After being lulled into a false sense of load-sheddinglessness in recent weeks, it has returned with a vengeance. Having again resorted to emergency baked beans on toast cremated on full heat setting and dished up in the dark, I decided to think seriously about the alternative methods for providing a hot meal for the family, particularly as the beans were stone cold by the time Mr Incredible got home meaning he was left with a cheese sandwich.
“There is good news and bad news. The bad news is the sh*t is about to hit the fan, the good news is the fan will be off due to load shedding*”, this is more of less the content of a close to the bone spoof Eskom broadcast which did the rounds on social media in recent months.
I’m discovering that letting your child go on a school trip can be quite anxiety inducing.
