We moved into our new house nearly three months ago. The first few weeks were hard – it took a while to get the gas connected, and we had rolling blackouts due to loadshedding.

“To the untrained ear, fear is in the sound of a footstep, the breaking of a branch, the heaving of a chest. But only a bad thief makes those sounds. To hear a practised thief you must listen for the sound of the blood in his veins as it carries to his extremities; the only sound that cannot be hidden.”
Fiona Leonard, The Chicken Thief

“As long as you can keep it from your throat, having evil walking by your side has its benefits.”
Fiona Leonard, The Chicken Thief
