Clare experimented with the chocolate sauce on a bacon and banana pancake this evening. Hmm. She weilds a mean chainsaw, before you make that hasty comment.
It seems to be a day of hearing about sad deaths - farm murders back in Rosetta near Mooi River (near where we used to live) -- the mother of a friend back there, and the the sudden death wife of a bloke we've been diving with here. She and B were part of the Saveloy selling team at the cattle sale at which they laughed themselves into aching sides and stomachs. My heart goes out to my friends back in South Africa, living around there, and the sadness, fear and anger they will have to deal with. Here the community was saddened and shocked too. The fragility of life is quite hard to deal with when it is suddenly thrust in your face. I guess the message is to get around to saying those things and telling people how much they mean to you, while you can.
The borrowed printer is working as a minor piece of good news.
