Had book club at our house last night! P went to visit his friend in Pretoria and poor Stacey had to stay at home and study while we had fun! It was cold so I decided to go the comfort food route and made a stunning macaroni & cheese! Served with a winter salad and warm Italian bread! There was LOTS of wine, plenty of laughs ... and the odd book was taken! Ha! It's always a fun evening! It was especially good for me because I won the "stokvel" (each book club member contributes money and each month a different member receives the money collected). I was quite thrilled! I have been eyeing a beautiful red coat, but it is quite expensive and I couldn't justify spending so much on a coat. I decided that if I won "stokvel" this month, I would use the money to buy my coat - I am going shopping after work! YEHA!
Stacey is off to Bloemfontein today for a week - so I get an afternoon off work - have to take her to the airport! So it's another reason to be smiling! And of course its the week-end Baby! Hope you all have a good one - to my American friends - "Happy Independence Day!" I will be thinking of all of you!
