Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a warm day with a moderate South Easter; for getting up early and posting for my clients, and preparing for client Status meetings; for a Jason’s croissant breakfast at home with the boys; for bravely going to my gentle ophthalmologist to book two eye ops a week apart, the first on Tuesday, my first ever use of Discovery to cover any medical costs 💙 ; for a lovely Zest lunch to spoil Justin Miller on his birthday, having helped him get the job at newkings boutique hotel 💙; for good Status meetings at Zest and newkings; for a quick shop at Woolies Piazza da Luz; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙
The smell along the Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay coastline is getting really bad, possibly from the huge amounts of kelp still on the rocks and beaches. Great to see that the ocean is back to normal, no more crazy waves.
So exciting to see a young 21 year old bride celebrate her marriage at Zest with friends and family this afternoon. 🌹
