Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for another fabulous day, starting at zero and ending at 100; for surviving the fourth sleep disturbance night in a row thanks to the Nigerians; for my pool working perfectly now; for preparing for my status meetings of this afternoon; for a Bakoven walk; for a shopping trip condensed into an hour, fetching my rolls at Dinkel Bakery, buying my German treats at Hartlief; for a treat of Appeltaart and cream at Labotessa Café, and a surprise gift from owner Johan of the fabulous Dyptique shampoo, conditioner and soap ❤️; for a vegetable shop at Fideli’s; for a good Utopia and Anatoli Status Meeting; for a meeting at Zest; for the joy of Utopia and Zest being well booked tonight, and Utopia being full this weekend; for the fabulous praise from Zest Chef Pavel, watching his busy restaurant from his open plan kitchen and thanking me for it – wow ❤️; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙

My Blogpost today was the review of the Hazendal Russian Tea Ceremony.

Restaurant Review: Hazendal Avant-Garde The Russian Tea Ceremony a South African inspired High Tea with a Russian flavour!

At 3h00 this morning Franklin, the renter of Sacha Jack’s apartment 201 had one mega party, I being woken by it. I called the Camps Bay CSI and they called the police. At least 10 persons were having a party, all severely inebriated. This is the fourth night in a row that one of the Nigerians have created a noise disturbance after midnight, with no respect of the Curfew. 🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵

Tomorrow Kfm announces the winners of the Best of the Cape Awards. We are all holding thumbs for Utopia in the Best Date Night Restaurant category. 🙏🤞👏👍🙏

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, and returned to Level 3 on 26 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.
