I thought I’d share some interesting information with you all: if you aren’t sure whether you’re registered to vote, sms your ID number to 32810 and they will send you a message telling you whether you are registered and where you should vote.

I have found it surprisingly uplifting to see the enthusiastic tweets about how good voting is making people feel! I’m really proud to be a South African, living here, able to make a difference with my vote. Hope you feel the same.

If not, I’m sure the day off is making you feel good regardless. If you’re looking for something to keep you entertained, take a walk along our magnificent promenade. The sea is looking beautiful this morning…
