i then glance aside and see a lady with "corn removers". hmmm. interesting. so i ask her why she is buying them (the nerve of it! gasp gasp in retrospect). she kindly (and clearly politely) tells me that her daughter has a verucca (sp??) oh, i say. in durban, i continue, as one does, there was an indian lady who would suck the verucca straight out the foot with a straw after soaking the foot in hot water for a long time...just like that...suck suck and plop. nice eh? out it came. all clean. . .

and my sons worry that i shall "break up" with their father because there i was mumbling about "cheapness of the chinese taps and such things" and "where the bloody hell are all the men" and " and if you're going to bloody well buggar off at least make sure the effing plumbing works...i mean )(#$*(*&#$*(%^&*$^%&*^!!!! AND blah.
i say to them of course i won't, sillies. and kiss their gorgeous sun kissed cheeks...while danu pops the first born says oh mama i wish i could help you more...Oh My God. so i tuck them up and wish them golden dreams and feel my heart full to bursting to breaking. sillies. sillies.
on a seriously lighter and entirely victorious note: miranda of http://thetimesofmiranda.blogspot.com/) has her new motorbike! totally totally groovy and MANY brownie points for the sister hood. indeed. she and her guru famous artist mum pamu came to visit for tea and chocolate cake this afternoon after collecting the motorbike. pamu in landrover and miranda on sexy bike. or rather sexy miranda on bike. the place where they collected the bike from is about fifteen minutes drive away. it took them 2 hours to get here through the karonga (oh god. look it up in a swahili dictionary - a donga, a bloody great big ditch caused by erosion from overgrazing...by poor people..oh BLAH) . i am not going to go into any details here. jesus. bloody unbelievable. (the directionless, the aimlessness) ANYHOW, swifly moving on. great excitement to see mo and her bike roaring up the ngorobobs!
