… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

Sjoe. Just a quick pop in. Have no time. Dunno when I’ll have time again.


I’m sad. I miss the vibe, and the peeps and catching up on goings-on.


Like Effie would say “ek’t lank laas so my gat so afgewerk. Ek earn eintlik my salary”


And I thought things were winding down. I shouldn’t think at all, it seems.

At this rate, I’m not sure I’ll get leave this December. Unplanned projects, neh? Bane of any control freak’s existence.




Okay, now the actual post. My baby was on tour a few weeks ago. I didn’t cry – I’m relieved to get a few days off – he’s draining.


The first thing he says to me when I picked him up – no hello ma, how’re you, I’ve missed you. etcetera. Nopes. Not this child. Wonder who he takes after.


B2: “Ma, we need to have the birds-and-the-bees talk”


I almost stalled right in the middle of a very busy street.


Me: *sputters* “Why must I do this?!?! Go ask your da”

B2: “Ma, you know him. He doesn’t talk”

Me: “Well, he’ll just have to this time!!!”

B2: “Does he even know about these things?”

Me: *rolls eyes* “Of course!”

B2: “But will he know how to explain it to me?!”

Me: *knowing full-well the limit of Boo’s communication skills* “Ye-es”

B2: Hmm *ponders very briefly* “I think I’ll try my luck with you. TA isn’t doing too bad. So you couldn’t have done too bad a job, right?”

Me: *not sure to be worried or flattered* “Do we have to do this now? Today? Is it urgent?”

B2: “Nah. Tomorrow’s cool”


Sigh. Why me??????!!!!!!!

This was apt



I will be scarce. Got a trip to organise for next week. Workshops. Yadayadayada. Will pop in when I can.


Don’t have too much fun without me!!

  1. Actually, it’s a pretty good thing I’m not a dad. I’d probably buy the kid some cheap porno and tell him to find out for himself!
