DON’T be too complacent. Don’t let your guard down. This thing isn’t over. This is the message the powers that be are drumming into us as the hectic restrictions of hard lockdown become more of an anecdote. “Remember how we couldn’t exercise outside the house?” “Remember when booze was banned?” But as we’re seeing in countries around the globe, Covid-19 has a way of coming back to bite us – and this could be the case for years to come. Each week we carry stories that hit home how Covid-19 has infiltrated every aspect of life. In this issue we have Bok lock Lood de Jager missing his child’s birth because he was stuck in an airport. Joe Biden campaigning in a mask. A picture of Meghan helping kids – her face…

i can, i must and i will!

ELEVEN weeks ago, my world as I knew it came crashing down. My beloved husband, best friend and soulmate had passed away. He was diagnosed with Covid-19 and one week later he was gone. My big, strong hero had left this world and I was all alone. My immediate family live in New Zealand. Flights were grounded. I had to find the strength to cope alone. I found myself in total and utter despair, crying until I could hardly breathe. My heart was broken and I was left wishing I would die. I couldn’t imagine life without him. Outdoor globes needed replacing and the washing line cord had broken. The lawn needed to be mowed. I wanted and I needed to try and do these things on my own. And I did! I don’t know…

a new world of connection

I decided that I wanted to find love again. After being alone for five years and still working full time, I needed to take action. My friends and I – all widows – decided to enrol on a dating site during lockdown and it kept us entertained. We’ve made new friends here and in the UK. An American telephone number is definitely the biggest giveaway that scammers are about. We’ve become experts at spotting catfishing and all the different scams. You have to keep your feet firmly on the ground . I’ve been corresponding with a wonderful widower in the UK and I’m now hopefully going to go there at Christmas to meet him. I’m excited about meeting him at the airport. There are a lot of lonely people out there and social media…

in brief

Because of YOU magazine, the lockdown has sped by. My friend Cynthia and I have devoured every item of news in the mag. Our pets have also felt the lockdown. Cynthia’s fur-baby Max has decided he should keep up to date too. Here he is enjoying his YOU at his favourite reading spot on the carpet! LYN, PORT ALFRED Just a comment on the letter from Jutta about Diana, Charles and Camilla (YOU Say, 8 October), I think what you’re forgetting are little things called infidelity, cheating and broken trust. Just saying. LYDIA, SMS Why must we move from Newlands? It’s been for rugby for ages! IRATE, SMS In a reply to Grumble Guts Peter Bachtis (YOU Say, 8 October), I’ve had a back operation, two shoulder ops, a knee replacement and I regard myself as…

meghan hits her stride

ASEEMING lifetime ago Meghan was braving the miserable English weather, doing her bit on a rigid roster of royal duties. She smiled and waved when she needed to, she went on official visits. She pulled on her big-girl stockings, dropped her hemlines and pinned tiny hats to her glossy head. She navigated her way around a maze of palaces and castles while kings and queens of centuries past glowered from towering portraits in hallowed halls. Teatime was cucumber sandwiches and cream scones, Sunday lunch was roast meat with three veg and home was a renovated “cottage” in the grounds of Windsor Castle – a house she and her husband were pilloried for after spending millions renovating it to their taste. But, oh, how times have changed. It’s hard to believe it’s been only…
