Race Against Time


One again loadshed time approaches at speed, and the internet is going at all the rate of a lame slug.  ‘Highlights’ of the day have been going fifty miles across Death Valley to fetch our new garden labour force (Mondays only) and show him some of the ropes, then taking Much Better Half to the doctor.  She has to go for an Ultrasound tomorrow, again the other end of town.  Health! Taken for granted until it stops, and then the devil to pay.

The rest (lots of rest!) of the time I have been filled with a strong ambition to lie down and do nothing; and that is what I have done with much energy and dedication.

Now, I think I have run out of time to get a picture in here. Oh well. One word tells a thousand pictures, or something like that.

  1. Our load shedding starts in 10 minutes time. I am finding it very frustrating as the internet, Skype and phones aren’t working properly and I can’t work effectively.

    Truth, about health. It seems most of our time revolves around doctors appointments . . . and we’re fairly healthy!
