Thursday 6 January 2022, Day 98 of Level 1, birthday of Alex von Ulmenstein and Mullerie Taljaard 🌹🌹

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a beautiful 27 C degree day, making Camps Bay very busy, with a very strong late afternoon South Easter, meaning it will be even warmer tomorrow; for a birthday call to my Alex, starting to plan his visit to Cape Town in 15 days ❤️; for preparing for my client meetings this afternoon; for a successful visit to the Civic Center, to renew my car license, but annoyed that one has to enter from the back of the building without any signage, and answer numerous questions just to be allowed in, for being able to jump the queue of persons who had waited for 90 minutes into the red Continue reading →

Sweet Service Award goes to The Lawns; Sour Service Award goes to TELKOM!

 

The Sweet Service Award goes to The Lawns at The Roundhouse in Camps Bay, for its excellent service in looking after our table of about 15 on Wednesday, at a meeting and end-of-year- function for the Management Committee of the Camps Bay & Clifton Ratepayers Association on which I serve.
