I LOVE a board game. Any excuse to play Scrabble or Bananagrams, Pictionary or Trivial Pursuit and I’m there. The problem is finding someone to play with me. My husband hates them, spoilsport that he is, and my children are off doing their own thing most of the time. My mom was my greatest Scrabble companion but she’s gone to play board games in the sky and is probably letting my dad win now that they’re reunited again – he always was a terrible loser. Being such a game fan is why I enjoyed our story about loadshedding on page 10 so much. I know that “enjoy” and “loadshedding” usually don’t belong in the same sentence. But in this case, the parents tell how they gather around a board game when…

MY FORTUNE TOLD IN MATRIC I gave in to peer pressure and accompanied a group of giggling schoolgirls to consult a fortune-teller. When my turn came she told me I was dating a boy whom I’d eventually marry. She said his initials comprised double letters of the alphabet, that he was in uniform and that we’d one day have three children – two girls and a boy. My boyfriend’s initials were LL and at the time he was doing his national service. A few years later our marriage was blessed with a son and a daughter. I then had to have an emergency hysterectomy at age 29. When the children were about nine and six, I became a day mother to a newborn girl. As she started walking and talking, her resemblance to my…

SPORT & POLITICS DON’T MIX Your article about the new Bok coach (YOU, 6 February) refers to politicians interfering in sport. Why is South Africa allowed to get away with this? Isn’t that why we were booted out of all world sport years ago? No wonder so many of our good sportsmen have left this country. I wish they’d fix up the shameful mess they’ve made of everything they’ve touched instead of bleating about things they know nothing about. BOOTS AND ALL, EMAIL THE TRAUMA OF A COMA I’d like to comment on the article about Michael Schumacher being “very different” today (YOU, 6 February). Yes, he is different because of his three-month-long coma. So would you be if you’d been in a coma! I recently marked the 34th anniversary of my accident. I was…

The comments about Harry and Meghan are obviously coming from people who’ve never been discriminated against (YOU Say, 6 February). It’s emotionally draining to feel constantly that you’re an outsider and never good enough and don’t know where you really belong. I’m surprised Meghan hasn’t been diagnosed with severe depression. Put yourself in a situation where you aren’t accepted and let’s see how you handle it. It puts severe pressure on your marriage and family. Let’s give them a chance to build their lives. It might even improve their relationship with the royal family. NO JUDGMENT, EMAIL It seems the negativity surrounding Meghan, especially in the British media, has escalated. It must be traumatic to face such a continuous barrage and I applaud Prince Harry for taking a stand on behalf of his…

in brief

At least a thousand men, women and children died on South African roads again in January as President Cyril Ramaphosa ignored demands to introduce the same lifesaving measures now in place in countries that protect the lives of road users. When will South Africans demand action to end the daily bloodshed as other countries have done? RICHARD BENSON, ROAD SAFETY ACTION CAMPAIGN It’s so wonderful to see such natural beauty in a mini pageant queen. Olwethu Mhlongo (YOU, 23 January), you’re going to shine. I think you’re just gorgeous! GOGO JOY, SMS Yesterday I received the YOU Crossword Dictionary. What a wonderful way to start the day. It just goes to show that you must never give up trying. It could happen to you one day. Many thanks. TOM McMURRAY, EMAIL If the photo of Meghan…
