SYMPATHY FOR THE MOTHER (apologies to the Rolling Stones)
Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Cathy. Seven years ago I left the city (Durban, South Africa) after having lived there nearly all my adult life, to live a country life in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal. When both my children left home, I experienced the empty nest syndrome. I read somewhere that after 50, although life becomes very predictable, you never see it coming! How true. This is a peek at my attempt to forge a life for myself post full-time motherhood and after 50.
