillowcases.  Even in this heat.
  • Reading before work with a cup of tea a few mornings this week.
  • Dinner at one of our favourite restaurant on Tuesday.
  • Clean home and an empty laundry basket – feeling organized!
  • Had fun at a Pound class at gym (a workout with yoga and pilates inspired moves and drumming).  It is a lot of fun and quite a workout at the same time!
  • Grocery shopping for most of the weekend done last night so we can start our weekend as we leave the office (anyone else hate grocery shopping as much as me?)
  • Did two 4km runs this week.

This weekend I’m planning on going to another yoga class and then have brunch afterwards.  We have a day trip planned for Sunday but it is weather dependent so we’ll see.

Have a great weekend everyone!

xx

    How do you keep your orchid looking so beautiful and healthy? I heard they were almost impossible to kill and I received one as a gift and all the buds have since fallen off 😥I have the anti-green thumb! Lol.

    Sounds as though you’ve had a lovely week, my friend. I actually enjoy going grocery shopping but hate doing it on a weekend since that’s when everyone else is in the store. Enjoy the yoga and brunch this weekend! Xo

      I haven’t had this orchid for long so give me time lol! I have been following the instructions SO carefully as I have had a cactus die before (and that takes some doing) haha. They say 2 ice cubes in summer (once a week) and one in winter. So far so good….

      Hope you had a wonderful weekend xoxo

    I’m ready for the weekend, too – this week has just taken it out of me. And I’m currently eating an apple with peanut butter for breakfast and now all I want is one of those delicious donuts your photo is teasing we with!! Hope you enjoy your chocolate and wine tonight! 🙂

    Are those cinnamon donuts in the upper left corner? I’d pick one of those.

    I love to grocery shop, but only in small doses. I tend to go right for the frozen pizza, then let them thaw out by accident by the time I get to the cookie aisle. First world problems!

      They are the milk tart flavor and totally delicious. Milk tart is a really popular dessert in South Africa and when we saw this flavor at Dunkin Donut we had to try it (it has been one of our favourites for a while now).

      I’m thinking if our grocery shopping included pizza then I might enjoy it more!

    Yes! Empty laundry basket twins! It feels good, doesn’t it? Those donuts are so cute! I bet they were delicious too! And I’m with you, I’m not much for grocery shopping either. We’ve been doing it on Sundays lately which I don’t love, but it is what it is I suppose! Anyway, the weekend is here! I hope it is lovely!

    Full laundry baskets will be the death of me I swear it!
    Go you for running TWO 4 ks! That is amazing woman!
    I am intimidated by orchids. I will not lie. They are so pretty but they look so delicate. Way to delicate for my “kills succulents with too much water and love” hands

      Laundry is really a never ending chore! It was a nightmare for us with the stricter water restrictions (we are currently on 100litres per person which feels amazing compared to the 50litres last year).
      I had a cactus years ago (take note HAD – past tense) and it didn’t last well. I got back from leave one day and it had lifted out of its pot like it was trying to run away. With my “green fingers”, I don’t blame it!
