The week of Dec 31, 2018 – Jan 6, 2019
On leave and doing touristy things with Byron …
Monday: New Year’s Eve. Gym session. Afternoon braai with Barbs and Paul at Barb’s place. Early hone and in bed before midnight.
Tuesday: A decent morning run on Sea Point promenade. Wasted the rest of the day watching NCIS episodes. Used Uber Eats for the first time. Pretty good, but poor selection, and difficult to give a tip using the app. Power outage in my neighborhood.
Wednesday: Gym session. After a three and a half month wait I finally have my renewed driver’s license. Clothes shopping at Canal Walk. Chores, a beer at Fat Harry’s. NCIS binge watching.
Thursday: Quite a busy day of driving around. Gym session, cut short. Grocery shopping. Admin. Took Wyness to the station, NCIS watching. Collected mom from the airport and took her home. Met Byron, Lindi and their boys. Good seeing then again and had a bit of a catch-up.
Friday: Finished reading Katerina by James Frey. Podcast walk around Tokai Park. NCIS watching. Took Byron and family to Jack Black brewery for drinks and food and to meet Lawrence. And then another stop at Forries before taking then home. A good afternoon.
Enjoyed it. Interesting literary style of short, sharp sentences. Very different to Bright Shiny Morning.
Saturday: A day out with Byron and family. A drive around the peninsula. Scratch Patch, Noordhoek farm village, Chapman’s peak, Dunes restaurant, Llandudno beach, drinks in Mouille Point, short walk along the promenade.
Sunday: Waterfront, gym session. Dropped off laundry, lunch at Quay 4 with Byron and family. Harbour boat trip on board the Jolly Roger. Drinks at the V&A Food Market. Goodfellas home.
Podcasts listened to this week: Beyond the Grid.
