Ok still in the spirit of "what happened??"... did I just miss winter?????.... Living under African skies, we certainly are blessed with glorious WEATHER, but NEVER have I experienced a winter like this...or NOT experienced a winter at all.....so I certainly haven't felt the bbbrrrrr this year!?? Every day has been a gift of sunshine, clear skies, and still air...so much so that I have had to revert back to my summer wardrobe, and abandon my much loved polo necks and scarves! Not that I'm complaining! Those who know me will testify to the fact that I wear jerseys in mid summer, but I'm proud to say that Trace managed to convince me not to go back to the car for my jersey when we stopped off at 'Vanille' today for a much needed tea...could I be aclimitising????.....bring on the Midlands!!!!
So back to 'Vanille' ...we had spent the morning at Home Affairs applying for id's and I think were both shocked at how quickly we got out of there! Reason to celebrate!!!...although I will admit to being absolutely devastated by the damage done to my newly applied french manicure...UGHHH, by the finger printing...sob! Trace had tears streaming down her face from laughter, ...round about the time I was desperately attempting to selvedge it by shoving my hand into a VERY VINTAGE looking enamel bowl (which we actually stopped to admire mid crisis!! lol!!) of pink....heave...goo and slime...vomit! Trace of course thought it was the ideal photo opportunity, but only a girlfriend with falsies for nails will relate to my utter despair and devastation. So off to 'Vanillle' which is just sooo up our shabby chic alley's. We also visited the new gallery called "FAT TUESDAY"...how devine! Please do pop in there if you're ever in the area - it is SO so worth a visit.
