Forgive me for sounding tedious as it feels like I begin every review of a date night with ‘I was exhausted and could have stayed at home’ but to be honest, this is how I feel nearly every time we go out. I liken it to exercise and, well…sex as it’s those things that you often don’t feel like doing but once you do … [Read More]
A couple of weekends ago, we were very lucky to be hosted for a night at The Hout Bay Manor.
With my girls already at granny and hubby and I starving (as we had been so busy working that we kind of skipped lunch), we decided to go to Beau Constantia as I have been wanting to go for ages. With it being just a few minutes drive from the Hout Bay Manor it was the perfect place to go for a snack and drink before heading for our night away…. [Read More]
This past weekend we were so grateful to be hosted by the Hout Bay Manor for a very relaxing night away.
I don’t like to divulge too much information of my home whereabouts but let’s just say I am rather familiar with Hout Bay and, I will admit, rather biased about this beautiful little town/village/ suburb. … [Read More]
Last week, we had the wonderful opportunity of being hosted at Umi Restaurant in Camps Bay. I was really looking forward to this as I have not been before and seeing as my general impression of restaurants along the Camps Bay strip is that they are very pricey and definitely more for the tourists, I was looking forward to seeing if this was true of Umi. … [Read More]
Warning: If you find swearing offensive then it is best to not read this post.
You might not say it from the heading of this post but I am not really one for swearing profusely. However, when frustration arises, there is no other word that allows one to express oneself quite so eloquently as the good old ‘F’ word. ‘Oh Bother, bugger, gosh darnit’ just do not have quite the same impact … [Read More]
This morning (Saturday), I tried out this place called @MyHome for breakfast. It’s one of those places that you feel like you’ve always known and you immediately feel comfortable as you walk in…. [Read More]
I had been looking forward to this date night for a while. A month actually as that’s when I booked us into the chocolate appreciation course at Lindt Studio. Of course, as just seems to happen on our date nights, it was pouring with rain and freezing cold but even that didn’t deter me as I was ready for some chocolate! 😉 … [Read More]
We are so lucky to live in Hout Bay and be absolutely spoilt for choice of good restaurants to go to. We frequent quite a few of them but we had never been to Cheyne’s before. I have only heard good things about it and have been wanting to go for quite a while now so was really excited to finally be trying it out for ourselves…. [Read More]
The other night, after dropping my girls off at granny’s house (granny rocks!) with the intention of going to a movie, we decided last minute that actually that wasn’t what we were in the mood for. … [Read More]
It has been a bit of a rough week, with the anniversary of my dad’s passing (For My Dad), plus both my husband and I have been up working most nights this week so I was really looking forward to going out and spending some time with my hubby away from computers, TV, phones and all the distractions at home. … [Read More]
We were trying out a new bay sitter so thought it best that we go for something to eat close by so that we were contactable and within close proximity should we be needed for anything. Wanting to try somewhere new and different to our usual (cause this is how we roll these days) I had heard that Peddlars and Co (otherwise known as Peddlars on the Bend) … [Read More]
