Operation Oysterhood: 7 April

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A friend came for coffee on my stoep this morning and brought sunflowers – a great symbol for how her company feels: bright, beautiful and happy-making.

My love also visited before going to the office and helped me with some of my work first. Two Skype meetings with authors, a visit to the post office, a few deliveries, some admin work and, in the late afternoon, I was simply exhausted.

I managed to exchange the mattresses on two of the beds in the house and now my own bed has the best available mattress. I have been meaning to do this for quite a while, so it feels like a great achievement to have this accomplished at last.

After work, my love and I went to the opening of TTK Fledglings, a new remarkable Luke Dale Roberts venture: “AN UPLIFTMENT PROGRAM | EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO LEARN TO COOK | SERVING DELICIOUS FOOD | CREATING OPPORTUNITIES | TEACHING HOSPITALITY SKILLS | DONE WITH LOVE”.

Everything was delicious, but the Japanese pancake, the beef carpaccio and the loaded fries were on another level of delectable. Finger-licking-divine.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
