After managing to delay some renovation work at home for as long as possible my wife laid down the law and we started in earnest on the weekend. Local labour is lazy and ‘donders duur’

so we did the bathroom renovation ourselves. Saturday was fun and easy as I dismantled, chopped and ripped things out. Tyle and I spent more than 3 hours at the local hardware shop and had an Australian sausage sizzle, which is almost a boerie roll except with sausage wrapped in a slice of bread, more of a snack than a meal.

As I have said before, BK is not a political person: the doings of the leaders of this country, your country and the old country can only be described as a dark and mysterious art, resembling smoke and mirrors.

They must know what they are doing and how they are going to do it, because to BK it looks as they are walking around a dark room with a blindfold, but at the end of the day everything is still the same as it was yesterday and the day before.

I’d be the first to admit that as an Afrikaner turned English through 18 years of being married to a New Zealander, the idea of going to an Afrikaans concert did not sound very appealing. Besides, I’ve been in Australia for 16 years. Give me Pink or Missy Higgins any day. Man, I’ll even go to a Dean Geyer concert for my wife’s benefit!

The time around Valentine’s day is a time for reminiscing for me, as this was the time that I actually met my lovely wife. She often reminds me I took advantage of the fact that she was a timid “plaasmeisie” and I was a streetwise city bloke. We have been together now for more than 10 years and married for 5 of those and I recently received some truly special news and it looks like we will be having a little Aussie towards the end of April this year.

Would you know what to look for if your pet had heart failure? Fortunately heart attacks are very rare in dogs and cats, but sadly heart disease is very common, especially in aging pets. It is one of those hidden problems that slowly creeps up on them, often simply put down to old age. But the sooner heart problems are detected, the greater chance there is of doing something about it.

Gone are the days where an interview for a home loan is a one sided affair where the lenders asks all the questions. You now have the right to ask a few questions of your own.

Imagine this - it is early 2005 and you are 58 years old.  

You have decided to reduce your working hours to 3 days a week. The only difficulty you have is that you need 5 days income in order to maintain your lifestyle. But that is OK.... as you

have a reasonable amount put aside in superannuation. Why not start to draw a small pension from your super account to cover the shortfall in income?
