Charlie's Bird

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

Crazy week!

…ahead! It’s going to be busy and brutal! But in a good way I think!

I’m afraid I skipped my morning run this morning, I had had a late night and when the alarm went off at 04h30, I could not do it. My legs are still quite tired from my long runs over the weekend, so I thought I’d give it a go this evening.

So last night the preparation for the weekend’s festivities began in earnest. In case you’ve missed out, I host an annual Valentine’s dinner and it’s game on on Friday evening. I can’t give too much away on the blog, because too many of the guests read this, but its a big thing for me to really spoil my friends. Each year has a theme, and it gets to be quite fun with all the plotting and planning. We’ve had a Fairytale Feast, A Night in Paris, the Feast of Aphrodite, a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and then the first year was just a dinner. So it’s year 6 now, and it getting tougher to come up with new and executable ideas. Anyway, I think this year will be special, we will just have to see how it all pans out (and please Eskom, no load shedding on Friday night!) Fortunately I got quite a bit of baking done last night, with a bit more to follow today. Then it’s prepping an amuse bouche and the starter; on Thursday I am heading to a chef friend to help me prep my mains (I’d hate to try something and totally screw it up, with no back up plan!) And then on Friday we feast! Yay!

sounds too divine – wish I was one of your friends.

Instead on Friday evening I will be hosting a mini wine festival for a hundred people for which I have not done enough prep 😮
