ONE side of our offices on the Cape Town Foreshore used to look over the freeway to the harbour beyond. We used to be able to see ships coming and going, little tugs pulling huge tankers and floating palaces such as the Queen Mary gliding gracefully on the waves. But no more. The international convention centre has expanded, putting an oblong of concrete and glass directly in our line of vision. A new hospital has been built right next to it too, so that’s pretty much that. One group of people on our floor would barely have looked up even had the view never been obscured – they’re simply too busy. They’re a small team who work hard to produce YOU’s spin-off magazines and one of their latest ones is quite a…

SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION I’VE found there’s magic in the little word “thanks”. We all thrive on appreciation, just as flowers need showers. The sweating fruit vendor on the hot railway-station platform, the harassed grocery packer at the supermarket, the stern sister at the clinic – they can all do with a verbal pat on the back. From having serious expressions, their faces suddenly light up. And so does my own. That’s the magic of it! And a big thanks to YOU for a magic magazine – most informative and absorbing. FERN, BOTHASIG…

PAID A PITTANCE I’ve just read the article about Sylvia Mahlangu’s fight for compensation after her mother, a domestic worker, fell into her employer’s pool and drowned (YOU, 28 November). It’s such a sad story. I think Sylvia should become a lawyer! Besides this, what struck me was what Maria Mahlangu was being paid! Her salary was R2 500. Is this per month for a day starting at 7am and ending after supper? Should Sylvia not claim back pay for her mother being underpaid, perhaps? KATHLEEN, EMAIL BLOWING BONUSES Many South Africans find it difficult to sit at home when they have bonus money in their pocket. They’d rather go on shopping sprees and buy things they really don’t need. Then there are those who drink their bonus down to the last cent. Such men and women enter…

in brief

People called out to me all night when I dressed as my favourite magazine for Halloween. My difficulties included trying to carry a drink in each hand through a crowd, barely making it through a doorway and not being able to sit down. Positives included making people laugh, running around the dance-floor as a bopping magazine and just being YOU! BIG YOU FAN, EMAIL I love the new Noot vir Noot. Emo Adams is brilliant. The new format is great as well. I miss the band and Johan Stemmet of course, but the change is refreshing. TRA-LA-LA, SMS My granddaughter is five. I file all YOU’s educational and kids’ games pages in a flip file. She does the colouring in now and will do the other puzzles when she’s a bit older. I copy…

Princes Harry and William are two different people, both with wives and families (YOU, 7 November). It would be foolish to expect everyone to get on and agree on child-rearing and family life. They have different goals and family dynamics. It might be true that William cautioned his brother about his choice of wife but if Harry loves Meghan why should that matter? The consequences were clear with Charles and Diana. Him not being in love with her and marrying for the sake of the family – it usually ends badly. It’s been refreshing and delightful to see Harry and Meghan holding hands in many of the photos we’ve seen. They’re warm and sincere in their dealings with people of all walks of life. They’re now parents, so both their wishes and…
