We are back to the famous Load Shedding. The power utility is once again unable to cope, is running out of fuel and capacity, and has equipment breaking down faster than they can repair it. So they go back to their tried and trusted solution: if you have trouble in supplying electricity then simply stop doing it.
At the moment we are on a daily session of two hours of blackout. I fear they are gearing up to extend this. Crass mismanagement, graft, incompetence — you name it.
On a lighter side, I am becoming light-headed already. Wads of hair are separating themselves from my scalp. That, after only one treatment! No doubt at all, I will soon be giving a good billiard-ball imitation.
I’m cool about that, particularly as within a year or so it should return to former glory, but what I am extremely miffed about is the impending loss of my characteristic moustache. I’ve had it since early twenties and have become very attached to it. The thought of becoming detached horrifies me. I never dreamed there would be a fall-out between us.
I have had a pretty active day, but more of that later.
