Arooooo there Everybuddy!
We thought we’d butter you all up with this cartoon (BOL!!), before we get onto the “serious” stuff.
So, what many of you may not know about South Africa is that our academic year runs from January to December. Yup, we’re pretty simple folk down here in the southern hemisphere, when the new year begins…so do our schools and universities; and when the year ends…well, you get the picture, right?
Anyhowl, what does this have to do with your two most favourite Scottie South Africans we hear you bark (and meow and squawk and oink)? Well, mom is the examiner for two modules in a counselling qualification which the college that she works for offers, and it’s exam time at the moment which means she is up to her eyeballs in marking. So yes, you guessed it, this is why we’ve been a little scarce lately and will continue to be for a little while longer. We are visiting and reading but we just don’t get to do much commenting at the moment :( BUTT mom promises that we will be back to 100% capacity just as soon as she can see the top of her desk again (it’s covered in exams at the moment).
We hope you understand xoxo
