Thursday 20 January 2022, Day 112 of Level 1 😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day that did not start off well ending on such a high note; for a working morning, posting for my clients, for a Bakoven walk and preparing for an afternoon meeting; for good Utopia and Anatoli Status meetings; for finding Lello’s Deli in De Waterkant but not finding anything to buy; for a shop at Pick n Pay on Strand Street, shocked that the 500 g ProVita has jumped in price from R39,99 to R49,99, a 25 % increase 😱😡; for a wonderful dinner at the home of John French and Garth French in Upper Sea Point, with Mullerie Taljaard, the boys preparing a fabulous dinner of Beef Fillet and Salad paired with a delicious Mullineux Syrah 2014, loving John’s ‘Poppekas’ of beautiful Meissen porcelain figurines ❤️, and sharing many stories; for being let out of the property manually when the sliding gate wouldn’t open; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

My Alex couldn’t board as he had the incorrect PCR Test, so he arrives on Saturday 😱

I met King Porsche stating in EbbTide apartment 202 in our garage this afternoon. Appears to be from KZN. Delighted that his Porsche is incapacitated and he now drives a lowly NUR numberplate SUV.  What an arrogant man. He leaves tomorrow. He let the Porsche idle in the garage for a few minutes each time he gets ready to drive his car, which can be heard in each of our apartments.

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March 2020 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 2021, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 2021, moved back to Adjusted Level 2 on 31 May, moved back to level 3 on 16 June, and moved back to Adjusted Level 4 on 28 June, extended by two weeks on 11 July,  returned to Level 3 on 26 July, returned to Level 2 on 13 September, returned to Level 1 on 1 October,  and the Curfew Curfew lifted on 30 December 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.
