you say

I KNOW it’s a cliché to say “time flies” but what the heck has happened to this year? It seems like the other day I was making and breaking my new year’s resolutions – now it’s nearly December and the shops are full of twinkling lights and all things buy-me. I find it a little overwhelming, to tell you the truth. It’s not that I don’t love the festive season – I do. It’s just that this time of year reminds me how disorganised I am. Next year, I always say, I’m going to buy gifts throughout the year, snapping things up when I see something I know someone will like. Instead what happens? A mad dash round the mall, often on Christmas Eve when everything is madly expensive and the shops…

these hands . . .

MY MOM, Peggy Joan Phillips, passed away on 5 October at the age of 102. I hope you find this tribute that my daughter-in-law, Sharla Faragher, wrote for her worthy of printing: “These now frail hands were once so strong. These hands worked hard and loved even harder. These hands raised four daughters, 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandkids; these hands shook hands with royalty; these hands served you during World War 2; these hands pinned badges on your husband’s uniforms for the RAF; these hands typed up many journal pages filled with long-forgotten memories and, of course, these hands held the letter from Queen Elizabeth which you received for your 100th birthday – you were so chuffed. “At age 91 these hands wrote out a letter proclaiming your final wishes of a…

BROTHERLY LOVE It’s a good thing to hear that, when she was alive, Princess Diana used to encourage her boys to be a solid unit (YOU, 7 November). The boys have always lived their late mother’s wish until recently when Harry decided to marry Meghan against his elder brother’s will. The bond William and Harry used to share as boys was always going to be tested when they became family men. The brothers need to read Psalm 133:1 together: “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.” This will remind them how strong and happy they used to be when they were still working together in most of their commitments. One hopes the royal brothers will sweep whatever the misunderstanding is aside and hold hands again. They’ll set…

the joy of books

I love reading but in South Africa we pay exorbitantly high prices for books. I joined my local library years ago and whenever I feel like it I can get a pile of assorted titles free. I choose from the “recently read” or “librarian recommends” sections and often get books by authors I’ve never heard of. This means I read books that I’d never have thought to buy. If you take out a book that, after the first few chapters, turns out to be a disappointment, you just give it back, no questions asked. The Kindle is an amazing device but a book is better because you don’t need a password and it never runs out of battery life! When you’ve finished reading a book, you give it back to the library…

in brief

I wish shoppers would bag their items in supermarkets instead of having the cashiers do it when there are no packers, especially at busy times. There are no such luxuries in Europe. You bring your own bag, pay and pack and the cashier moves on to the next in line. Come on South Africans, stop being so spoilt and lazy. DEBBY, CAPE TOWN My grandchildren, Mikayla (9) and Freddie (5), spend hours completing YOU’s puzzle pages. They really enjoy it and I love that it helps with their problem-solving skills. DOREEN McCLARTY, FISH HOEK With Black Friday looming, I started thinking about the poorer people in our country. Here’s an opportunity for them to enjoy the luxury of consumerism and buy that extra something. In our strained economic climate, these are the people who…
