When the Three left home this morning, and I was about to head up to Joburg for three days, Josie said, “Daddy, please write something down so that you don’t forget me.”

If you have children you will probably have considered that the only circumstances in which you could possibly forget them are very dire indeed. Not a great set of thoughts to carry onto an aircraft and far away …

In Joburg I had a cracking-if-not-nutritious latte & muffin combo for lunch and a fun conversation with a spy who happened to sit opposite me. I felt better after that. I would have given him my card, but I was scared.
