Disassociated

As it was a 4 day work week it flew by, especially with work and life being so busy. Luckily little Panda is much better and that has been our primary stressor. On Friday Panda went to the vet for his end of meds check up and they have decided to keep him on antibiotics …

From Miracles to Nothing Special

Last Saturday I had a text message from our friend Mark asking what time he should come and collect Finn. It was only then that I realised we had completely forgotten that we were booked to go out for another Restaurant Week dinner to Gambas Seafood Bistro. I have been craving seafood for months and …

On the Block

I finally feel like I am comfortable being around other humans again, well, as comfortable as my introverted self ever gets. It may be just plague exhaustion (yes that is a real thing) or maybe I am being overly optimistic that the virus is mostly under control, but we are starting to entertain. Last weekend …

This week we have had some severe weather in SA. Last night it hailed, we even had thunder and lightening. We have had some torrential rain and even flooding down the coast where Lily lives. We lit a fire today as soon as we were out of bed as it is crazy cold. However, the …

The Birds and the Bees

One thing about living in Africa is that I am confronted with how privileged we are on a regular basis. Especially when something happens in one of the townships and you see people losing what little they have and then just getting on with life. There were 2 fires in our village this week. On …

A Trip Down Under

This week has felt very heavy emotionally. The news is full of flooding in multiple areas of the globe, raging fires, droughts both in South Africa as well as a lot of the rest of the world and of course there are still people dying from the pandemic. It gets hard to deal with and …
