Sunday 11 April 2021, Day 42 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a very relaxed and calm day; for getting work finished, addressing a feedback email which needed diplomacy; for having my cats sharing my bed when I write in it, Minsky being lights out after another late night of gallivanting; for a sleep catch up; for a snooze on the terrace on a lovely sunny 23 C day; for a power walk that I didn’t think I’d have the energy for, tackling the 100 steps of Houghton steps, and incorporating the Camps Bay Promenade, very busy, DJs at Mynt, Caprice, The 41 and Tigers Milk trying to compete for the loudest and best music 😱; for earning 300 Discovery points; for a beautiful sunset; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Monday 1 March 2021, Day 1 of Level 1, Day 341 of Lockdown 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for having a relaxed day; for having written my Blogpost for today last night after the President’s Speech; for a few drops of rain after thunder in the distance; for Henry helping me buy my first airtime/data via the Vodacom App, much cheaper than buying it via my Standard Bank App; for a walk through Bakoven, looking for a spade which Imtiaz had left at the public toilets 😱; for an afternoon snooze, still needing to catch up on weekend sleep; for a walk to Camps Bay to collect my Maverick 168 which Odwa had kept for me, not having more energy than walking as far as Mynt, picking up lots of litter left over from yesterday; for the wow 500 Discovery points I earned nevertheless, 15400 points so far this year, perhaps getting far more speed in my new Adidas shoes; for a catch up sunset snack chat on my terrace with Jenny Stephens; for my Bestie Llewellyn registering the website address www.whaletalesblog.com for me; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

#Grateful for a lovely relaxed day, at 24C, the South Easter blowing now; for a productive working morning; for a surprise call from a former Camps Bay guest house neighbour in Camps Bay, needing a Social Media Manager, giving my day a pep; for a late afternoon walk to Clifton Fourth Beach and back, and for little litter along the way; for a power nap; for a beautiful sunset; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for the final step of the Hermanus House Headache having been reached, with the transfer taking place today, ending a 5 1/2 year nightmare, once again with thanks to Johan Prins; for the rain that came down as if in cloudbursts this morning and this afternoon, getting poor KitKat sopping wet both times, but sunny for the rest of the day; for a relaxed stress-free day; for a lovely cup of tea and chat with Emma at The 41; for meeting our brand new team of Camps Bay Car Guards, neatly dressed in blue jackets, distanced a few meters apart on Victoria Road; for writing and sending a proposal which I had been procrastinating about; for seeing the newly renovated Café Caprice; for seeing that the City of Cape Town has removed the tree stump outside Mynt; for a lovely looong catch up call with my Alex ❤️; and for being very happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
