The end of the year (and a well-deserved two-week break!) is so, so close, but I can't help but be overwhelmed by the mountain of work that still needs to be finished before Friday...  Thankfully Will's little brother got married in Bloem this past weekend, creating the perfect little reboot opportunity for us before the final push to the holidays.  It.  Was.  Glorious.

The first item on the agenda was, of course, parkrun.  I haven't done a parkrun in way too long (we don't have a local parkrun in Kimberley) and doing one again just reminded me why I miss it so much.  I clocked a new solo parkrun PB (26:19) (and a Battle of the parkrun Mamas solo PB!) and couldn't be happier.  Loved it!

Item Number Two on the agenda was getting our healthy fix.  Kimberley (our new home town) has zero healthy take-out options, so getting a smoothie from Kauai during a Bloem trip is mandatory.  Miss K, J Bear and I shared a Chia Charge (our first ever chia encounter) and all loved it - Miss K even formally announced afterwards that it was unfortunately the last time that she would be sharing with me and Brother J - next time she wants her own.  Happy mama.

Then there was, of course, the wedding: Will and my first solo date in almost three years.  I know, I know.  Rest assured that we're going to make it happen a lot more often in future.  Fun times all around.

And now we're back home, ready to tackle that mountain of work.  Bring it!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. The year is almost done. I've got one day left before my leave starts. Good luck with all the work.

    1. Thanks so much, Johann - almost there...! Have a wonderful time of rest!

  2. What a fun little recharge before the holidays! Friday is so close!!! And that photo of you two is great! I love the background..so pretty! :)

    1. Thanks, Hailey! It really is amazing what a little change of scenery can do to refresh the mind. T minus two days 'till the holidays...!


I love hearing from you!
