Walkabout Weekend My Life 09 AUG 2011

So another weekend of Chantelle working successfully navigated, bringing us one step closer to the much anticipated long weekend away to Pinnacle Point which kicks off on August 12th! Of course, what I am in reality saying is that this weekend past didn’t really feature any highlights as such, but I’ll race you through just for completeness’ sake.

Friday evening was another, well Friday evening, with the bog standard routine of play with Jessica and get her into bed, play catch-up with wifey over supper once she arrives home (she surprised me with Al Forno’s pizza as a gift from the guest house), and then watch some television and tinker on the computer before picking up Bleach, reading a couple of pages and then hitting Snoreland. In other words, nothing newsworthy whatsoever.

Saturday was bath Jessie morning, take her for a stroll around the complex, hit the shops, go for another long stroll along the beach, pop in to visit mommy at the guest house (ooh, I’ll take a Savanna, thanks), eat hot dogs for lunch, watch the insane Dead Leaves (anime) and Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek (cel-shaded anime) with Jess, do the bed time routine, play catch-up with wife over hotdogs once she arrives home, watch some television, tinker around on the computer and then watch a bit of Aeon Flux (yay, Charlize!) before joining wifey in very cold bed in order to hit Snoreland.

Sunday can be boiled down into breakfast time with Jess, some household chores, a long walk to Gordon’s Bay harbour, popping in for a visit with mommy plus Whammy and Louise at the guest house (ooh, I’ll take a Savanna, thanks), play time with Jessica until mommy arrives home early, a family visit to Pick ‘n Pay, braai time, bed time for Jessie, catch-up with wifey, a teensy bit of computer tinkering and telly watching, and then straight into bed for more pages of Bleach, waiting for wifey to join me so that I can hit Snoreland.

The end.

Now you know, so have some pictures below, more available in the separate photo gallery

P.S. A special note to my Dad – Jessie loves Ms. Caterpillar. I put it up in her cot and she hasn’t stopped pulling on all the hanging bits, listening to the music and watching the lights! Great gift (even if we had to wait a couple of months before we could use it!) :)
