This Long Weekend My Life 15 JUN 2013

Thanks to the cold and wet weather last weekend, we didn’t get up to anything really worth reporting back about, and with Chantelle a bit busy on the Saturday, Jessica and I did the best to entertain ourselves by playing some Just Cause 2, stacking countless tuna tins, and sneaking out for rides on the push bike whenever a little break in the clouds would allow for it.

Sunday on the other hand was a different story, with pretty much all the cloud cover gone, leaving behind a beautiful winter’s day which we made full use of by first doing a spot of shopping, and then following it up with a Sunday afternoon drive through to Grabouw, where we stopped off for a light lunch at the Red Tractor Cafe (part of the popular Peregrine Farm Stall), followed by a bit of a play session on their fun wooden play park.

And as the attached video evidence goes on to show, this seems to really have knackered poor little Jessica, who ended up in bed long before her usual bed time!

This long weekend however is going to be a whole lot more awesome. Chantelle has organised a weekend away for the three of us, booking us in at the remote Rico Suter Country House which sits on the Rico Suter wine farm at the foot of the Waaihoek mountain range, somewhere between Worcester and Ceres. We leave today and come back on Monday afternoon and hopefully with our thumbs held tight, the weather will play along and treat us well! (And if not, well then there is little better than a roaring fireplace in a little farmhouse anyway!)

Can’t wait! :)
