Friday 31 July 2020, Day 61 of Level 3, after 66 days of Levels 5 and 4 😷
Corona Gratitude 🙏
#Grateful for a beautiful 19C day, nice and sunny and warm; for a slow lazy morning but then I had to catch up over the rest of the day😱; for my mother drilling me in German, now having an opportunity to apply for two German-speaking jobs; for finding my Discovery DisChem voucher with the help of a Discovery assistant telephonically; for an energetic walk to 4th Beach in Clifton, seeing my friend Howard on the way; for Camps Bay looking busier today, with Tiger’s Milk and Caprice looking nice and busy, and the road outside my home being fully parked; for a nice weekend feel with a good weather forecast, before we dip back into winter next week; for dancing to Kfm as I write 💃; for the offer of financial assistance for my Camps Bay Clean litter work, awaiting confirmation 💙; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙
I learnt from Thabied Harris that there are two Eids in a year, one after Ramadan, and now this one linked to Mecca. Eid Mubarak to my Muslim friends.
My Sweet and Sour Service Awards both went to Discovery today. 😱
I have to prepare a CV, not having needed one in 30 years of being self-employed. Thank goodness it’s all on my Facebook profile. And one of the application forms is designed for Germans from Germany, with different educational descriptions. So far, so good.
The delayed Curfew start at 22h00 is gazetted, and valid as of now.

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March and to continue until 16 April, subsequently extended to 30 April, lowered to Level 4 from 1 May, and lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, is an unprecedented event in my lifetime. I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
