Sweet Service Award goes to Computicket Camps Bay ; Sour Service Award goes to Discovery Insure!

 

The Sweet Service Award goes to Computicket at the Theater on the Bay, and its star staff member William. I was looking to buy one ticket for a Mozart Symphony Performance at the City Hall, receiving the bad news telephonically that there was only one last seat available right at the back of the Hall.

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for another summer day forecast at 24C which became a 28C one; for a very relaxed day, starting off with a tea and croissant treat with Vivian Warby at Firefly, being addressed by Daniella Kisten of Minted Ginger, supplier of Chef uniforms and aprons from a neighbouring table, leading to an interesting restaurant catch-up, promising each other a tea date; for a beautiful turquoise blue ocean today, very calm and almost flat; for hearing the ‘Love my Life’ song by Robbie Williams for the first time, with amazing words, a song of self-affirmation, including ‘I am Free’, something I’ve never expressed gratitude for before, #thankyou Linda Gotlieb 🌹; for being able to see The Funeral of Prince Philip at 4 pm our time, finding it by chance via a German TV channel, so moving, despite its small size, with its ending of William, Harry, and Kate walking together in leaving the Chapel ❤️; for a power walk up the 100 Houghton Steps, gaining 300 points, bringing me closer to my goal of points to achieve by the end of this month; for the amazing surprise of there being almost no litter, having come armed with a garbage bag; for my Bakoven sunset pic of earlier this week being posted by Daily Maverick today (Photograph above); and for being happy, healthy, and free. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Thank you 2020 for everything that you have taught me, my Top 20 of 2020!

 

I was very excited about the year 2020, having the 20th as a birthdate, and it being my lucky number. Despite the tragedy of the Corona Virus pandemic and the inconvenience of the Lockdown regulations at times, 2020 turned out to be one of my best ever, learning from it and growing through it.

On Facebook I have posted daily Corona Gratitudes, for the small and big things that have come my way in the past 9 months. There are far too many to mention, so I have turned this post into a Top 20 of 2020, an unforgettable year for all of us. Continue reading →
