Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day of lots of wind and rain, and few photographs and steps 😱; for preparing for two Status meetings this morning, not getting a midday walk as it started raining at that time, and it never stopped, pouring when I had to enter Anatoli Turkish Restaurant, waiting in the car; for a spoil Status meeting, with a huge pot of Dilmah Earl Grey tea and biscuits; for collecting my rolls at Dinkel Bakery, and a Lamb Curry Dinner treat at Café Charles to share for dinner with Gary Peterson; for a delightful Cointreau tea with dinner and an apple blueberry tart with Woolies custard mmmmm…..
