In an ideal world, I would want to spend today mooching around the @bayharbourmarket, treating myself to some ice cream and a pair of Eighties earrings from the vintage jeweller; perhaps buying a bowl of paella to enjoy in the sunshine. In reality I get to spend the day in bed (again), but on the upside I have my Pugs snoozing in the sunshine next to me, a new blog post to keep busy with and breakfast in bed of buttery toast, smoked salmon and creamy scrambled eggs. And I don't even have to clean up the kitchen afterwards!

This time last week in full Indiana Jones regalia (if Harrison Ford's preference ran to Seventies curls and chilled Blanc de Noir) on the verandah of the spacious guesthouse at @drukmynietstud. Full of pastoral style, the house itself embodies true South African heritage whilst the uninterrupted views of the Winterhoek mountains - tipped a dusky pink at sundown - are enough to inspire many a fantasy of adventure. Even if you don't want to actually get any more adventurous than eating up DMN's fine selection of cheese for dinner. My full post on this uniquely introspective place that offers so much more than just accommodation will be up soon on my blog. In the meantime, cheers to the long weekend!
