The weekend report

The weekend was busy, as always, and as we are preparing for the holidays and with 3 days of work left, I wish I was on holiday already.
  • On Friday night Hunter and I had such a great night out for our 10th wedding anniversary. After we left a bit late (as with kids, the Princess bumped her head just before we had to leave), we had dinner at Beira Alta at Montecasino. I was so impressed with the waitress that asked if we were going to the 8 o clock show, and then saw to it that everything happened in time. The food was also stunning, to say the least. Then we went on to see Mamma mai! and my, was it great. It is so worth the money and effort to see. It was brilliant! If you have not seen it yet, just go.
  • On Saturday morning Hunter ran a few errands and then surprised me with a visit to the beauty salon for a facial and an eyebrow wax. My was I happy about that as I am so lazy to do my own brows. 
  • Saturday afternoon Hunter and the kids went to a birthday party in Jo'burg and I went to my hairdresser to make sure that I am not totally gray by the end of the holiday. 
  • Saturday night we were both tired and we sat and watched our wedding video. I really need to get it transferred onto DVD. It was great to relive the day.
  • Sunday morning Hunter let me sleep in a bit and then we did some of the shopping that we had to get done before the holiday.
  • After getting home and struggling to get the boys to nap,  Hunter went to lie down and I could see that he was not feeling well. Regardless, we went for a walk with the pups . Last night he was really sick, right through the night. The Princess and I watched Alvin and the chipmunks and I did some work on the camping stuff for the holiday.
  • This week I have a million things to do, or so it feels. Onto making those lists and getting the lat minute work things done too.


  1. I loved Mamma Mia...such a great show!
    Sounds like you had a perfect weekend!

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend!!

  3. So awesome that your man spoiled you like that. The romantic ones are hard to come by. Congratulations once again :)


    I loved Mamma Mia also

  5. wow! Way to go Hunter!! My hubby will (usually) willing watch the kids if I have something I have to do (meeting, appt, etc) but honestly, he has NEVER taken the kids anywhere alone or surprised me with any day to go take to myself.

    Oh well...I know I do get out more than him but its nice to know your work as a Mom/Wife is appreciated!

  6. I would love to see Mamma Mia! So jealous! I don't feel like I got that much done last weekend. I'll be playing catch up this week trying to make up for that.

  7. Congrats on the anniversary! Glad you had a good time!
    Good luck with the "places to see-things to do" last minute things! :D

  8. Wow, way to go Hunter!!! Very impressed - my DH would rather die that book tickets to Mamma Mia. SO sad that i missed it (again) this time round.

    Sounds like you had a jam-packed but very rewarding weekend.
