Scary stories from a lovely place
My name is Kim. You can read about this blog here.
I live in Brixton, Johannesburg. Kids play soccer in the street all day.
I am married to Stephen. He is a clever architect. We used to have a cat, Kitty who was pretty bizarre. Now we have a son, Silas, he is pretty cool.
I’m a housewife; I knit, I bake, I drink tea, I clean, I get sad if I’m alone at home for too long and I’m getting more confident on a Singer sewing machine. I have an honours degree in English literature and hope to use it someday. Lately I’ve been working in Christian ministry; mainly reading the bible with varsity students at the University of Johannesburg and The University of the Witswatersrand, both being conveniently in walking distance from my home, sort of.
My home is right beneath the Sentech Tower, the smaller of two spectacular towers that grace the skyline of Johannesburg. It’s so beautiful here.
I grew up in Kiama, New South Wales, Australia and have lived in various places between Sydney to the north and Kiama to the south since then. The best place to live was Wombarra, just north of Wollongong. I want to try and get back there someday. It is peaceful and blue and breezy and very sandy. But right now, Jozi is a fine home.
