Load Shedding and Lightning Strikes

South Africa is experiencing severe problems with power supply at the moment, so we are having power cuts for part of each day. In addition to that, our wifi router is not working after a lightning strike. So getting onto the internet is difficult. I am also in the throes of moving house. So things are in a muddle: 'deurmekaar' is a wonderful Afrikaans word for 'in a muddle', it translates literally as 'through each other'. So I'm going to take a break from blogging until next year some time, when I have everything lined up again - 'agtermekaar'.

Happy Christmas to those that celebrate it, and all the best in 2020. Thanks to everyone who read my blog through the year, and those that commented.

I'll go on reading blogs when I can, so I won't be disappearing altogether!

  4. Good luck with the move. Hope Jack learns the skill of retirement once you’ve got to your new/old home. Have a good silly season and speak in the New Year.

  11. My son & his wife spent Christmas on the western side of continental Africa. They sent fabulous photos of the villages and the animal they saw. Incredible place! Best wishes on your move. May you enjoy the new "normal" in 2020!
