The year is finally over, and what a year it was. My grandmother in Germany passed away at the age of 90, I had two operations within 30 days, spent 22 days in hospital and had a crazy busy year at work. The best things that happened last year was getting our puppy Lilo, and my niece being born.
I deserve a holiday!
December started with an impromptu visit to Pietermaritzburg to celebrate my hubby’s gran’s birthday.
We took a drive to Hilton in the Midlands. WOW. Absolutely incredible. It was misty and raining – just beautiful driving through the beautiful Midlands.
It was also the weekend that Madiba passed away, so we made a turn past The Capture Sight in Howick. It was incredible how many people had come to pay their respects and lay flowers.
Christmas with the family was so much fun as usual. My brother, his girlfriend and of course little Annabelle spent Christmas with us at my parents’ house. It was Annabelle’s first Christmas. Watching her open her presents was so cute!
This year we decided to drive to Cape Town instead of flying.
We took Lilo, our Boston Terrier with so that we can take her to the beach. It was hilarious watching her run like crazy in the dunes and splash in the waves. She thoroughly enjoyed herself.
Wine tasting in Franschhoek was incredible! Boschendal is amongst my favourite wines, so being able to go wine tasting at the Boschendal Wine Farm was great!
Delaire Graaf Estate was a very fancy experience, expensive wines but definitely an experience I’d suggest.
New Years was spent at the Protea Fire & Ice Hotel street party. Was an enjoyable event with lots of champagne going around 😉
Before we knew it, our holiday was over and we were heading back to Johannesburg and to start work for 2014.
We decided to rather start the IVF rather in February, so that we can spend January detoxing and adjusting our diet to more fertility friendly foods.
