Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 23 of Level 3 Adjusted, 19 January 2021



Tuesday 19 January 2021, Day 23 of Level 3 Adjusted, Day 300 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a cooler day, overcast this morning, and the wind picking up now; for a good return blast to the Trustee, who clearly is stalking me on Facebook; for an efficient writing morning, giving me time to walk to Clifton Fourth Beach and back, gaining 200 Discovery points; for efficiently setting up a Camps Bay Cleaning meeting for Friday; for meeting with my new second client at his restaurant this afternoon, liking its feel, not having been there for many years; for a spontaneous pop in at Café Charles in De Waterkant, just after it closed at 3 pm, but its door was still open, so I had a tea with Justine Bee and some of my carrot cake, taking the rest home with me; for dancing to Kfm’s Dansdag 💃💃💃; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

I have a COMPETITION for my Facebook Friends. Tell me where I took the mirror pic below, the first correct answer entitling the winner to join me for dinner there on Saturday evening. 😊

My Blogpost today was about JAN Restaurant in Nice winning a Michelin 🌟, the sixth year in a row. 👏👏👏

JAN Restaurant in Nice receives a Michelin Star for the sixth year, congratulations!

This is the blast I received from the horrid Trustee in our building this morning:

You can try to be a bully as much as you want on Facebook, and in your e-mails to me, Chris. I am however, entitled to my opinion. Please be careful about what you publish on Facebook, I am reserving my legal rights about what you are publishing’.

I have not yet even mentioned her name. I love how a bully, as in her email this morning, accuses me of being a bully towards her! No one invited her to read my Facebook posts and she will never be a Facebook Friend. 🥵🥵🥵

My G has ventured out to the terrace, watching him from my desk. He and Minsky are almost there. I discovered that Minsky’s new sleeping place is inside the basin of my guest bathroom. 😱

My step quota is complete. And no Loadshedding tonight 🙏

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, and extended to 15 February on 11 January, 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.
