1. For me, there’s nothing like that drive home on a Friday afternoon, knowing it’s the weekend! ~ 2. Curry & wine at The Raj to celebrate my birthday with KK. My new favourite dish: Aloo Paratha which is a potato filled roti. ~ 3. Wimpy breakfast & cupcakes with the Running Junkies after track. Makes waking up at 4:30 worth it. ~ 4. Snuggling with Annie. Her post-op checkup is this week. ~ 5. Sunday morning run. It’s mid Autumn and look how beautiful and green everything still is! ~ 6. My banting cheese bread – perfect with any braai.
During our December break last year, we managed to spend quite a few arb weekends lazing around the pool the entire day doing nothing; and I mean absolutely nothing! It was glorious! I recall telling KK that I would really miss it when we went back to work and normality kicked into gear from January. But he challenged me saying, well, why must things change? We can still make time for lazy weekends next to the pool during the year can’t we?
So it’s not exactly a New Year’s Resolution, but a promise I made to myself that I would try as often as I could to ensure that we still spend those lazy Sundays at the pool, lying in the sun, braai’ing, listening to music and truly enjoying the weekend. I’m proud to say we’ve stuck to it. As Autumn creeps into our lives, I know that the weekends are limited in terms of sunning ourselves for hours outside. But I’m glad we did. I’m even prouder to admit that I swam. Often!
