Well, I mean, apart from this one.
Long day. Painting (no, not the peach study) (yet), gardening, bathing the beagle, sorting the storeroom… stuff.
And then a braai with a disappointing steak. Not my fault.
Silk purse; sow’s ear.
More tomorrow. Of all of the above. But actually maybe not the steak or the beagle bath.
I had promised my dad, who’s over for a couple of weeks visiting his grandkids and grandbeagle, some traditional South African loadshedding, but we all thought that it would kick in tomorrow, when everyone goes back to work and the demand for electricity we can’t provide goes up.
Not the case, as at 10pm yesterday evening, Eskom announced a night of Stage 2, ostensibly in order to top up their diesel and repump their water. This didn’t directly affect us, thanks to a friendly schedule, but then we woke this morning to a 24 hour extension, meaning no coffee for me, and no early morning Scalectrix for the beagle.
Understandably, we’re both pretty annoyed right now.
I’m also wondering what the immediate reason is for today’s loadshedding, given that the diesel and the water were sorted overnight. It doesn’t bode well for the rest of the week. Or for the rest of the year.
