Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 1 of Level 1, 1 March 2021.



Monday 1 March 2021, Day 1 of Level 1, Day 341 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for having a relaxed day; for having written my Blogpost for today last night after the President’s Speech; for a few drops of rain after thunder in the distance; for Henry helping me buy my first airtime/data via the Vodacom App, much cheaper than buying it via my Standard Bank App; for a walk through Bakoven, looking for a spade which Imtiaz had left at the public toilets 😱; for an afternoon snooze, still needing to catch up on weekend sleep; for a walk to Camps Bay to collect my Maverick 168 which Odwa had kept for me, not having more energy than walking as far as Mynt, picking up lots of litter left over from yesterday; for the wow 500 Discovery points I earned nevertheless, 15400 points so far this year, perhaps getting far more speed in my new Adidas shoes; for a catch up sunset snack chat on my terrace with Jenny Stephens; for my Bestie Llewellyn registering the website address for me; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

An easy going day all in all, and a good start to March.

My run down Reeboks must have made an impression on the Beachfront homeless persons, a number of them congratulating me on my new shoes. 😱

Today, two days after the noise disturbance from her EbbTide 202 flat, owner Magali Seguillon apologized, saying she needed to catch up on sleep first before replying! I told her that I have the right to sleep in my apartment in peace and quiet and not be disturbed by her drunk AirBnB clients! 😡😡😡

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,  extended to 15 February on 11 January, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 2021, 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.
