Come on summer, come on!

If the weather we had this weekend was any indication of what our summer is going to be like, it’s going to be hot!

We had our company braai this Saturday out in Tokai and it was a very enjoyable event. Everyone brought their partners/spouses along and those that had kids brought them too. We had a great braai, with some very, very tasty lamb-chops and boerewors. The kids thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the pool (very refreshing after standing in-front of a hot fire in the sun), while some of the others played cricket and threw frisbees around.

Sunday we had my brother and his wife together with our parents over for lunch to celebrate my dad’s 63rd birthday this past week. The weather looked a bit daunting in the morning but it cleared up nicely in the afternoon. While the kids played outside on their new jungle gym we played some friendly Texas Hold’em. Why is it when you bring a new player into the game, they inevitably end up cleaning everyone out? πŸ™‚

All in all, a great weekend, nice and relaxing – now back to the grindstone for the week ahead!
