A DOUBLE DOSE OF HAPPY 48

I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY INTERNET CONNECTION, HENCE MY ABSENCE FROM THE BLOGS. I AM BACK UP AND RUNNING AND WILL TRY TO CATCH UP WITH ALL MY FRIENDS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

My birthday party on Sunday was riotous. With a bunch of dear friends, all witty and clever women, I lunched at Weltevreden Farm and was royally spoilt with gorgeous gifts, great food and sweet treats fit for a princess.

My crown soon slipped, no small blame on the wine, I am sure…

Emboldened, I decided to ignore my fear of heights and clambered up onto an old wagon to feed the chickens.

Thanks to My Pal Sal, who lifted me down safely.

Monday’s affair was very tranquil by contrast. My MIL took me to lunch at a nearby Greek restaurant, Plaka.

 

It was perfect; the décor is serene, the staff attentive and the food is consistently good.

We both opted for the kleftiko and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

My thanks go to all these women in my life, I am blessed.

  8. Belated Very Happy Birthday again, Cindy! It’s wonderful to see what a delightful time you had 😀 Glad that your internet connection is playing ball again; I can just imagine the frustration…

  9. Happy Belated Birthday Dearly Beloved!! I remembered though I did not have internet access the entire week I was on Leave. I was telling my colleague about Weltevreden Farm that it is a must “go”. JHB people are so fortunate to have such lovely places in your surrounds. Grandy looks great too.
