Howdy Cape Town. Thanks for having us. Your mountains are pretty and so are your streets, but damn your weather maker needs a talking to!

My friends Karenistic and Marina came with me to see and stay with our good friend Gina King in Cape Town this weekend that has just passed. We spent 4 glorious days with her pretty much eating as much bread as we could all possible fit into our faces. For some or other reason we were eating a lot of awesome delicious bread, bread between meals, before meals, after meals, it was like we were stocking up in case we got locked in a small cupboard or something – like there was any chance of that happening. But anyway it was so nice to be out and about with the girls. We went to so many cool places, saw so many friends, it was so awesome.

FRIENDS: I love you guys.

PLACES: Finally got to go to Field Office – nice sandwiches Willface. Lots of antique shops that were dotted all over the place. Church in town, have any of you been there? Wow what a special little place with special little things. We went to the new Blue Bird Garage market, that was sweet, it’s still pretty small, but it’ll get there. Michelle’s awesome exhibition, Kalk Bay, Vamp (obviously), Biscuit mill, Bird Cafe, lots of cool little shops and restaurants. Cape Town you have so many nice places to visit.

FOOD: Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeez we ate a crap load, I even got to eat boiled eggs and soldiers, haven’t had that masterpiece since I was a teen. When I came home all I could think about was getting into my stretchy pants and eating more lovely lovely bread. Last night I was even considering fashioning a loaf out of my bath soap I was craving it so much.


Oh man the ceramic teacup with the bird on the side made by Frauke Stegmann is my most favourite piece that I left behind. Balls. But I have these 2 teacups already, which I bought a while back, so don’t feel too sorry for me ha!

    the LOVE sandwich is amazing, i cross town at least three times a week for one! shame, if i am having a bad day, my mom will call me up and offer to go and fetch me one…that is the power of the love sandwich, a million things on it, but each unique flavour revealing themselves one at a time, its almost a science. now am salivating, off i go!
