I can not believe I almost forgot!
A couple of weeks ago we met Shebeeliciousness herself for lunch at Cubana in Cedar Square, since she’s back in Joburg and all.
Well, it start out as a lunch- but we only made our way home more than 6 hours later! We had such an awesome productive lunch it was fantastic.
We have got to start following up on all our ideas girl!
This weekend past was relatively restful compared to some of our weekends.
On Saturday morning we went looking for dancing shoes and I now am the proud owner of an exquisite pair of black strappy Latin dancing shoes and a pink bag to keep them in since I can’t wear them anywhere except on the dancefloor. The shop we found them in was amazingly reasonable, so we have now ordered a pair of ballroom dancing shoes too!
So spoilt me!!
At the same little shopping centre where we found the dancing shoes- we found a baking shop, and they had the most amazing cupcake goodies! I now have black, gold and silver cupcake cups- and a new recipe book!
I have several baking books now…
I also bought several ready-made decorations because they were simply irresistible… Like these shocking pink high-heel shoes! I bought a box of black shoes with pink roses on them too.
And my friend Stef came to visit! Some of you may know her as Sweets, whose blog is sadly currently in hibernation. It was so cool to see her again. We decided to have an impromptu braai before parting ways on Saturday evening.
On Sunday, the choir that my sweet Glugster sings with had a performance at a church in Blairgowrie and when he got back we went off to a friend of mine for her birthday brunch. I baked her some red velvet cupcakes and iced them with cream cheese frosting, with a plastic icing high-heel shoe on top of each one. They looked very pretty- but I bought a different type of cream cheese to the one I usually buy and the frosting wasn’t as white as I like it to be.Char was VERY chuffed with her birthday cupcakes!
After we got home from the brunch, I had to knuckle down and finish my ADHASA Parents Seminar presentation as I had to submit it today so that the organisers can start making the seminar CDs. I have a 15 minute slot at the seminar this Saturday- and I’ve been asking them for a chance to speak for a looong time! I am very excited about it. I love public speaking, and its something I’m good at- and it took me literally all afternoon to do it but its finished. By 10:30PM I had 2664 words, and my reading it took me just under 14 minutes. I submitted it this morning- after increasing it to 2730 words after some quick editing. I heard back from them soon after I mailed it and they love it! I am stoked at how well its already been received.
After the seminar I’ll post it here for anyone who would like to read it.
