Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a sunny day, feeling much warmer even if it was only 16C max; I was excited that Vivian Warby agreed to meet for tea, so we chose Firefly Café, it becoming a breakfast, with lots of catching up 💙; for walking up to Clifton to clear up around a bin below Camps Bay High School which was surrounded with litter when I drove past it yesterday, but a dear angel had tidied up most of it already, so I picked up the litter remains; for Camps Bay being nice and busy, visitors clearly loving sitting in the sun of the restaurants on the strip; for a sun snooze on the terrace; for a walk through Bakoven; and for being happy and healthy.

#Grateful for a most fabulous day, everything just falling into place; for being so happy with my 🐱 family; for the rain and clouds clearing after rain overnight; for a busy work morning; for the most stunning rainbow 🌈 I saw on my way home, when it started raining, but the end result pic of it was so amazing that it did not matter at all that I got wet; for a good walk to Clifton Fourth Beach; for tea with Debbie, the owner of Sorbet Camps Bay, who showed me the new protocols in her shop; for having the most amazing luck with my photographs, the sunset ones earlier this week, and the Rainbow one today, posting them in Facebook Groups which are just about pretty pictures, not having known about them before, having massively high member numbers (in the 30000s) so it is not hard to get over 1000 likes for a photograph (In my next life I’m coming back as a photographer 😱); for boldly and professionally writing to Sandak-Lewin, our apartment block managing agents, documenting all the issues we have with our Portfolio Manager, a huge relief when I got this off my chest; for dancing 💃 to Kfm out of happiness this afternoon; for a lovely honest chat with Stuart Bailey; and for being very happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
