Cruels & Joys of the new season

Crues & Joys of the new season / Pistols Republic - Interior & Lifestyle

Spring has started! Let’s celebrate with some lovely sunshine. This was in 2010 on one of the most beautiful beaches of Cape Town: Clifton 3, our favourite! Concerning sunshine, we get tons of it in our new apartment! As we live on the 9th floor with a balcony facing south, we can enjoy sunshine all day.

As you might have noticed, blog updates weren’t as regularly as I wished. Some weeks have been quite quiet. As everything has its reasons, so did I. We have just been very busy with our new apartment, which is getting more and more ‘almost finished’ (as we know interior is never finished, right?). Though we feel very much at home, which is extremely important.

Besides the home, other factors are on my mind too. I’m busy with my master thesis which asks a lot of my spare time, work which truly is a delight with all the new spring/summer collections and sports (are we going to be the champion this season again?).

So about spring, I have got enough running for me but what about you? Do you have any special plans? What do you like most about spring?


Birthday weekend

As I had a very nice birthday weekend, I just want to give a small update.  I had a very nice day on the day itself. Though I had to work, I had a pleasant time working. I received a lovely birthday gift and beautiful flowers from my employer and colleagues so it really felt like my birthday. The next day I visited my other job to bring a big apple pie and I had a drink with my sweet colleagues over there. They had already congratulated me as they’d sang a birthday song on my voicemail. In the evening my family came over and we had a very pleasant evening.

On sunday, me and the mister went to Amsterdam to enjoy our time together, do some shopping and some serious dining at Café de Klos. They have the best spare-ribs you can imagine, but I’m never able to empty my plate. Lucky for me, they give a doggybag when leaving, thus I could enjoy some spare-ribs later at home!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes and good time!
