I was watching a rather interesting vlog earlier. The government, it seems, is doing exactly what it was designed to do all along. Stay in power. The vlogger suggests that lockdown conditions suit political ends and that the state will use force to maintain the new status quo. And force, as the saying goes, is […]

Lockdown Log: I will choose daddy.

Candice Nolan

Me and Baby Sesame were watching the Little Mermaid earlier. She was so intrigued by the concept of having to choose between her daddy and the prince. Then she announced, out of the blue, that if it came down to it, she would always choose her daddy! I suspect I may have to scoop melted […]

I am so content. My body is completely relaxed. I’m eating healthy. Feeling fabulous! Lockdown has been the answer to a silent prayer. To top things off, things are working so smoothly on the home front. Must be all that time we’ve invested in each other over the past month, eh?! This post is dedicated […]

Guest Writer: Wanton greed

Candice Nolan

My family’s recent visits to the shopping malls were greeted with horror when we had to pay  close on R1000 for measly wares, which all fitted into a regular hand carrier basket. I am grateful that we can still “haal uit en wys” and apply die Wet van Transvaal, but the disturbing aspect is the […]
