Life Lately || April 2016 – Even though it’s already May!

Guys, where is the time going? It’s May already! May! It’s feels like the older I get the quicker the days and months fly by…it makes me feel kinda anxious – like I’m going to run out of time! Since another month has passed I think it is time for another life lately post…

So April was good, real good, like so good I would like every month to be just like it!

The first 10 days were very chilled, we relaxed, caught up on housework and washing from our little Eurotrip the week before and we went to the Harry Potter Studio for my birthday! (Best gift EVER! Seriously! The only gift that could beat this would be being in an actual HP movie)

The last two weeks of April we went meat free (for the most part) which was pretty awesome, in the space of two weeks we ate meat maybe 4 times. It was good to just switch up our food routine a little and it forced us to try new things, Riaan made a kickass mushroom pasta and we made an awesome thai chickpea curry.

We spent a late Saturday afternoon browsing Borough Market and then headed off to Katzenjammers (the real reason we were out) for some German sausage, pretzels and a stein or two – what can I say, Munich left a mark on us!

The following Sunday was spent braaing and baking one of my fave chocolate cakes!

On the 27th we celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary (seriously can’t believe it’s already been 3 years!!!), it was such a good night filled with good food and good wine. We went for a wine tasting at The Humble Grape, followed by dinner at Côte Brasserie in Clapham.

We ended the month off with a cozy night in beside the fireplace with a bottle of red that we had liked at the tasting, an olive loaf and a cheese plate that still makes my mouth water just think about it!
