I am doing bits and pieces like we always do...camping , hiking , fishing...beach etc. Been away for a weekend almost every month this year but have family coming to stay over here for December in the most beautiful city in the world , from land or space....

Holidays start in 10 days after which I am broke after paying out all that holiday pay and bonuses.

What are the rest of you doing.

Staying with family in Somerset West over Christmas/Boxing day then off to Cape St Francis for a week. Back early Jan then off to Hermanus for a few days. Planning to braai, fish, kayak, burn some skin and stay away from crowds and shops. I very badly need some rest, I am proper worn down. I have family from New Zealand (brother) coming to SA late in Jan and then will do the tourist things.

Working, have been working in Dec/Jan for the last 6 years. At least the office will be relatively quiet, a good time to catch up and empty the intray.

Will braai more than usual, we've got great weather in the Boland this time of year, so almost a sin to be inside in the evenings.

Down to Hout Bay in Cape Town, parents have a place down there and since my dad has retired he has spent a lot of time there. Sister lives over in Diep River too but don't plan to stay there :lol: Hopefully we'll miss the majority of the tourists, last year was the worst traffic I've ever seen in Hout Bay and the Cape.

I was also in Cape Town last year over the festive season. I was rough. Remember going to Mariners Wharf for lunch. Took us more than an hour to get into Hout Bay.
