The recent absence of regular posts this last fortnight was as a result of the untimely death of my mother. She had been having radiotherapy in Cape Town and eventually succumbed to some unexpected side effects. I have spent the last week in Cape Town with my family and we drove back up to Zimbabwe over the last couple of days. There is much still to do, and I will be out on the farm for the next few days.
There is much to celebrate in her life, and much of what I am today is a result of her influence; she is after all the person who taught me to read and write.
Will try and get back into my usual routine after the weekend.
