As I have said before it seems like yesterday was Sunday evening and now tomorrow is Thursday. Sunday night, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Thursday.
However this week, although it has been busy has been documented. So some pictures and explanations to share.
It started on Monday with Janey bringing her granddaughter to office to meet us all
Hello Carly - 3 months old and very cute
Shoes for Amy
Amy has her outfit planned and sorted for the wedding. She has been looking for shoes. While out at lunchtime yesterday (Tuesday - OMW there is a Tuesday!!) I came across these and had to buy them for her. She had specific requirements - had to be a wedge, had to be fairly high and had to be "taupe" to go with the slightly greenish dress she is wearing. Very chuffed that she liked them and she visited briefly last night and paraded around with them on like she walked in shoes like that everyday of her life.
Garden in September
Have been sorting out stuff in the garden every evening this week. Such a pity that the weather was not great 2 weeks ago when the Clivia and the Pride of Madeira (above) was at it's best. Usually Clivia are at their best in October but mine are already past their best. But the weather has been great which makes for getting busy in the garden in the evening a total pleasure.
These are my favourite. They last for ages (I can't even remember when I planted them) and they have that delicate look which goes so well with the lavender.
First time I have flowers on the Cape May in 4 years. They must have heard me saying that they were on their last warning. FIFO (flower or ....). I do speak sternly to them at times.
I bought 4 bushes at a market last year and they have just done nothing. Suddenly they have doubled in size and are sporting white blooms (the lady did not lie about the colour, I was beginning to doubt her). I love Spring!!
Woolies have their steak on special. An absolutely delicious supper on Tuesday night (it has a night too). I went for the healthy option without Chippies chips (I have decided that life is too short to fry your own chips (and clean the pot)). How pretty is the salad? Pick n Pay - Sweet Summer Leaves and Michael had the chips option. (Gareth and Nic, you were invited!!)
This is Robyn-Leigh (Janey's daughter)
I have to write a whole post on this story next week. In a nutshell, she is Janey's estranged daughter who came to our offices this morning to see her mother. It is a long and sad story so I have to get all my facts straight but she is the most delightful 17 year old who is about to write matric. Remember I have introduced you to Janey before.
Mother and Daughter
Mid-week break - A picnic for lunch at Kirstenbosch today
Donne, Ginny, Nic and Judy
We missed Philip (Ginny's son), Nikki and Jeffrey. Next time. Thanks Ginny.
