Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


…one more sleep till we escape to the bush with friends. 3 hours in the car, and we will be hidden away in the Eastern Cape, hopefully getting pampered and well taken care of, while we relax and catch up. Rather looking forward to the trip, and it’s going to be a good practice run for Thandi for our trip to the Serengeti! Let’s hope she enjoys it!

It’s been a busy few days, there has been some planning, some gifting (lots of birthdays coming up) and some running (yay!). Tuesday evening was just perfect, so as I got home I said to Charlie I’d meet him and Thandi at the local beach. I pulled on my tackies, hit the road, and really, really enjoyed the moment. It felt good to stretch the legs, work up a bit of a sweat (okay a lot of a sweat) and get some fresh air. I found them down on the beach, Thandi was completely in her element, running in the waves, digging in the sand, making mud pies. It was absolutely perfect down at the beach, and filled with people and children, and happiness. It was hard to drag ourselves away! What magic moments are made of!

Yesterday was a theatre day, followed by a bit of a run around, before I hit the rooms again. In the evening we tried the revamped organic eatery with my namesake, and had a very nice evening! The food was good (camembert and blueberry tart, rack of lamb with roasted veggies and creme brulee), the wine delicious (De Grendel Rubaiyat – magic, if you can find it…) and it was good to catch up. Today after work I’m hoping to get another run in, then its to pack for the weekend! Yay!
