08 October 2017 I have been off the radar for a while, because I have been traveling.

It was lovely and peaceful … More A long journey back to Cape Town
08 June 2017 We are flying to Europe tomorrow evening! When I say ‘we’, I mean me and my dear friends Reggie and Richard.

21 October 2014 Oh my word! What a storm-tossed flight it has been! I am so relieved to have landed safely in the United Kingdom!

5 August 2014 After a 6-hour flight from New Jersey, we have reached Seattle, Washington!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been wondering how Flat Kathy is doing, and whether she is alright, since saying goodbye to Paprika and Oregano on 19 August 2013.
