I CONSIDER myself lucky that everyone in my family is now either fully or half vaccinated. My siblings were the most impressive of us all – they were sending pictures of their vaccine cards the same day vaccination opened to the 18- to 34-year-old group. By October my closest family will all be fully vaccinated, which gives me hope that Christmas won’t be as fraught as last year. We’ll still be careful, for sure, but at least we’ll know we’ve done everything we can to protect ourselves and one another. It breaks my heart to see how so many people still refuse to get the vaccine. The chance of the virus mutating is so much greater with so many still unvaccinated, putting all of us at risk. And, of course, there’s the fact…

honour your gran

I grew up watching my grandmother actively doing house chores by herself when our mother would be away at work. Even when my mother was home, Granny would always find an excuse to work on something. She is now 78 years old and over the past few years she’s become rather sickly. She now spends the whole day on the couch watching television. I can tell she gets frustrated. She’s dying to do housework and her frustration makes her nag us. My siblings now avoid spending the day with her, but I try to spend good quality time with her whenever I get a chance. It’s painful enough that we leave her alone and Ionely at home when we go to work and school. Most of us today neglect our grannies by focusing on social media. To…

CHARLENE NEEDS OUR SUPPORT Princess Charlene is one of us, a Southern African, whose roots and love of the country are unquestioned (YOU, 22 July). She’s a wife and mother, and a supporter of great and wonderful projects. She has gifted many poor communities with her time and financial support. She is blessed to have been thrust into the limelight and has proven time and again that she is a caring and loving human being. She’s now a very important person on the world stage and has proven her love for this country. The least we can do is support her and wish her well during this very difficult time. PETER BACHTIS, BENONI THINGS TO BE GRATEFUL FOR What really works for me during this pandemic is actually very simple: appreciate what you have. Before Covid I…

stop whining, harry!

I felt angry after reading the article about Prince Harry dealing his gran, the queen, a heavy blow (YOU, 5 August). He has been privileged all his life, living off the UK taxpayers and his family. He has never wanted for anything, never gone without.He should be totally ashamed of himself. No one should continually run down or condemn one’s family like he does and keep getting paid for it. It’s disgusting behaviour. He shouldn’t be allowed to make money out of the privileged royal name. Thank you for so many hours of reading pleasure. CONNIE & MICHAEL, EMAIL Harry needs to grow up and stop this vendetta against the royal family. He was lucky to be born into a life of privilege but he whinges and whines the whole time and his grandmother, the…

in brief

Whenever I need a snack, I have a drink of water and the craving stops. SANDY, SMS Serves Tatiana Akhmedova right (YOU, 5 August). She should have taken the obscene amount of money she was offered in the first place and run. The disgusting greed of the rich and famous is nauseating. Clearly no breeding and no culture. CHURCH MOUSE, SMS If you own ground where clover thrives, do hungry doves a favour by digging up clover bulbs for them. FH, BOTHASIG Covid is so frightening. It seems to spare many people, even those with comorbidities, yet cruelly takes the lives of healthy, fit people. It’s so random and so scary. I can’t wait for my second vaccine. At least then I’ll stand a chance. ELLY, EMAIL I agree with Enid Hilton (YOU, 19 August). Looters should not…
