Saturday Strollin’




With a long list of errands to run this Saturday, we planned to get an early start to avoid the Saturday morning rush. We needed to get a number of last minute items for our home renovation…(we at the point now where we realise that there is truth to the saying about renovating….. its double the initial cost& triple the time).

We hit Cape Town CBD fairly early however we roamed the streets with no sense of urgency really. I used to work in the CBD for a long while and i really miss the atmosphere and vibe… It also brings back great memories of the 2010 Soccer World cup when it felt like a month long party!

It was the first time Alyssa got to walk those streets and she had so much fun doing it. There was quite a chill in the air but we were dressed for the occasion.

We visited a few lighting shops and finally decided, ordered and paid for all the new light fixtures in our home but gosh it took a while…. and it doesnt help having a toddler running around the store opening boxes and swimming on the floor! Once the house is finally complete, I will share our choices with you.


My favourite purchase of the day was the ceramic girl from the Ceramic Factory in Kloof street. I eyed it at their stand at Decorex a few weeks ago and I vowed to get one!


The store has so many beautiful pieces, i need to go back!!!


We stopped for some refreshments at a little coffee shop on Long Street, which Alyssa did not want to leave



Our last task of the day was to buy Alyssa a ball, the dogs keep eating them! We easily found it at a toy store but on or way to the paypoint Alyssa screamed with enormous delight “Bar-ee” and we had no choice but to bring the purple dinosaur home too….


They’ve been inseperable ever since…

We got everything on our list for the day but arrived home way later than envisaged, but it was time well spent.

I need to take Alyssa back to the City… she had a ball today!

When last did you take a stroll in the City, I’d love to hear!
