Corona Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a lovely day, starting off cool, warming up, and ending cold and windy as the rain clouds roll in; for a good preparation for my Status meetings this morning; for a walk to Woolies, to buy winter soup ingredients, popping in at the Theatre on the Bay on the way, so happy for our Camps Bay icon that it has opened its first show since Lockdown, and for William the best Computicket staff member in the world still being there 👏👏👏👏; for my Dinkel rolls waiting for me; after a dreadful drive from Camps Bay, taking 45 minutes due to the resurfacing of Kloofnek Road, all traffic condensed into one lane in each direction; for my Utopia and Anatoli client indulging my slight lateness as a result; for a good meeting, with a lovely lunch buzz, and for the excitement of a sneak preview of the Utopia Christmas and New Year’s Eve menus; for a refreshing Bakoven walk, with the sun setting into rain clouds; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙
Today’s Blogpost was about notorious and dishonest Chef Conrad Gallagher, who opened Bistro Vin de Boeuf in St Francis Bay earlier this week. 😱
The Full Moon appears to be getting to a number of people, being snappy, irritable, and triggered, including I today, when I lost it with a parking attendant. 😱
Sad to hear that the Victoria Junction hotel in Green Point went into liquidation today.
The search for Brian Laundrie in Florida took a turn today. Is anyone else following this?
PS Brian Laundrie confirmed dead, according to dental records. What a sad story #GabbiPetito.

I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
