Comfort blanket for our puppies: the orange kanga.

Comfort blanket for our puppies: the orange kanga.

 

My parents brought this kanga back from Kenya before I was born. So it means a lot to me.

 

It’s also an incredibly versatile cloth: From provisional mushroom gathering net to sick rescue puppy sling to scarf, hoodie and blankie, this fabric’s cherished.

 

It holds so many memories, it’s as if the bright orange is fuelled with great moments. While the light blue just along the outer edge is the perfect balancing complementary colour of freshness.

 

Now this comfort cloth has gone missing. If you have seen this sarong, kindly get in touch: TrulyJuly@web.de 🙂

 

 

What’s going on next door?

I think they’re having a braai.

Yes, I saw, but what’s the commotion?

I don’t know?

It sounds more like an argument.

Shall we have a look?

Yes, that’s like, they’re shouting.

But wait.

What?

It has stopped.

Gosh, that silence is more worrying than the shouting. Please take a look.

Okay.

What is it?

No way. It looks like…

What?

I think they’re busy taking a selfie.

Good morning M’am, please sign the register.

 

Of course.

 

‘Ranzani’? Are you Venda?

 

Sorry? A vendor?

 

No, I mean Venda.

 

Sorry, I’m not selling anything.

 

No, I mean ‘Ranzani’, is that Venda?

 

Well yes, you could say so, my husband runs Ranzani Design, a product design and manufacturing company.

 

So, is your husband Venda?

 

Ja well, he sells his products.

 

No, no. You know, ‘Ranzani’ means something like ‘Loving’ in Venda.

 

Ah! … Oh! … Wow!

Our handshower did everything for us: dishes, dogs, rugs, clothes...

Our handshower did everything for us: dishes, dogs, rugs, clothes…

 

Decisions, decisions!

Do we need a bath, isn’t that just a water waster? Should we have the shower in the bath or stand-alone? And if we go for a separate shower cubicle, can we at least have a handshower in the bath tub?

The handshower it is, and thank goodness!

Who would’ve thought we end up with this one handshower as the only water point in the entire house besides the showers, meaning we washed our hands, did our dishes, brushed our teeth, all with this one handshower.

It was like doing an AfrikaBurn in our own house.

Turns out also my mum ended up doing the dishes in their bath tub when they got a new kitchen.

So this is just another one of those bizarre experiences that weirdly enough some people you’d never expected share with you and totally understand what you’re going through.

Can you spot the spelling mistake?

Can you spot the spelling mistake?

 

Here we have an advertisement for a copywriting course, which is referred to as ‘copyright course’. An easy to make writing mistake with this homophone.

 

Of course the quotes could suggest someone else said this and the blunder was copied over from them, except that this someone else isn’t quoted, making the quotes pretty pointless. The missing punctuation also doesn’t help.

 

I’d go as far as saying for SEO purposes it could very well make sense to include a spelling error probably many people make when typing their search into Google.

 

However, I cringe at such rookie mistake and wonder if they are following good practices such as proofreading their copy. 😮

Hi, you’re back from the Eastern Cape?

 

Yes, my mom put all her money together to buy me a train ticket.

 

So you’re back to living rough on the abandoned plot?

 

Yes, but it’s not nice. It’s all new people now.

 

Hm, I don’t really understand why you came back in the first place?

 

Do you have 5 Rand?

 

Sorry, we don’t keep any cash, especially since the robbery.

 

Oh, I didn’t know. You got robbed?

 

Yes… It’s South Africa for all of us.

Do you need a plastic bag?

 

No thanks. I do need a clear bag though for the chicken.

 

Please help yourself.

 

Would you know if this chicken was frozen?

 

Frozen? I don’t think so.

 

It’s just, it’s really cold.

 

Maybe it got cold on its way here, it’s so cold out there!

 

Lol, like it got frozen when they were driving over the mountains, there is currently snow up there!
