Tuesday 29 June 2021, Day 2 of Level 4 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for another day of rain, rain, rain, and more to come until the weekend; for a better night’s sleep, with a very early working break in-between; for a hard-working morning; for a quick Bakoven walk at lunchtime, staying dry for half an hour; for getting my car filled up at BP President, missing the lovely Mike who was not on duty today, using slightly less than a full tank this month; for a client management meeting, organizing things for the next two weeks; for a cat food shop at Checkers, with much better service than I usually experience; for a good efficient shop at Woolies; for a good step walk in our garage; and for being healthy and free. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Not all restaurants will be open on Christmas Day or on 1 January, so I have compiled a list of the Camps Bay restaurants, with their trading days.

We wish you and your family safe travelling and beach enjoyment.

#Grateful for a stunning 30C day today, after four days of wind, the beaches in Camps Bay being jam-packed with happy swimmers and picnickers; for an amazing start to the day; for the City of Cape Town taking a first tiny step to fix the broken fence, and for removing the flattened pedestrian sign at Bali Bay 🙏; for a lovely lunch to which I was invited by Dale Kushner at the offices of film company AFS Productions on Kloof Street; for being able to leave my car parked at their offices and being able to explore the bottom end of Kloof Steeet, for a second (late afternoon) walk to the Tidal Pool, seeing a luxury bus with EFF supporters shouting out of the windows and blowing their vuvuzelas, being transported back to Hout Bay from Brackenfell 😱; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for lovely rain today, less this morning but coming down regularly and heavily this afternoon, and more forecast for tonight; for bursts of sun in-between, yet the rain ☔️ arriving so quickly that I had to take shelter at Kauai and drink a tea while waiting for the heavy rain to end ; for a very quiet start to the day, lazing in bed; for the highlight of watching ‘My Octopus Teacher’ 🐙 by Craig Foster, filmed in Simonstown, what a documentary, unable to eat octopus after watching it; for harvesting my first spinach from the veggie garden, adding it to a mushroom and port sauce I made with my pasta for supper; for dancing to DJ Fresh on Kfm; for having the 💙 of KitKat for five months 😻; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
