One of the nice things about having a baby (besides the actual baby) is that nine months of being so boring comes to an abrupt halt and is replaced with lots of tea time visits – so friends and family can meet the new addition to the family. This obviously also occasionally goes down with a bit of Champagne. No? Why not?
On one of those occasions, one of our friends brought a banting cake, all the way from La Cuccina in Hout Bay. It was an almond dark chocolate cake made with Xylitol and apparently contained zero carbs. I don’t know much about banting, but I must say the cake was delish. Maybe we will have a few banting cakes and muffins at the café..
Tea time is also an excuse to get out of my pyjamas – although I’m sure my friends wouldn’t mind me in PJs when visiting. I guess it’s nice to get into a dress that I can finally fit into. On that note, I’m loving shopping again and so adore my new Country Road stripe dress and belt!
Lacoste has fallen in love with Francesca – she even did a little oopsie in Franki’s room when we first arrived back from the hospital. At first we were worried about how she was going to take it, now that she would have to share our attention with someone else. But now she just gets onto the bed and nuzzles her way into the love triangle.
