Hands up. (No, no, relax. I’m not robbing you.) I just want to see who else is feeling the punishing pinch of the contracting value of the rand?

Loving the vibe

“Erm, no. That’s not mine. I only wanted egg on my toast,” I said, almost nervously. “@%&*(,” she let rip.

TV blues

2019-08-05 11:22

So what’s on TV tonight and how do I wrestle the remote away from the guy in the house?

The N3 hell run

2019-07-08 10:30

I don’t often travel the N3 in the direction of Durban. My job keeps me more desk-bound nowadays and leisure time seems to nudge us rather towards the Midlands, the Berg and Gauteng than the coastal belt.

Goodbye, Nondu

Two weeks ago we lost a wonderful colleague.

Let’s take a walk, Sir

2019-06-03 10:28

Is there anybody out there?

Noises in the night

2019-05-26 16:20

As I walked towards the kitchen, I stopped dead. What was that?

A good man gone

2019-05-06 10:03

On Tuesday afternoon, I received some bad news. I was scanning through The Witness classifieds when I came across a death notice, out of the blue, for a contact I had worked with for many years.

The showman’s con

Let me tell you a story.


Riding pillion

2020-02-24 10:02

It had been a rough week. You know the kind.

Have we lost our shame?

2020-02-10 10:41

On Sunday [last week], the guy and I needed to get out of town. We’d had the stink of the dump fire in chunks, and you know how bad I am when confronted with a bad smell.

The desperate search

2020-01-20 14:03

I had the grumps with our house last month. And it turned out it wasn’t even the house’s fault.

Photojournalist legend says cheers

Today I’m writing about a Witness legend in the form of the one, the only (drumroll please …) chief photographer Ian Carbutt.

Teaching your little ‘bundles of joy’

I admit I’m a bit addicted. There’s no shame in my habit though. Lots of people do it.

Being a black woman in Asia

So I’ve been sitting and pondering on how to actually begin writing about my experiences teaching English as a second language in Taiwan so far; so I’ll begin where I begin because beginnings happen everyday.

Pragmatism in a time of panic

2019-05-08 15:18

We like to talk of failure. The economy has failed. Reconciliation has failed. The ANC has failed. The government has failed. In our despair we flail around, looking for salvation, sometimes from the first snake-oil salesman who happens along.

Ruining the mood
