Operation Oysterhood: 15 February

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A bedtime story.

I work – even when I am incapable of working – with the most generous people. In the last few days, I have had some truly uplifting email exchanges with writers. In the midst of despair, literary flickers of meaning.

Monday: I got through the day. In the afternoon, I cooked a delicious lamb stew for dinner and my love opened a beautiful bottle of red for us after work. We are both knackered, so it was a short but sweet evening. At one time, all three Cats joined us – a real family affair.

From the first of March, Austria is introducing free Covid-19 tests which you can get at the pharmacy for free and test yourself with at home. This makes me happy for my family. It will make life so much safer for all.

Zondo Depression lifted for a little today. At this stage, I will take any jail sentence for Zuma. If we are all equal before the law, let us witness it at least this one momentous time. I can just imagine the celebrations!

John Oliver is back after a looooong hiatus. Yay!

And Rafa is in the QF of the Australian Open :)

Now, if only my cheeks weren’t so sore and I could sleep through the nights and not be so close to tears most of the time … This too shall pass.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
