I've been taking it seriously so far and have had treats every day since Saturday :)
A work friend (from old company) and I have birthdays in this week so we met for a birthday brunch on Saturday. We are the same personality profile (ESTJ) and it was freaky to realise just how alike we are, especially since we don't see each other as often as we used to.
Yesterday was my official family birthday lunch. We were going to go to Perron (Mexican) but Sunday afternoon in Illovo feels far too trendy for a family, so I googled and Mama Mexicana came up. I was thrilled because I've wanted to go there for a long time. I think I even mentioned it on the blog.
The city is one of my happy places. We just started driving onto Fox Street and already I was beaming from ear to ear. I feel like I got a 2 for the price of 1 deal because we got to walk around Arts on Main for a bit too (while we waited for a table to clear) and then had a very delicious Mexican meal. I'm definitely going back.
The whole area was buzzing and there's not a lot of official parking, of course, but PLENTY of car guards who watch your car very nicely for R10.
3 of the 4 of us loved our meals; K burst out crying after trying about 3 bites. It's useless talking to her when she's so upset so tonight I asked her more about it and she said "the food was too messy". We decided that WHEN we go back, I'll feed her something at home first.
The light inside Mama Mexicana was amazing...... seriously...I do believe anything can look good in the right light. Exhibit A...
And then today, I went to have a medi-heel treatment.
I don't like pedicures because I don't like to have people touching my feet BUT I've discovered I don't mind firm touches to my feet. I've been for 3 treatments at Camelot so far and I LOVE my smooth heels (and feet) afterwards. Seriously, if you even have a bit of dry feet/ heels, go get one done. Only R70!
I have nothing planned for tomorrow or Wednesday, but let's see :)
How was the start of August for you?
PS Louisa, are you enjoying sleeping in? It's Birthday Week for Louisa and Marleen too!
