Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a day that turned out to be completely different to planned, making it even better; for a cold windy start to the day ending with clear skies, even though rain is forecast for tonight; for getting all my writing done very early this morning, having to be at a meeting in town at 9h30, with two other meetings back to back planned thereafter; for an interesting client meeting discussing an Interior refurb as well as a website overall, exciting to be part of the transformation; for a fabulous meeting with Emily O’Ryan, an impressive 23 year old working on her second book, for which she interviewed me; for being late for the next meeting, so I went to Hertex to look for wallpaper samples for the restaurant refurb, and having a bite of lunch there; for a pop in at Lazari looking for their fabulous mini chicken, leek and mushroom pies, not available but I took home some other treats; for a wonderful afternoon snooze; for a wonderful walk with Vivian Warby through Bakoven, spending lovely time on Beta Beach, each expressing our gratitudes of the day; for seeing the almost-Full Moon coming over the side of Table Mountain; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
