Gillooly's farm

Gillooly’s farm.

We went to gilooly’s on a Tuesday, which meant that we practically had the whole place to ourselves.
Mrs sippi blue restaurant just by the lake has a bluesy feel to it, they played quiet music and we ate our lunch looking at the ducks play in the water, unfortunately outside was too windy as this was in august.
The food was ok, nothing to write home about, I had nachos, which were sadly not the original nachos chips I like but the doritos impersonation.

Little one had chips and a hotdog, the chips came in a little basket, loads of them, we later fed what was left of them to the ducks, who seemed awfully hungry.
We then went off into the park, which is well maintained and well equipped and burnt off the food on the swings, slides and climbing thingies.
A few people walked their dogs, others just sat quietly, the set up was just amazing.
Gillooly’s farm is quite ideal for family picnics, a lover’s stroll or simply a walk in the park.

Gillooly’s farm is open daily and entrance is free.

The price of kinderjoy

Dynamite comes in small packages.

I'm not an ardent fun myself but my 5year old believes that the sun sets and rises out of kinderjoy, i have to say, the toys are very sweet, the latest addition to her collection was a floating paper bunny, too cute.
The price of one is  usually +-R6.99, give or take a few cents at most department stores, ofcourse the garage 24hr convenience shops make a killing by pricing them close to +-R14 each, which is absolutely ridiculous but a small price to pay for all the joy it brings to little hearts. :)

magalies meander

Magaliesburg meander has always fascinated me, I don’t know why, I mean it’s a beautiful stretch of road no doubt but it’s always led me on a personal trip in my mind(not that I ever need any push really, dreamer that I am)
I got a chance to stop over during the holiday season with my partner and must say I enjoyed brunching under the eaves and lunching on a lovely slope and waffles at a little joint, can’t say much about the waffles but it felt homily and homily is always good, especially over Christmas.
But I’m getting ahead of myself, why don’t I start at the beginning and tell you all about it.

Magaliesburg restaurant.:
My partner and I both love discovering new places, especially new places that are cosy and ensconced away along a beautiful stretch of road on a cloudy evening in parts of the cities where one can easily make out the stars and the moon is clearly visible.
I had a latte and we shared a waffle, (we are trying to find the best waffle place by elimination method) I can’t say that we will be eating waffles at magalieburg restaurant when in the vicinity again but I do know that I would go back for the feel and the atmosphere.
A small restaurant, I unfortunately did not taste their food but the prices looked good and they had some great stuff on the menu.
