Two weeks ago, I abruptly abandoned my blog and blogging generally.
This was not by design, but other activities on the go simply stopped allowing a spare moment. With the school holidays upon us, I had to spend some time in keeping grandkids amused. Various things kept busting around the house and needing repair. Vet visit for shots for the still-adoring Tabitha had to be slotted in, as well as taking a Much Better Half to the doctor for ‘flu to be sorted out. There were also the ins and outs of attending to Sister in Law and her broken hip.
Add to this further fine-tuning on Darx Circle, and then the discovery that for the two Tabika books new cover designs were just the beginning. It became necessary to reformat the entire innards of each, and adjust and reposition all the pictures. This time I have given them all a transparent layer, which makes them look even more professional than they did with the version from the actual publishers.
On one of our shell-seeking wanders on the beach, this wave was observed. I clicked and ran away at speed. For anyone on a surfboard it would have been a goodbye wave, indeed.
We went to gentler ones at Durban Ski-boat Club on Sunday, where the kids and I boogie-boarded. This is another club served with an eviction notice so that a Malaysian consortium can blot the landscape with high-rises. My opinion of them, the officials who are allowing it, and the whole administration, cannot be framed in language a gentleman would wish to utter.
