Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 22 of Level 4, 19 July 2021



Monday 19 July 2021, Day 22 of Level 4 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a sunny start and ending in a rainy afternoon; for a peaceful sleep in total silence 🙏; for an up and down morning, doing a Bakoven walk before the rain arrived; for a demo by Nick Taylor of Nox Rentals of the Swedish Minut Noise monitor, installed for me to measure the noise level from the other apartments in the building, also measuring the number of persons in an apartment; for a Camps Bay walk, just missing the next rain; for taking action against what is happening illegally in the apartment building; and for being healthy and free. 🙏💙

My Blogpost was about the disappointing Lamb Curry by Café Charles in De Waterkant!

Restaurant Review: Café Charles in De Waterkant disappoints with Lamb Curry Collection!

Today I decided to tackle all the nonsense that is happening in our building, including:

1. Sacha Jack deviously getting a quote approved for a lock for the door from the garage on her side of the building, to prevent me from taking the Camps Bay CSI and police up to her Ebbtide apartment 201 for Noise Disturbances. So funny that the handyman who started at 10h00 this morning has only managed to create a gaping hole in the door! The cheek is that I have to pay 20% of the cost of the lock installation, even if it is to keep me out of half the building!

2. The door is a fire escape one and possibly a fire door, so I applied for a Fire Inspection, to check whether the door can be locked.

3. I wrote to Paddocks, a law firm which specializes in Sectional Title. This is to check the legality of locking the door which connects Common property, and preventing me from using the door and passage. And the impact on the levies of the two apartments locking their side of the building, if they now regard the staircase and passage as their private property!

4. I wrote to CSOS, the Ombudsman for Sectional Title disputes, taking the same issues to them.

Phew 🥵🥵🥵🥵😱😱😱😱😱

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 and extended by two weeks on 11 July,  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.
