I’m in Cape Town this week, visiting my mum for the first time since she’s moved to the Mother City.
There have been more pictures than words of late, and I’d have turned this entire space into a photo blog yonks ago if it didn’t mean I would be giving my procrastination djinn the rope to strangle my muse. But for now, while Table Mountain mellows and irons out my thinking, pictures will have to make do.
