We are two women, one of whom is South African and the other English. We have lived together for 16 years and we have five children between us, all grown up and living in Durban, SA, the UK and the USA.
One of us is a retired teacher, specialising in remedial education, and producing and marketing software for children with special needs, and the other works as a communications project manager in the transport industry.
We are both English speaking, although we need to speak to our domestic helper in Afrikaans as she speaks one of the Nguni languages as a first language. She does understand some English though.
