Corona Gratitude 🙏 

#grateful for a smooth flowing working morning, preparing for two Status meetings; for gaining 2 Discovery Gameboard plays, and 370 Miles, as well as a Woolies R100 voucher; for a successful call to Discovery to assist me in getting the Woolies voucher number as I’d forgotten to add it to my wallet, and for correcting an error when Discovery charged me 900 Miles for the voucher and not 750, as they have done for the past year; for a mini Pedi at Sorbet in The Point Mall, and seeing the Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for gorgeous unexpected rain this afternoon although my Ant App certainly predicted it, and it being 10C cooler today; for a busy writing morning; for seeing my cleaning team only briefly, as our walk together was rained out this afternoon; for all the wonderful music to which I have been able to dance to on the Kfm FlashDrive show of Carl Wastie and Zoe Brown, keeping me sane throughout all Levels during Lockdown, doing its last 2020 broadcast this afternoon; for a lovely relaxing Pedicure at Sorbet Camps Bay, getting a 50% birthday discount; for getting two Discovery Gameboard plays, bagging another Woolworths voucher of R100 at the cost of 750 Miles (R75), and finding that I have a spare unused one; for a lovely cool walk through deserted Camps Bay this afternoon, checking with each restaurant if they will be open on all the public holiday days; for a one hour afternoon deep sleep after a very short sleep last night; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
