OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
Eel every it is.
An accidental image that says so much about the surreal quality of our present.
Stood in a loooooong queue at DStv today. It’s also a looooong story. Luckily, there was a happy ending, and Mama TV will still be able to put me to sleep for a looooong time to come.
Thank goodness I took Harry with me and he kept me company during the wait in the customer tent erected as a safety measure in front of the DStv offices. Terrible plot twist though: Eleanor was shot dead in a dodgy Hong Kong hotel!!! And all these books, I have been hoping that she and Harry would get back together again … What a mess!
What else? My shower renovations are complete! I finished everything this morning and will probably waste a lot of water tomorrow when I have my first proper shower in the house since September … No comment!
Everything feels like an eternity nowadays.
I also finished a book review today that I have been writing for the duration of the lockdown (I wish this was an exaggeration, but it isn’t). A million other things got done. By late afternoon, my head was spinning again and I just decided to call it quits and start a fire and open a red (a gift from a Karavan Press author :)). My love came to dinner and we enjoyed braaied chops and wors on the stoep.
And then, I had a wonderful Skype date with my Mom and Krystian – he celebrated his name day today :)
Now, I am ready for bed.
Eel every, I tell you. Good night.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
