A few lessons learnt this holiday

  • There is no substitute for quality time with really good friends.
  • I will never entirely get over Cape Town.
  • A long stretch of relaxing "us time" at the end of the year is the best possible thing I could wish for TSC and me.
  • My mom is the most amazing present-giver I know.
  • My brother and I have not yet outgrown the sibling arguments.
  • Our cats appreciate us a lot more when we've been away for a bit.
  • Saving enough money to have a holiday that doesn't revolve around financial stress is a really good idea.
  • That said, there is a lot of fun stuff you can do without spending much money.
  • Spring cleaning is cathartic.
  • Leaving your veggie garden for five days may result in an untamed jungle developing (my baby marrows / zucchini are about six times the size one finds in grocery stores).
  • Good music makes a long car trip seem much shorter.
  • TSC and I are so blessed with the life we lead.

I too will never completely get over Cape Town.

Nothing better than time with your better half at the end of the year to recharge.

Great post.

And hope you made a yummy stirfy with those courgettes!

CT really does have a way of crawling into your heart. :-)

I want to see photos of these freakishly large veggies please?
