Weekend In Review

Saturday had the potential to see us all in bed or on the couch for the day as the weather was rather revolting. Capetonians (or perhaps just our tribe) don't have a huge capacity for crappy weather so our default setting is couch and series/movies.

Thankfully a timeous email from a friend had me jumping in the shower; putting on real clothes and heading out to reconnect. She left SA over 2years ago and is now living in Spain. We had such a fabulous relaxed afternoon catching up on each others lives.

(insert photo here …. M…. We need a photo before you go home!)

On Sunday we had Rachel's vocal recital and the family came out in force to support her; including my folks from Mcgregor!  I so look forward to the 'once a year' opportunity to hear her sing. She is unwilling to sing for us at any other time - she sang the theme song from Beauty and the Beast - just amazing.

Very proud of her - she has gained so much confidence in the last year and looked very comfortable on stage despite HUGE nerves.

Uncle Steve sharing some wisdom? ;-)

Some of us headed off to Harry Goeimans, our fav celebratory spot, to indulge in cake and good coffee.

A weekend full of fun, family and good friends. Just what I needed!
