AKA The perfect end to a weekend!

Laura sent a message on FB last week to a few of us organising an afternoon at Gilroys to celebrate Natasha’s birthday.  Because Lance was working, it was just me and the kids… and we all had a ball.

Gilroys is a brewery just outside Johannesburg, and is on the Ngwenya Glass premises in Honeydew.  Thankfully we booked because it was jam packed!!

I LOVED the place!! It was so awesome to sit outside (albeit freezing) on benches drinking beer, chatting, laughing, eating and listening to live old-school pub music.  And yes, I actually had a beer… an entire one… this is highly unusual for me as I can’t normally have more than a few sips… but that Traditional brew that I had was most awesome!!

The kids kept themselves busy with a soccer ball and in the play area (although Bradley declared it small and full of poo… not sure what kind of poo ‘cos I didn’t go check LOL!), and they went beading at one of the stores.

Gilroy himself is on the left, and had a few toasts every hour or so… such fun!! The fun included some poetry and generally a lot of laughs… with part of the entertainment being a haka which one of the patrons tried to copy… was too hilarious!

What a fabulous afternoon!! We’re definitely going back there 🙂 it was the perfect end to a weekend and just what I needed!
