Out about (Cape) Town

The Summer itch has set in, and suddenly Cape Town's Sunday crowds have abandoned Asoka's cosy wooded warmth for Caprice's Camps Bay sunshine life. It's about this time of year that we notice clubs have popped up, things have started happening, and the old ladies screaming at us that "that is not a legitimate parking space", now unfortunately get to do it from out of doors.  From 17onLoader's gorgeous De Waterkant-view deck, we've seen things happening down there and we know what's new.

Having walked straight out of student-ville into an apparent recession, counting out five cent coins for airtime, or returning coke bottles in order to purchase my popcorn staple, is nothing unusual. Still, I admit that extra electricity, food and woolens, worsens winter finances somewhat. I battle with the self-inflicted torture of window-shopping, or the notion that social resuscitation is not a good enough reason to dip into the emergency fund.

Crayons are being treated with the same gravity as nuclear weapons. Walls have been adapted to resemble experimental, Pollock canvases. You think that you are beginning to identify linguistic conventions in TellyTubby speech, and in the midst of all of this, your only moments of silence occur when you are sorting mixed vegetables according to colour. Worst of all, “But DAD! He keeps LOOKING at me!” is considered a genuine and legitimate defense for sibling aggravation and, when asked to approach the bench, a strategic combination of puppy dog eyes and the by-now-familiar statement “I’m bored”, is used to wrench at your heartstrings. Is any of this sounding familiar? We all love our kids, but let's face it - school holidays are
