IF YOU consider how tough lock-down and social distancing have been on adults, it’s almost unimaginable to think how difficult it is for kids. And now, returning to school when the world has changed so dramatically can be scary and almost harder than being indoors all the time. Because the rules have changed so much. How different being at school is now. No more carefree running around on the playground or sharing and swopping snacks. No rolling around on the grass or sitting huddled together to keep warm against the cold. And no giving hugs to the pals you love most, no matter how much you’ve missed them. Yet being at school has so many benefits for children, even though the risk of a Covid-19 infection is high. Trying to get children as…

winning letter

MY LATE-NIGHT LOCKDOWN REFUGE LATE at night when I need to escape and find solace from the grips of being moored in our residential unit, I escape . . . I escape to the fourth floor of my residential building. I take time to inhale the glorious, cool evening air, which is ecstasy to my soul and my entire being. I listen to the sounds of birds’ arias in the trees. I feel like a voyeur as the windows of the neighbouring flats reveal families going about their nightly duties – having dinners with their loved ones. I wonder whether all my neighbours in my huge complex are coping with the lockdown and whether they’re living alone. It gives me a sense of comfort. As the saying goes, “We’re all in this together.” I…

I WONDER WHAT WILLIAM THINKS! The article telling Harry and Meghan’s side of the story was interesting (YOU, 13 August). Ever since the rift between Princes William and Harry started, we’ve had more opportunities to read about the latter’s side of the story than the former’s. As much as I’m looking forward to reading Finding Freedom, I’m also curious about William’s take. Surely the brothers aren’t planning to maintain their rift forever. Somehow Princess Diana’s sons need to swallow their pride and reach common ground. I look forward to William expressing his feelings about the rift. Perhaps only then will the brothers be reconciled. ABIGAIL LEDUBUKO, KONINGKRANTZ THE GIFT OF YOU I bought YOU every week from the time it was first published, but after a while I could no longer afford to. One day my daughter asked if…

battling bipolar

I can’t thank you enough for the article written by Vivian Ho (YOU, 13 August). Just like her I was diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder at the age of 19 six years ago. The only people who know are my husband and family. I’m embarrassed that I have this disease I have no control over. I have manic episodes that I can’t predict, which leave me in a depressive state and often, just like Vivian, I have the urge to end my life. I’m on medication to manage this so the episodes become less frequent but they never go away. When I read her essay, I had tears in my eyes as I know I’m not alone and it reminded me that I need to be stronger than my illness. So I…

in brief

What lovely pictures of Amelia Spencer and Greg Mallett celebrating their engagement (YOU, 13 August). Such a joy to look at some lovely people instead of all the doom and gloom right now. The Spencer girls are absolutely gorgeous. Their parents must be so proud of them. I wish the couple a great life together and lots of happiness. ANNE, SMS No guesses as to where the supposed R70 billion lent by the IMF will end up (YOU, 13 August). Into the trough it’ll go and all the little piggies will be snuffling around gobbling it all up. HOLE IN THE BUCKET, SMS Illegal cigarettes are made of junk. Many people now have hoarse coughs they never had before the ban. SYMPATHETIC, SMS New Zealand holds elections every three years. If we did the same we…
