Jacaranda studies

The rule in Durban is that if the Jacaranda trees are in blossom it is too late to start studying for your final exams at Varsity. So the flowers are blossoming now.. and it's just as well I have long finished Varsity... but every year I remember.

Evening walk

We try and get out for an after-work walk each week, so here Kate-Lynn, myself and Llewellyn take a stroll from the Guesthouse, wandering a few ks up the road and back to the Terrace for supper.

The week that was

I forgot to take photos the last week, but did some fixingup around the home.. put up the clock Kate-Lynn made for me, a new towel rail in the bathroom, fixed the guest loo and planted some herbs. I also made a pretty decent chicken curry and made potatoe salad.. part of my 2010 pact to experiment and make a few new recipes each month.

I have also been looking at property on the net.. keen to buy a little place in either the centre of Cape Town or the de Waterkant area. We will be going down on the 1st October to see if I can finalise something. Wouldlike a 1-bed loft apartment for our own visits there and also to refer guests to who are visiting Cape Town after staying with us in Durban.

In a flash

The week went by in a flash and Mark is already off back to Cape Town. See you in 3 weeks Matie Mark!

Evening with Mel

A nice surprise was the whistle-stop trip former Idols star Melanie Lowe made to Durban this weekend giving a performance at the local St Clements restaurant in Musgrave Road. We thoroughly enjoyed the show - Mel you are a real star! Seen in the pics are Llewellyn, Melanie and her girlfriend Gaye.
