IT’S suspended. Then it’s back. Then we have a respite from 6am to 9am (gee, thanks!) Then it’s going to end on Monday morning. Actually, sorry – it’s been pushed to Thursday. Because there are diesel shortages! The coal is wet! Medupi is in the poopie again! One of the only good things about loadshedding is we’re all in the same boat. Up the creek without a paddle. We were bemoaning it at the office today after a full weekend of rolling blackouts. One of us got stuck in her garage because she couldn’t get the manual device on the door to work. Another had a sleepless night because of mosquitoes (no fan to blow them away). Yet another forgot to download her show and had nothing to do when darkness was…

LEARN FROM LIFE’S KNOCKS D-DAY for matriculants has come and gone. Nerves evidently started to kick in as some helplines were inundated with calls from distressed learners that same day. After reading about all the trials and the harshness life threw at some, I immediately thought about what American author Ernest Hemingway once said: “The world breaks everyone, and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” Life is hard, that’s clear. Everyone struggles and even those who seem to be cruising have experienced hardship somewhere. Obviously, some matriculants have taken advantage of the challenges. They realise that when they’re in the darkest places they’ll find the brightest light. Setbacks and failures don’t have to break you. They make you strong. The harder the knocks you go through in life, the more you learn.…

in brief

If you want to change the world, start with the person in the mirror. What a wonderful world it would be! ROSIE ROBERTS, EMAIL Thank you for an awesome magazine! I’m attaching a photo of my gorgeous kitty, Zoey, who won’t let anyone near “her” copy of YOU! JUANITA, EMAIL I couldn’t agree more with Anne about rude licensing officials (YOU Say, 30 January). She could have been referring to my local licensing department in Gauteng! A place to avoid. SHARON, EDENVALE I have to share this with YOU: at my local shop honey and “mustered” chicken sosaties were on offer. MARINA, SMS I was grocery shopping this morning and making a conscious effort to buy Proudly South African items. To my astonishment Colgate toothpaste is a product of India, Dove soap is made in Germany and ordinary…

love, sex and snoring

When I first penned my letter about my spouse and I enjoying sex in our sixties (YOU Say, 31 October 2019) I didn’t expect the minor debate and response from other readers that ensued. To the uninitiated, I wrote the letter not to brag about our love-life but because a colleague in her forties had asked me if my spouse and I were still intimate at our age. I believe the majority agreed with me, as did Mike (YOU Say, 21 November 2019), until the letter from Good Grief (YOU Say, 26 December 2019), who said she’d run away if her husband asked her for sex when they’re in their seventies. Since when does a husband have to ask for sex? In any loving relationship it should transpire naturally and spontaneously. Nellie…
