Thursday 9 December 2021, Day 70 of Level 1 😷
Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a day turned on its head, my Thursdays usually having a status meeting afternoon, requiring a preparation morning, but as my client could not meet with me today, things turned out differently, a visit to my dentist in the Waterfront at 12h00 influencing my time plan today; for a walk through Bakoven; for finishing a Blogpost this morning; for getting an implant affixed again, it coming out in Gary’s funicular 😂; for Minsky coming back home safely this morning after a night out on the town 😻; for a shop for cat food pouches at Woolies, their afternoon treat; for getting my postal Address changed at Standard Bank, so that the statements can be sent to the apartment, the days of my Waterfront post box numbered, after having it for 30 years 😱; for a mince pie shop at Hartlief; for doing a Milkshake shoot in the blistering 28C heat at the Gibson’s Food Truck in Camps Bay, gifting some of the ‘Shakes to car guard Carmen and to Henry at the apartments; for posting for my clients this afternoon; for a Camps Bay walk, with a great sunset; and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙
My Blogpost was about Eat Out hosting its Restaurant Awards in November 2022 again, not having done so for the past 2 years!
I love going to the WCafé at the Woolies at the Waterfront for breakfast, but it was disappointing today, jam packed full, no manager, slow service, the Wifi not working (it NEVER does), and a very noisy kitchen.
I prefer going to the Garden’s Centre branch of Standard Bank due to fabulous service by Samantha. I clearly had not been there in ages, it looking completely different, there being no tellers anymore, just five desks with some having staff. One has to fill in a list and then one gets served in order of arrival. Once I got to see a consultant it was quick quick to change my address details.

I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
