Captured by Reigun and his Diana F+, from the birthday. It is still July. I have until the end of the month to talk about the birthday / accept birthday gifts / refer to the birthday / post pictures from the birthday.

So Rei and I finally moved into our new place on Saturday. Credit must be given to Rei for soldiering on after I collapsed in a teary pile on the floor saying “I can’t. I can’t, anymore.” The key observation to come out of the exercise is that moving muscles are very different to toning circuit muscles. It was worth it though as we are tres happy. Here are some pics (a bit messy, still some stuff lying around that shouldn’t be there, but you get the idea):

We’re collecting cushions for the lovely white couch banks. Today I bought Nunu from Anna, a designer I work with. She has her own knitted goods label called Wolmer.

so i made the most of the 2 day week 2 weeks ago, took leave and headed to struisbaai and arniston. a road trip in South Africa ain’t a road trip unless you stop at a farm stall. in this instance, the Moerse Farm Stall in Napier caught our eye. some snaps:
we found this very pretty ice cream truck in arniston, colour coordination a pure coincidence:
and ate a pint of prawns at the arniston hotel – highly recommended:
we also found the SunTouched Inn, which reads a bit like SunDouched Inn:
