Friday 1 April 2022, Day 183 of Level 1 😷
Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a fabulous day, that just became better as the day progressed; for being able to do a Bakoven walk on a day with very strong wind, the wind having died down somewhat over lunch time; for preparing a proposal for a prospective client, loving writing it as it is different to the work I do for my other clients; for a meeting at Labotessa Hotel & Café, loving their tea and Appeltaart spoil 💙 ; for a photograph session at Anatoli, for its participation in Restaurant Week running from today until 30 April, being allowed to taste a lovely Turkish Coffee Crème Brûlée, and loving interacting with guests, even a German tourist wanting to take food home to his ill wife, and happy to see the restaurant so full, its owner coming for dinner 💙; for celebrating the acquisition of a new client with Gary, already in his dressing gown, not being able to resist photographing him, sharing some Anatoli Mezzes and a flatbread, spoilt with a Jammie from Gary’s liquor cabinet 🥃, and catching up on news; for making the 7500 steps for today in the last minute before midnight literally 😱; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙
