January is pretty much us and the month of love almost upon us! What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day? Girls do you realize that as this is a leap year you are allowed and encouraged to take the leap and ask your man to marry you? I had two offers of marriage today but I think they were only because they both need someone to cook for them and they thought I owned the Lollipop Lounge! Poor boys, Lollipops Caters to your other needs! This month my baby girl, Indulgence, celebrates her 6th birthday! She should have started grade 1 primary school with all the other kids this year but I decided that she is constantly learning in the school of life and for this beautiful girl a little bit more home schooling is not going to be a bad thing, plus the text books are a whole bunch cheaper and we won’t mention the uniforms!! Come celebrate with us! Come raise your glass and toast my beautiful non-furry girl on the 25th of February from 2pm to 5pm! There will be loads of pink bubbly on ice and cupcakes galore to feast upon and best of all this is we are not charging you one cent to come to our little party! Just pop in and have a glass with us! Email me to say if you are coming so I know how many bottles of bubbly to buy and how many cupcakes to ice!
So what else is happening @ Indulgence this month of love:
This month’s AuthorTalk is a gala affair with not one but two authors on February 11th. This is THE month of the year that we hand over all the books that you guys have helped us collect over the past 12 months. Heading up our fabulous double bill is Charmaine Pauls, a South African girl living in Chile who has just published her first book. Charmaine is taking time to make her debut appearance during her fleeting trip to South Africa. She will followed by the never short of controversy, David Bullard who really needs no further introduction as far as I am concerned! For this event we are doing things a little differently so please take note of the following: There will be a two course plated set menu @ R75 per head. There will of course be a choice of red meat, white meat or vegetarian so no one will go hungry followed by a delicious desert as only Indulgence can! Serving lunch from 12h30 BOOKINGS BOOKINGS BOOKINGS only please!
Both authors will have books on sale and of course they will quite happily sign them for you. I will see if I can persuade them to each give us one to hand out in the draw! As far as Animals In Distress is concerned please bring along whatever you can that will help an animal in distress from blankets, food, toys, kennels etc! They are happy to take anything that we can give them that will help our furry friends! Amiga will hand over her pocket money that was raised from her birthday party in Decembe. And then of course this is a brand new year for collecting books so remember as always to bring along your two books, one to swap and one to donate as we begin collecting a whole new year of books for Amiga’s charity of choice!

“I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
We were alone and I was singing this song for you” 1972 The Carpenters
Unfortunately Valentine’s Day falls during the week this y
ear so the best I can offer you on the actual day is my love! Hahaha, on the other hand of you feel like going out to breakfast we will open at 7.30am so you can bring your girlfriend, wife or secretary for a quickie breakfast on the way to work. Nothing says I love you better than crispy bacon and scrambled eggs! We have a very romantic range of heart shaped cakes, cupcakes, heart-shaped biscuits, chocolate roses and gingerbread men with big hearts if you fancy sending some to the office, the school or your home! Make my life a tad easier and order early so we can avoid disappointing anyone
! (by the way I love flowers, Lindt chocolate, Dune perfume and like most women gold, silver and diamonds work fabulously )
