Brian’s Rugby World Cup Comment  Posted on 10/12/2015
Busy though I am right now, I am still occasionally finding time to catch up with the stuff that I would normally catch up with. Regular readers will know that this includes Brian Micklethwait’s blog, and I rather enjoyed his recent...

Good Intentions  Posted on 10/04/2015
I came home, switched the computer on, got the camera with all its lovely photos on ready. Kids to bed, quick dinner and then… I gave up. Maybe it was the two hours of fun in the sun in Struisbaai beach this morning. Maybe it was the...
