was all of it…
But most especially this:
- We took our Kid to the beach yesterday, for a paddle in the rockpools. It wasn’t entirely low tide yet, but it was still low enough to do some exploring and we saw loads of fishies and a few hermit crabs and collected shells. It was fun.
- The Kid spent the weekend with my father at the farm – got to hang out with his pony, Jasmine (yes, The Kid has his own pony) and all the llamas, cows and the pot-belly pig. There was mud, running around, loads of wide open space and my Kid was happy.
- We spent the weekend at his house in Durban – the one I lived in while at varsity.
- The Boyfriend and I got to spend some good alone time together. We had a date night of sorts on Friday night, went to Yossi’s and indulged in some good cocktails and delicious falafel and hummus. The best I’ve ever tasted, actually.
- Saturday morning we discovered a Bread Ahead at Davenport centre and their doughnut centres and chocolate croissants and cappuccino completely rocked our faces off.
- Saturday afternoon we took a drive down to Ballito and got horribly lost looking for the Rain Farm – we were going to a wedding – one of my good friends from high school, finally tied the knot after 10 years.
- It was also an opportunity to catch up with two other friends from high school (one of them is, co-incidentally, the godmother of my child) and for everyone to throw back some tequila.
- Which, if you live in Durban, usually means landing up at Spiga D’Oro for 1AM pizzas – which we did. And devoured.
We arrived home last night, tired and sticky from the saltwater – still covered in sand. Barely bothered to unpack the car, before hitting the sack. Tired, exhausted and completely spent – but happy. Durban was good for us and good to us – so we’ll definitely be back soon. And will hopefully have time to actually see people next time around! (I’m looking at you, Cath Jenkin.)
How was your weekend? Not long enough? Mine neither.
