It’s been a typical Cape Town spring week: hot, cold, rain, hot, windy, sweltering. But there’s something about summer that always makes me happy (even when I’m bitching about the heat). I guess it’s all that light. I’d never do well up North where it’s dark for so much of the time. Even our winters aren’t that bad and the gloom makes me sad.
But it’s been a pretty beautiful week down South.
Dinner With Friends
Went to dinner with two different friends on two different days. One is from high school and the other is the Cape Town Bestie. It was really good to get in some girly time and talk about everything going on in our lives. Boys, the summer, work, where we’ve been and where we’re headed too. I’m really an old woman in a young girl’s skin, so dinner and drinks is my ideal night out.
That said, I did hit the Harrington Street Party with Texx on Saturday. It was a really awesome vibe – I hope they do more of these street parties in the future. The wind made things pretty miserable (grit in your eyes, grit in your mouth, grit in your drinks), but the idea really worked well. I’m not a fan of drunk people in general, so I headed out before most of the big bands. I did end up having a late night Whatsapp chat with Lines of Escape, which made me feel a little less lonely. And lame.
Brunch with Dean
Like I’ve said in previous entries, even though Dean and I broke up, we’re still good friends and we’re still close. We went for brunch and it was great to just chat about what’s been going on in the past few weeks. It’s been a crazy whirlwind.
Finding my Feet
I’m still learning how to swim in this new world of mine. I’m still anxious, still nervous, still a little sad and always kinda lonely. But I’ve always loved a challenge, and this new phase of life is one of the biggest I’ve faced in a while. And I’m loving it.
