Every quarter Methodist Ministers get a 'weekend off'. This means from Friday through to Monday inclusive. Given that I preach every weekend and generally work Saturdays, this is a good thing.
This weekend was my first weekend off in my new station. I cheated and worked on Friday, a little. But we (my husband and my two sons and I) spent Friday night to Sunday afternoon in Simons Town. We rented a cottage overlooking the calm, deep blue sea and totally chilled. We walked and explored and saw penguins in the wild. We played bridge and watched cricket on the cottage DSTV. And we read books and talked and got back in touch with each other. It was great!
And I think that I have fallen in love with Cape Town.
