TAKING A BREAK? Not really, But enjoying every minute with my family.

Up at 5:30! Dropped P and K off at the course – tournament starts today.  S and I both collapsed back into bed and only woke up at 9:00 am!  Such a luxury.

But, what to do today?

Went with the flow.  Did a quick Google search and figured we would give Wellington a miss and rather opted for Fairview – they specialise in wine and cheese.  Fairview is just 4kms from Paarl.

First activity?  Cheese tasting!


GIVEAWAY: R15 bucks per person to get a taste (or three)

I’m not a massive cheese person but it was nice to taste a few different types – Fairview doesn’t have a problem if you go around a few times, so by the end of it, you should get the hang of it.  But in saying that, let’s just be honest and admit that S looked a bit green around the gills.


PERSONAL TASTE: My favourite, Fairview’s Blue Rock cheese

No time for wine tasting – I was the only driver today, so chose to have an early lunch at the Goatshed Restaurant – simple fare here, nothing too fancy like yesterday’s lunch at Reuben’s in Franschhoek, but still tasty bits and pieces.  S and I shared their meat platter selection.


MIGHTY MEAT: Yum, yum! Even ate the bread … not all of it!

Met the lovely ladies at HairMatix today – kindly taking over from Jeauval Fourways. Thank you Chantel Truter for taking me in at the last minute.


HAIR AFFAIR: Ladies at HairMatix – Chantel, who did my hair, is on my left.

All in all, a really good day – not too rushed, even had time to go to Paarl Mall and buy a few groceries.  But, before I sign off, as I write this blog, this is my view …..


This is my first blogging experience.
