It’s All About The Weekend

For the first time, in a long time, I’ve ventured out of the house on the weekend. Winter is the perfect excuse for spending too much time on the couch, under a quilt, watching Grey’s Anatomy. (I’m now on Season 5 – Izzy has just started hallucinating Denny – fun times)

What could possibly drag me out of my warm cocoon on a Saturday? It was @bananaramagirl’s baby girl’s first birthday (and I was promised an adult party pack – which I never got….*ahem*) and it was @Wi3sa’s house-warming (and I was promised red velvet cupcakes and (condensed)milktart – which I totally got. Yum.). My fiance went with a bunch of his mates on a party bus to Pretoria – it was someone’s bachelor party, and I hear that there was puking on the bus, and out the bus – all the bachelor’s puke, of course.

So what was I doing on Saturday night? Curled up on the couch, under my quilt with Grey’s Anatomy. Heh. Asleep by 9:30. It was awesome. Best Saturday night ever.

Sunday was spent with fiance nursing a hangover – so we watched superhero movies, and then tried out a new spot for lunch. Egoli Cafe, here on Terrace Road in Edenglen. I’d driven past it loads of times, and finally we went to go have a look-see.

In terms of  kids entertainment and amusement – this place is pretty jacked up. There’s an awesome playground/jungle-gym/slides etc, there’s an indoor playroom with a ball pit for the smaller kids, there’s wall/rock-climbing for the older kids and a jumping castle and trampoline. Child minders that are actually good with children,  and nowhere for kids to escape, so mom and dad can eat their meal in relative peace. The peace and quiet (mostly) makes up for the average service and average food. Kid had a whale of a time, so can’t really complain about that.

The rest of Sunday afternoon was spent napping, and The Kid and I left his father to continue having a glorious Sunday afternoon nap and headed off for the park to spend some time together.

What a perfect way to spend, and end a weekend. How was yours?

    I love the post-processing on the last pic, it’s simultaneously moody and peaceful

  2. We had a good one too. One can pardon much to a place if the kids are safely entertained.

    Looking at the photos regarding the children facilities, I can say that it sure looks like an awesome place for children.

    I was sick… and I spent the weekend dosed up on MedLemon and painkillers and trying not to make everyone at the ADHASA seminar sick!
