And it’s Back to the Grindstone! My Life 28 SEP 2009

Man, what an awesome four day mini-holiday that I’ve just come off of! :)

Thanks to yet another project deadline bungle I was offered the choice of working late on Tuesday to make a Wednesday deadline and get Friday off in return, an offer which was of course simply to good to refuse! And with the Heritage Day public holiday on Thursday, what a way to kick off a super long weekend!

I’ll break everything down into more detail when I get a chance of course, but for now an executive summary will suffice, so I’ll start things off by mentioning the fabulous fondue (held in lieu of a braai thanks to the shitty weather in GB) featuring Damen, Michelle, Rob, Laluna, Chantelle and yours truly on Thursday afternoon/evening, followed by a trip through to Ratanga on Friday with C (who turns out to be rather scared of anything remotely resembling a roller-coaster), and then rounded off with a viewing of Fame, which despite it’s excellent production values turned out to be a rather tepid and boring affair in my opinion.

Saturday Chantelle and I played tourists and went for a long drive around the Cape Peninsula and after a lunch at Fogeys in Muizenburg, ended up visiting with Claire at her offices for more than just a hour or two! Pizza treat for the Montgomery clan and then a spot of visiting with my folks, and that just about wrapped up Saturday nice and neatly.

Sunday, oh Sunday, started off with me busting up my piggy bank and laying down 11 big ones to purchase our very first 40″ Samsung Full HD LCD television, an absolute beauty if I say so myself! Then it was a quick lunch with the Montgomery clan and then off to GB where we set up the TV and got to grips with more wedding stuff, the end result being a particularly beautiful menu design and a 90% complete seating arrangement!

Oh, and did I mention that I enjoyed a healthy dose of squash battles on both Saturday and Sunday morning?

See, no wonder I’m so tired today at work! :)
