a lovely, lovely, time in cape town – the work bit is (almost) over so we’ve let who-we-are-in-RL have a sleep because she did Very Well giving speeches, judging (in a good way) and everything these past few days….(and the Ladies Brunch was very moving, so glad we were asked to participate).
so we took the grown-up camera and headed out into Cape Town (which is an Extremely Chilled of a Place to be) and enjoyed the scent of orange blossom, jasmine and some identified smokey smell which could well be the braai (bar-b-que, darlings).
this is where we’re staying (right? DIVINE!).
now this is Very Important – it’s the Bookery and it does really good things here in South Africa and yes, we stopped by and had a chat and a think about how to write about them perhaps for a publication…. *putsthinkingfaceon*
the Book Lounge is nearby and we bought a slim volume of fiction (more on that later) and enjoyed a small conversation with the excellent sales staff.
this is the outside of the Book Lounge.
and these are photographs we took this morning before it got hot (because, of course, this is Summer below the Equator – isn’t that glorious?) and now we rest a little while before getting ready for the Bookmarks party which we’ve heard is Deeply glamorous (a tiny bit debauched but we’ll have escaped in an Uber long before t h a t, love ;-)
