Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 30 of Level 3 Adjusted, 26 January 2021.



Tuesday 26 January 2021, Day 30 of Level 3 Adjusted, Day 307 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a lovely relaxed day, at 24C, the South Easter blowing now; for a productive working morning; for a surprise call from a former Camps Bay guest house neighbour in Camps Bay, needing a Social Media Manager, giving my day a pep; for a late afternoon walk to Clifton Fourth Beach and back, and for little litter along the way; for a power nap; for a beautiful sunset; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

My Blogpost was about the ‘Beyond Walls’ art installation in Sea Point, as well as in Langa and in Philippi, missing out on its official opening yesterday, as I didn’t open my diary in the morning….. 😱

Art on the ground ‘Beyond Walls’ creates longest human chain in the world, launches Public Arts Festival in Cape Town!

It is very quiet in Camps Bay, zero tables at Mynt, and one at Tiger’s Milk at 18h00, and a few more at Caprice and Zenzero. Almost zero mask-wearing too, some not wearing it at all, most wearing the mask under their mouth or chin, and only 10% doing so correctly. 😷😱

A quick shop at Woolies, with an unfriendly tired cashier, so different to what I experience at our branch normally.

I’m disappointed with online company Loot, from which I ordered CK One products three weeks ago, at an excellent price. Today, a day ahead of promised delivery, they have notified me that they cannot get stock from overseas, and that they will refund my money, which they have sat on for 3 weeks, and have bombarded me with promotional emails since I placed my order, two or three times a day. 🥵

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, lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, lowered to Level 2 from 18 August, lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, and moved back to Adjusted Level 3 from 29 December, and extended to 15 February on 11 January, 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.
