This Morning...

... I dropped Jurgen off at the airport for his flight to Cape Town.  Even though he's only going to be gone until Wednesday I still teared up (like always) before he went through security and waited until I saw him go through to his terminal before I left.  I don't know why I get so weirdly emotional whenever one of us is flying somewhere without the other.  I think it's from the years that we did distance, when dropping someone off at the airport meant saying goodbye for months upon months instead of just a few days, but that's a story for a another day.  Luckily this time it's a quick trip and he'll be back in Jo'burg before I know it :)

After I dropped him at the airport, I was able to meet up with a friend for a delicious breakfast at a quirky cafe called Succulent near my flat.  We both had their American Style French Toast with berries and mascarpone cheese and it did not disappoint!  I definitely recommend it to any South African readers - it's near Cresta if you're ever in the area!  I meant to take my camera to take some pics of my own, but left my memory card in my computer :/  Fortunately, I was able to pull these from their website to give you an idea of the decor.


They have the most gorgeous cake and cupcake display :)

Straight after breakfast I ran a few errands and bought a couple new books I've been wanting to read (The Last Lecture and Great Expectations) and also rented Sex and the City 2 and the first season of Lost.  Now I'm popping some popcorn, pouring myself a glass of wine and getting ready to enjoy a quiet weekend inside... which I think is just what the doctor ordered!


What are your plans for the weekend?

  3. That sounds like a lovely weekend! I had a great saturday with two picnics, that was lots of fun. Today it rained here but we went to the cinema and saw the new x-men movie which was very good so it was also a great day! What did you think of SATC2? I was quite disappointed... but I really liked the first one.
