Let’s explore life through the new normal

From masks to deliveries to video calls, we live in unprecedented times

This month has probably been one of the toughest of my life yet I’ve also laughed a lot, adopted a hedgehog, and grown even closer to my friends and family. I opened a bottle of dessert wine two nights ago because 1) I ran out of real wine ages ago (and am too cheap to pay R300 for a bottle of wine that usually costs R80, also don’t want to buy on the black market) and 2) I really needed a drink.

You know perfectly legitimate comments.

And as always, someone then went and did this. The expensive milk gets me. Genius!

Someone else that was trending on Twitter this week? Bianca.
