Yesterday I drove down to PE to collect some work stuff and, seeing as I was going anyway; I decided to invite two friends along for the ride. We had a wonderful day wandering around a proper shopping mall. Grahamstown doesn’t have one. We’re a small town! There’s nothing quite so good as hanging out with your girlfriends!
I don’t have any photos of my haul-I forgot to take them but I can tell you what I got. A new duvet cover to replace the one that J has had since forever. It’s been patched and re-patched and it’ just very old now. I also found some nice brown low-heel boots. I’ve been looking for a pair for ages! I’ll be wearing them to the Barn Dance thing in a few weeks time (and probably before that too!). I also picked up a few kitchen things. A draw tidy in bright funky colours and two glass bottles with hinged stoppers for olive oil and stuff. J scored a nice grey hoodie that was on sale. I also managed to pick up my “Secret Post Club” gift-I must post it tomorrow…
I brought home some sushi, and this time there was no untimely slamming on of brakes so it all stayed inside the container. Where it was supposed to be. Delicious. A colleague actually sent me a list of sushi restaurants in Cape Town and when they have their specials on. So I will definitely be checking those out when I’m down there! Hopefully in the next two weeks or so! Anyone want to join me? Leave a comment!*
Today I make ice cream. I have a really easy and tasty looking basic recipe and I’ll spruce it up a little to make it more exciting. Watch this space!
OH! And I finally finished the Twilight books. Meh. They were ok. I got the feeling with the 3rd one that it was written under a lot of pressure. I wasn’t nearly as good as the others and there didn’t seem to really be much of a direction to the storyline. So, that’s what I thought of that.
That’s all for now!
*Unless you’re like, really creepy.
