A stormy weekend spent indoors

A storm raged this weekend guys. I woke up in the early hours of Saturday morning to a rumble that I thought could not actually be the rain, but it was. There was sever flooding in some parts of the peninsula and so many people suffered with damages to their property and people in the informal settlements lost their homes. The Vergelegen Mediclinic in Somerset West was so badly affected they had to evacuate patients. Whenever we have these bad Cape storms it always underscores my gratitude for the things the I have.

This weekend was so self indulgent. We stayed indoors and enjoyed delicious food, family time and we napped till we couldn't nap anymore.



Have you tried the premixed Indian cuisine spices from Woolies? I made the Butter Chicken one on Friday night, it was so divine.  The spices are so simple to use, all you need to add is the protein and cream and canned tomatoes. It took 25 minutes from start to finish. We also got the heat & eat Naan bread from Woolies.


Sophie is so entertaining. She has the most expressive face I've seen on a baby, and I'm not just saying that because she's my baby. She really does. This weekend she found her bliss playing with her feeding spoon, my t-shirt, her lion slipper & her paci. I don't know why we even bother to buy toys.



All three of us spent most of Saturday in bed :) It's not often that we get to spend so much time together, Regan often has gigs to get to and Sophie & I have our little routine of eating and sleeping and going out. Having all this time together has made me so impatient for Regan's summer leave to start. A whole 20 days to enjoy Cape Town and Sophie together! Magic!


 Hope you all had a great weekend too! Here's to a productive & rewarding week!
