Tuesday 13 April 2021, Day 44 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for the perseverance in spending almost all day writing the lengthy Review of the new Grand Pavilion, at which Gary Peterson and I ate yesterday; for a quick walk to Pick n Pay to post my SwitchBitch book to TJ Strydom, he writing the Koos Bekker biography; for a quick shop at Woolies, where the Wifi didn’t work, but one of the Manager gave me a Wifi hotspot from his phone 🙏; for a spontaneous small Pedi at Sorbet, having a gap; for early dinner at Anatoli Turkish Restaurant with Katie Friedman, to try its Restaurant Week Menu, running until 2 May; for the surprise in bumping into Jürgen Muess once again at the restaurant (Donoven Hammond Gloy can you believe this?) and for a Facebook Friend Sarie Spryt from the Garden Route dining there too and recognizing me 😱; for getting home just before Loadshedding started; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

#Grateful for yet another beautiful day, at 23C, with no wind; for a busy writing day, feeling cross-eyed at the end of the afternoon; for two meetings cancelled, giving me more time and space to finish my work ahead of the weekend; for enjoying setting up my new iPad, luckily having all my passwords on hand; for a short snooze this afternoon; for a lovely peaceful walk with Vivian Warby, sitting at the Tidal Pool, so grateful for the sunset and catching up on each other’s day; for a walk to Bakoven after Viv left; for a very successful Blog week, with very good readership of my posts, especially the one of yesterday about KLEIN JAN having opened in the Kalahari; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
