Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 155 of Level 1, 4 March 2022



Friday 4 March 2022, Day 155 of Level 1😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a peaceful organised hard working day of writing and posting; for staying home most of the day; for a slightly cooler day, the wind picking up strongly late afternoon, and feeling a first touch of autumn; for having tea with Rose Klein and Hans-Werner Klein at buzzy The 41 Restaurant, and then coming to my home afterwards for a spontaneous red wine and some snacks; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

I had the displeasure of having to deal with two Call Centres today, one for Discovery Insure and another for the City of Cape Town, calling the latter twice, as the first person answering had such an attitude! Amazing how two City staff could answer the phone so differently. 😊😡

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.
