Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 43 of Level 1, 2 November 2020.



Monday 2 November 2020, Day 43 of Level 1, Day 221 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a beautiful warm 28C day; for a blood sugar level of 5,6; for a writing and admin-filled day; for a Camps Bay walk, tagging on a Pick n Pay shop to get my copy of Daily Maverick 168, just missing the worst of the queue at the tills; for having been co-opted onto the Camps Bay & Clifton Ratepayers Association committee, looking after the Marketing Portfolio, having served on the committee many moons ago; for attending the first Committee meeting this evening; for dancing to Kfm; for being able to assist Sentech in fixing the Kfm reception (in the car) in our area; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

My monthly Restaurant Opening and Closure Blogpost was one of good news: that 40 plus new restaurants have opened in Cape Town and the Winelands since the start of Lockdown. The number of Closures is down to a trickle. 😊👏

More than 40 new restaurants have opened in Cape Town and the Winelands during Lockdown: November 2020.

I’m ecstatic that I have made Discovery Diamond Status for the first time on Friday, but now I do not seem to get any points for anything since Saturday, supposedly having reached my limit for the year in most categories! Is anyone else experiencing the same?

What an auspicious day/week: Germany went into Lockdown today, for a month. The new Fat Harry’s and Chefs Warehouse Tintswalo Atlantic restaurants opened today. Vasbyt and congrats 🎈🎉🍾 The American election is a few hours away 😱.

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, and lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, 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.
