Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 46 of Level 3 Adjusted, 10 February 2021.



Wednesday 10 February 2021, Day 46 of Level 3 Adjusted, Day 341 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a relaxed smooth-flowing organized day; for no wind at all, on a 27C day; for a brisk uphill walk with Imtiaz, from Victoria Road in Bakoven  to Ingleside Road and back, giving me a good Cardio workout and 300 points; for 2 Discovery Gameboard plays just after midnight and just before Loadshedding, not getting enough points to buy a voucher;  for receiving just over R500 back from Discovery Insure for good driving and lower petrol usage; for getting some of my work for tomorrow done today; for receiving a R300 voucher from Royal Canin for kitten food, but how to cash it in is still a riddle; for a R50 discount voucher from Checkers60 which I used to buy Whiskas pouches, the favorite of my Kits, my total saving being R15 as they charge R35 delivery…. 😱; for an early morning call from Barbara Lenhard, who is back in Cape Town with her Flo for a few weeks, arranging a dinner date; for another walk during Loadshedding this afternoon, and using the time to do some non-internet admin; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙

My Blogpost today was about my dinner at NV-80 Grill & Bar in Sea Point a few weeks ago, good timing in having met owner Victor Gonçalves on Monday.

NV-80 Bar & Grill pays tribute to two Gonçalves brothers and their restaurant history!

In getting my papers together for my passport renewal I found a CV my mother had handwritten, so sorry that I didn’t have it when I wrote my SwitchBitch Book series.

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, and extended but relaxed on 1 February, 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.
