Silly Season!

'Tis the season to be jolly I guess!  It all started this month - Christmas parties and late nights!  I had my book club party last night!  We went to a restaurant in Little Falls called "Cattle Baron".  Never been to that particular one before and it wasn't too bad!  I must say that I have had better food, but the company more than made up for it!  I was a bit disappointed as my rump steak was a bit tough and over-done, but my starter of camembert with cranberry jelly was do die for!  We swopped gifts (as well as lots of gossip!) and I was given a stunning pair of Betty Boop slippers!  I'll have to hide them from Alexandra - she's a Betty Boop fan!  It was so funny because Karen, who drew my name, filled my parcel with tiny silver snowflakes - I managed to sprinkle them ALL over the floor without realising that they were even there!

We're off to Bloemfontein for the week-end!  Tonight we're going to the 41'ers Christmas Party and tomorrow night we have Tania's 40th!  Niunia has booked us brunch at a place "Iewers Nice" in Reid Street - new place for us and it sounds divine! So,  it will be another week-end of festivities and fun!  Heaven help the waistline ... but I won't go down that road now ... we'll enjoy for now and deal with that one in January!

The last book I read just for the sake of reading a good book was 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath these days I am plowing my way through books for my degree and somehow the 'fun' has gone out of reading - but having just read your blog :) books, meal out and friends sounds the way forward!!
