Great weekend and 4-day week!

The weekend was SOOOOO NICE... Had such a good time with Chrislie, Chris (confusing, I know!!!) and some family. Friday night was my cousin's 30th b-day party, which was great, except for the bumper to bumper traffic late at night on the highway due to roadworks. It was crazy!

Sat morning I had athletics coaching, after which Chrislie and I did some shopping. We then met up with my cousin and her kiddies and husband again at the botanical gardens, probably my favourite outdoor place in JHB. We were seriously tired after all that, so spend the evening just watching Death at a funeral (great movie) and chilling.

Sunday morning we went out for breakfast, then SERIOUS shopping, bought some roast beef and yummy bread for lunch. Chrislie wanted to take some pics of a Joburg view, which led us to discover Aasvoel-kop (directly translated = Vulture hill), which is just breathtaking. If it were a year and a half ago that would be LITERALLY breathtaking, as it is between 1800 and 2000m above sea level, which means I would have needed a seriously strong flow of O2 just to walk a few metres SLOWLY. Stunning views in all directions. We took some great pics! Afterwards we had coffee at Jenny and Paul's place. Was great to see them again too.

Well that's the weekend in a nutshell... Really cool and way too short. Tonight went to gym after work, and cleaned the flat. Eating potato for supper now and feeling rather lazy to take a bath. At least this week is only 4 working days long, as Friday is Easter, and Chris and I are driving down to PE!!!!! 4 sleeps...
