Although mornings tend to be a little bit more stressful as we try to get everyone in the household ready for the day before we head out to town, it has been a while since we have had a nice weekend. By “nice”, I mean:
No (major) drama
No (major) episodes of rejection
No flying off the handle (i.e. me)
No inconsolable crying
In fact, we had a relatively peaceful Sunday for us as a family in a very long, long, long time!
We kept our day loose, and decided that we’ll head out for brunch at our all-time favourite haunt, Crepes & Co located at Sukhumvit Soi 12. Usually, midway through our breakfast or brunch session at Crepes & Co, we all will be feeling a little frenzied in trying to complete our meals and chasing after a hyper- active toddler.
This time round, our brunch session was actually pleasant. Very pleasant. I could even describe the entire session as being…wait for it… RELAXED!
We all had our meals in peace – Spud was eating really well, mostly feeding herself at the table, and Squirt sat in the stroller quietly (awake!) as BOTH parents enjoyed their meals together at the same time without drawing too much attention to ourselves. Spud, when not eating with us, got busy by helping herself to the small-ish play area near us or, trying to make friends with other diners.
We have always loved the food and atmosphere there, and we have spent many a morning for breakfast or for brunch, but none of our experience has been quite as nice and relaxing as what we had last Sunday. It felt surreal. (Even using the word “relaxing” sounds so surreal to me!)
We all had an unexpectedly nice Sunday.
What makes it even extra monumental for us is, that was likely to be the last time we set foot in there as the restaurant will be moving to a different venue by the end of this month.
It also occurred to me that I have never really taken a picture while we dined in the restaurant. So, here are a few nice parting shot of this place, accompanied with a heart-warming picture of my little family. We’ll miss this place, for sure.
