Saturday 23 January 2016 : Today was our first Scrap Addicts date and I was soooo excited to be with "my girls" for the first time this year.  I got up early and packed what I needed to (I still had my album and pages in my bag from the last time I scrapped with Ali in late December) ... This was as a result of me having that long bath last night!!!!  

We had a stunning day ~ interspersed with the stress of Leonie losing her keys sometime between arriving at Ali's house on Friday night and us looking for them on Saturday morning ... with no luck.

We gave Mrs Olivier a call to check that she was scrapbooking "with us" ... and she was!!!!  We had a lovely chat with her about our trip in March to visit her.   I can't wait as it is about 25 years since I was last in Cape Town.

Once Linda arrived we had coffee and it was present time ...I wrapped Ali's gift beautifully ... inside was a blender which she is going to keep at her office and a bird colouring in-book.

I got this travel purse and beads from Linda ... The purse will go to good use when we travel to New Zealand later this year.

Later in the day ... after Leonie's nephew delivered her spare keys she blessed Ali and I will Le Creuset baking dishes ...

We decided to pop across the road to Urban Angel for lunch ... Brilliant idea!!!!  Their food is incredibly well presented and delicious!!!

We all ordered freshly squeezed juices ...
Mine was a beetroot and orange ... which was awesome!!!!
Leonie had a mellow yellow ... which had turmeric in it.
Ali and Linda had a Quencher ... which had carrot and orange.

Our lunch was so pretty that I had to take photos!!!

Ali had a starter portion of calamari and halloumi ...
 I had a roasted veg and halloumi sandwich.
 Linda and Leonie had butter chicken curry ... They both took doggy bags as the meal was so big.
This is me savouring my juice!!!


  1. That food looks fabulous...makes me hungry.

  2. I cannot wait to see the purse! :)

  3. Glad to see you looking so happy. And what a delicious lunch!
