and it’s this beautiful old house at 52 Bompas Street, Rosebank, near to Fournos bakery. we share it with an ad agency and a production company. very cool since it’s central but still has that working from home feeling, plus a big old oak tree and a pool.

ended up at kirstenbosch gardens for Emily’s birthday which coincided with the love jones concert. who’d have thought these guys could draw this kind of crowd? though the idyllic setting may have something to do with it.

it was Amo’s birthday yesterday and Ruth came up with this idea that we should make her work for her presents. or at least run around a bit. so we each got her a gift and wrapped it and her first gift was a clue, which hinted at the next person’s desk where the gift would be hidden. with each gift was another clue, so she had to hop from desk to desk. we followed her around like a crowd of paparazzi, and every time she found a gift we all yelled YAY and it was good times. here are some pics:

jason walked in with half a box filled with Lindt balls after lunch. it sent amo into a shrieking fit, so dan poured them all over her. happy times.
The balls destroy Dan’s Low GI resolve.
amo, quite literally hysterical with joy. thanks to our pals at JMC.

it was marcia’s birthday today, so we ate hot dogs and chocolate cake and sang to her.
We talked about name-changes and going to see the Boks parade in their World Cup Victory celebrations. and here is a photo of Dan having his cake and eating it.
