A weekend away with friends

A couple of weeks ago we went to Franskraal with a couple of friends of ours and their daughter. It was a great weekend with lots of ice-cream, braai-ing, beach time and chatting. I love really love the Franskraal house – it’s a perfect place to escape from the busyness of life a weekend or for a mid-week break….hint hint David. I also love how it can be shared with our friends – it’s big enough for everyone to come with. Here a few of my highlights from the weekend away. xKx

Gather some friends and visit The Spice Route

A couple of weeks ago a group of friends and I went to The Spice Route. Some of us had been there before and some on us, like me really wanted to go – so one evening over supper we planned the event. When I told people that we were going there I was asked why it’s called The Spice Route. I was also told that they don’t know how it got it’s name as there was no spice there. I’m not sure which part of The Spice Route they went to but I found lots of spice there. In case […]

Weekends are for connecting

A little bit of crazy connection

WOW! The weekend went past quite quickly, but it was really good. It was busy but busy in a way that allowed David and myself space to connect with people and each other. Connecting with people is one of my favourite things to do. Sometimes I feel like life can get SO busy that we end up only seeing our friends once in blue moon. This results in us ending up missing each other, as well as everything that is happening in our lives. This happens a bit too often for me, where I miss people but I really want to and […]

The weekend that was

I feel like the weekend has just zoomed past – two minutes ago it was Friday and now it’s Monday. On Saturday I attempted to make peanut butter chocolate fudge. I found the recipe on Outside In – An Alternative Lifestyle blog. My attempt ended up in a massive explosion of chocolate all over my husband and kitchen. I was using the stick blender whisk attachment and it kind of made a tornado of the mixture lifting it out the bowl and splattering it around the kitchen and David who was looking for a dish for me. It was VERY […]
