1. One little moody 2 year old can spoil Valentines day for a whole family.
2. Even "Stopayne" will not help.
3. All good intentions to bake heart shaped cupcakes go out of the window in above circumstances.
4. You can book and even go for a cut, colour and blow wave and return without the last one due to one of our infamous power cuts. My hairdresser can do wonders with towel dried hair and wax.
5. Our city can actually have a mid day highs of 42 degrees Celsius ( 107,6 F). I promised, measured on my car when we parked at the party. When we left at 5:15 the afternoon it was still 36 degrees C (96,8 F)
6. After a hot and busy day like that 4 adults and 6 kids can be so tired that even a very exciting game of rugby will not keep your interest for long.
7. In hot weather like this take away pizza is a good substitute for a braai, even if your hubby is the braai king.
8. A lot of people exercise in the gym on Sunday evenings. I really thought the gym would be empty.
9. You have to see Avatar on the big screen in 3D. It will not be the same in any other medium.
10. The best Indian food I have ever tasted is only 5km from home.
Idea stolen from Being Brazen
So, as you can guess, the weekend was tough, and tiring. Valentines schmellentines I say. I had such great intentions and plans. Hunter had such good intentions too - gave me my favorite addiction (Ferrero rocher). But yeah, let's just pretend Valentines day was on Friday night when we had the most excellent date night out ever.
I was dead tired after being up with Little man L for most of Thursday night (BTW I am now removing all mannekies(-see previous post- and associated Duplo from beds as soon as they are asleep. Up to now it is still working), but despite that we had a great time. We had dinner at Geet and oh my, it was simply stunning. We sat outside on the patio and ate the most escellent food accompanied by great service. Hunter and I agree that this is without a doubt the very best Indian food we have ever had, anywhere. We will certainly return when budget allows.
After dinner we saw Avatar - oh my, what an experience. Although the story line is really predictable and somewhat stereotype,it is the beauty of the scenenry and the creation of a whole new world that takes ones breath away. The 3D experience enhances this. We really enjoyed it.
