8 years 4 months ill …
The last two weeks have been difficult.
More deaths (Phillip Hughes, the cricketer in Aus; John Lynch, Old Greys ex President in PE; Pierre Corkie, ex-teacher from Grey Bloem in Yemen).
More load shedding in the country as we face an uncertain electrical future.
More problems with petrol supplies and telephone communications.
More health challenges for me including bronchitis and gout, and more quinine tablets for the increasing spasms.
The last two weeks have been exciting.
We spent the weekend at the Bathurst Country Affair Food and Wine festival with my sister Ingrid and her husband Anton.
Sean and Phillip headed for Plettenberg Bay.
Pera has gone to New Zealand to surprise visit her sister Bridget whom she hasn’t seen in the last fourteen years.
The last two weeks have been hectic.
Planning for Christmas, preparing for Cape Town, packing for trips, sorting out taxes, attending Christmas parties and consulting doctors.
The last two weeks have been emotional.
Deaths, cancer diagnoses, illness, more CBD cases, hellos and goodbyes.
The last two weeks have been just a typical period in the experience and journey that we call Life.
