What a difference a few weeks make! These photos were taken at a breakfast catch-up with a friend just over three weeks ago. We went to Hamptons a cafe/restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean at City Beach. Leisurely breakfasts, long lunches and sit down coffees by the sea are (for now) a thing of the past although cafes and eateries can offer takeaways and home deliveries.
Our younger daughter, Mlle, arrived back from London last Friday on one of the last (for now) Qantas non-stop flights to Perth. She had to make an 11th hour decision and we are so relieved to have her back here for a while – her plans to move to Berlin in September are obviously on hold. The music industry (she works in PR) has taken a massive hit with the cancellations and restrictions. She’s currently doing mandatory self isolation for 14 days mostly in the upstairs bedroom/ensuite away from the rest of the household but we do allow her to come into the garden where we can chat at a safe distance across the courtyard! She’s 3 days in with 11 to go and fingers crossed all will be well!
We are adapting to the social distancing rules, which do change with confusing regularity. I know we are luckier than many others as we can continue to go for our walks and bike rides as long as we observe the correct distance.
Hope everyone is doing well – stay safe and take care! À bientôt!
