The Parkwood in the snow- 2011.

Snow 2011It was in August just two years ago that stunned Jozi residents experienced the rare occurrence of snowfall .
S.A Weather service records showed that it had only ever snowed in Johannesburg on 22 other days in the last 103 years!
The icy cold front as of yesterday is making me wonder if we might be experiencing snow more often?
The Parkwood Boutique Hotel – apres skiĀ  #jagermeister………..Sounds good to me !

 

Bunny ambush !

Bunny ambush !Easter doesn’t hold as much allure for me since I gave up chocolate and in fact all sugar in my diet but I am ever grateful for having some gorgeous God children to buy those exciting shiny Easter eggs for, so the experience lives on happily albeit vicariously through their chocolate smothered grins.
The Parkwood guests are another great reason for me to buy Easter related things. Nothing I love more than a few white rabbits dotted around the hotel bringing a smile to our guests.
Expect little Lindt bunnies accompanying breakfast !
Happy Easter weekend wishes to everyone!

Early Autumn ?

Autumn leaves

I love the change in seasons but have to say that as beautiful as it is to see all the tree’s in Johannesburg’s suburbs turning different shades of copper, gold and red….I am not the slightest bit excited about this early nip in the air !
Aside from a clear signal that winter is coming all too soon, Autumn comes with the annoying drone of leaf blowers and the endless rasping sound of raking.
The upside….cosy fire places, fluffy winter duvets and the delicious soups our chef is conjuring up this week at The Parkwood. Nothing like a good old fashioned butternut soup or chilli prawn soup to warm things up.
Another definite upside to impending winter is that a girl loves any opportunity to wear her boots the minute she can.
