"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

nothing quite like a happy late breakfast....

When Dalene, Amy, Kelly and I arrived at Manno for brunch yesterday the boys had just settled in after their run up Lions Head.  Dave and Matt were sipping on what looked like an exotic cocktail but was in fact carrot and orange juice with some berries and leaves floating in it.  Nic was sideways sipping a cold Darling Brew.  It was 11.30 and Nic's first words to us was 
"Brunch without Booze is just a sad, late Breakfast" 
(he was obviously reacting to my raised eyebrow at the brown bottle 
in front of him)
He proceeded to order Dalene, Kim and I a bottle of wine to accompany our breakfast order.  

Good choice Nic - Very yum

 Pensive brothers listening to Kelly's daily lesson

 Kelly mid-sentence (difficult to catch her not talking)
At least she is entertaining!!
 Kelly and Amy and the American Pancakes with crispy bacon and 
maple syrup, kept in line with a porcupine quill
(Leave them alone, Nic)
Eggs Benedict
Very good but Kim had the Coconut Breakfast 
(coconut bread, poached eggs, salmon and avo)
which looked fantastic
Next time

I felt quite trendy sitting on the pavement in Kloof Street with 3 hunky guys, 3 young pretty girls, my sister (very, very pretty too) and a Yorkie (yes one of those little fluffy dogs - Kim has the cutest puppy)


Ooops and Griquas did not beat WP :(, Matt is now back in Kimberley :( :( and it is cold and wet in Cape Town - but on the bright side - we put the fertilizer on the lawn at the perfect time before these rains, Mike has lit the fire, Manchester United beat Liverpool (so he is smiling (and warm)) and tomorrow is a holiday.

Maybe Tiger can make up 4 shots and win the golf tonight!!
