|Kathy and I at the Antibes market - photo taken by my dad. Nice to see a pic with me in it for a change.|
Its been more than a month since I've last posted a blog! When I look back now, it feels like a crazy kaleidoscopic blur. Three weeks of bone crunchingly hard work, a few wild nights to celebrate the end of the charter, my Dad and step Mom coming to France, followed by loads of family gatherings and tourist activities; then jumping on a plane to come home after 4 months and 10 days!
Coming home felt totally surreal too and has been a week of reveling in my husband, home, garden, cat, friends, family and Cape Town. Talk about sensory overload.
Today, is the first day in like six weeks where I have been able to sit at my laptop and just take time to reply to mails, look through my photos and start thinking about what comes next. Deep breathe... there is so much to do and catch up on now and I feel like I just need a few more days to get my bearings.
I also have so much I still haven't shared with you. So today I'm just going to stay in the past a bit longer and share a lovely mornings adventure in Antibes with my Dad, step Mom and brother.
|Kathy got conned by a charming Frenchman into buying a few kilos of olives and tapendades - which to our amazement we managed to finish in a few days! The sundried tomato paste was unbelievable!|
|I am going to miss the fantastic quality and flavour of the berries and tomatoes...|
|My Dad ended up making friends with the Chef and the two of them were clowning around for the rest of the meal. In case you don't recognise it, that's an egg shell on his nose!|
|My crepe filled with cheese, an egg in the middle, grilled peppers, aubergine and fresh basil. Soooooo good.|
