Corona Virus, Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 38 of Level 1, 7 April 2021.



Wednesday 7 April 2021, Day 38 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a lovely sunny 23C day; for an up and down day, luckily more up; for getting my writing work done in time before meeting with my client, he having the tea and shortbread ready when I arrived, being on the same wavelength as I on a number of decisions which needed to be made; for a lovely walk to the Camps Bay Tidal Pool with Vivian Warby, savouring the beautiful sunset; for (only) one Discovery Gameboard play, not receiving an Insure one for my poor driving score on my last Stellenbosch trip 😱; for a fabulously efficient Takealot order delivery, the perfection of online ordering; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

My Blogpost today was another episode in the SA Butler Academy saga…. with more dishonesty, and a surprise move on their part …

SA Butler Academy continues its lies to its students and future employers, and now hides its disparagement of its critics on its website!

Today I learnt the lesson that Terms and Conditions are important to be signed off by new clients, shocked about how one can be treated by new clients, especially if it is a woman client! I’ve decided that I’ll only deal with Restaurant clients going forward. I’ll be watching to see if my marketing ideas will be used by Diane Armstrong of Out of the Blue. 😡

My Anatoli meetings are lovely, cosy, chatty, and we did a history tour of the Franschhoek restaurant industry, as its Chef Jacques used to work there at one stage.

Word played up on my iPad today, it possibly being a capacity problem, my three book manuscripts stored in it. My IT advisor Llewellyn suggests its time for a new iPad, mine being 5 models behind the times!

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.
