Wednesday 16 February 2022, Day 139 of Level 1 😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day that became increasingly better, starting with some rain and a rainbow, seen on Camps Bay Whats App Groups; for preparing for my Client Status meetings; for a brisk walk to the Theatre on the Bay to buy tickets; for assistance from Discovery Sea Point, to send through my eye test proof (not charmed when I received a message this afternoon that an error was made😱), to find Continue reading →

‘SA’s most experienced Restaurant Reviewer : accolade from IconicZA magazine!


In my ‘career’ as a writer I have been called many things by not so nice persons in the restaurant industry. It has been a wonderful experience to have new descriptors added to the collection describing me: ‘indomitable’, meaning impossible to subdue or defeat, and  ‘most experienced restaurant reviewer’, both accolades by the new IconicZA digital magazine in an article in its October issue.

Corona Gratitude 🙏

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a lovely day, with a foggy start and possibly ending with rain, according to the clouds and Kfm; for winning 350 Discovery Gameboard Points today, enabling me to buy a R100 Woolies voucher added to left l-over points from last week; for an Earl Grey tea visit and a SwitchBitch Book series Book 3 buy by Marlene’ Eggersglusz van Duuren for her friend Lisa’s birthday; for getting my work done in time today for my client meeting; for a lovely brainstorming Status meeting with my client and the chef; for a walk that turned out to be one in my garage, having forgotten to bring my mask when I went for a walk, so I thought there was a message in that, going round and round in the garage, as I did many a day when we were in Level 5 last year, amazingly earning a wow 500 points; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
