I stayed with Ditha and her hubby on the Thursday and Friday nights. They've got a new house in The Strand, which is so perfect and cozy. We walked down to the beach, had our nails done, went to a market on Friday evening where we had supper, and her brother hosted us for a great meal on the Thursday evening.
On the Saturday morning they dropped me off at Louzanne's parents' house where the baby shower was taking place. Louz and I have been friends for about 29 years... I'm so excited about the upcoming baba in their lives, they are going to make the BEST parents ever! It was also great seeing her parents again too, as well as her brother. I took her mom's car to go and fetch her for the shower. It was awesome, she was super surprised to see me!
I stayed with her and Wouter on the Sat night. We had a braai and just caught up on everything. On the Sunday we went to Babylonstoren, a massive farm with huge gardens where they make all sorts of products. We ate brunch at The Glasshouse (the more informal restaurant there)... awesome scones with cream and jam, and some earl grey tea. One of her friends Uli also joined us. Back in 2012 when I visited her in London, Uli was also visiting her, and the 3 of us had an amazing time. So it was great seeing him again too.
