The week of Dec 30, 2019 – Jan 5, 2020
New Year’s Eve…
Monday: Susan joined mom and I for lunch with Martin and Angela. Martin introduced us to False Bay Yacht Club restaurant. Nice meal and a great venue. Martin took us on a short drive along Red Hill and back via a Welcome Glen back road that I didn’t know of. Dropped mom off, grocery shopping for braai. Lazy evening at Susan’s.
Tuesday: Up early to cook a gammon. Finished reading Private by James Patterson. Really nice NYE braai at Susan’s with Barbs, Paul, Brian, Di, Heidi, Gareth, Lindsay, their boys, Ken and Di. Got to bed only about 2am.
It didn’t keep my attention. Chapters are two or three pages long and some are written in the first person of Jack, and other chapters in the second person of Justine. I found that constant change jarring.
Wednesday: New Year’s Day. Slow start to the day. Gammon lunch with mom at mine. Afternoon nap. Quick stop at Susan’s for leftovers supper. Watched Homeland.
Thursday: Gym session with Johnny. First Thursdays event with Susan. Browsed around the art galleries of Church Street. Then dinner at Cape Town Fish Market at the Waterfront, followed by dessert at Balduccis.
Friday: Very pleasant day of repairing a chair of Susan’s, and replacing the delapidated refuse aperture door of my flat, built earlier in the year. Helped mom with some chores, watched Homeland.
Saturday: Rondebosch Common Park Run. Shoelace shopping – unbelievably a difficult thing. Grocery shopping, chores. Afternoon spent watching Netflix movies with Susan. Thai dinner at Erowan, Wynberg.
Sunday: Late lie in. Susan joined mom and I for lunch at Panama Jack’s. Drive up Signal Hill, grocery shopping for mom. End of leave chores.
My work week was divided into: Leave 80%; Holiday 20%.
