Buddhas and Beaches

Last weekend I had a bit of cabin fever so Norm offered to take me out for a bite of lunch on Saturday. That meant getting out of my jimjams and putting on make-up for a change. https://www.instagram.com/p/CGKYZgFJoGY/ We had intended to go to one of our fave spots, Hout Bay Manor, but the wind …

Vintage Shadows

As lovely as a long weekend is, it seems to take a week to get your internal calendar back on track. Norm and I had decided to also try to get back on track with living a low carb life again after Easter and on my first day back at work Norm welcomed me home …
