You can take a girl out of South Africa, but you can’t take South Africa out of the girl…
Today (Sunday) we were invited for lunch at the house of a friend and work colleague, who also happens to be a fellow South African.
Aside from seeing her in person, I don’t know what was the bigger treat: having a braai in November, or getting to hang out with her dogs. I think let’s call it a tie.
It’s interesting that now in covid times we have less chance to socialise, but when we do, it’s perhaps a bit more personal, because we have to visit each other at home (with 1.5m distancing) and invite others into our homes as well.
Even while we’re working from home, we are showing a bit of our home life in the background of every video call. Personally, I always hope to see people’s dogs or babies, whichever is possible(cats and other pets are welcome too) . It always makes me smile.
Be kind. Stay safe.
