To Do List Post Lockdown

Sunday, 31 May 2020

Sure, there is no real end date for lockdown as of yet. New potential updates on what's going to happen going forwards seem to be coming up rather a lot at the moment in the UK. With some social distancing measures eased already, as I'm sure you're all aware, I thought to make a list of all the things that I am looking forward to doing, when normality makes a come back, in whatever shape or form that may be. I 100% believe that a number of us will have a new found sense of gratitude and appreciation for the little things, and the freedom to be able to travel where ever we fancy, we whoever we fancy. I completely understand that these places have been shut and restrictions have been put into place for our own safety, and I commend/appreciate all those working extremely hard on the front line helping individuals battle the virus. 

Seeing friends and family
I am more than sure that this will be a top priority for the majority of individuals. I can't wait to be reunited with my favourite people.

Go to the supermarket and be able to pop in and out as we please
No having to wait in a queue as the number of people allowed in the shop are limited. No having to wonder whether we will be able to find the items that we want. If late in the evening, I fancy some chocolate, we are all able to go and grab some and be back home quickly.

Visit National Trust sites
One of my favourite things is to go for a wonder at a National Trust site. So much beauty and adventure can be had at their locations. Especially at this time of the year when most flowers are in bloom, everything looks so lovely. The thought of being able to go somewhere, without the initial thought of, 'will it be too busy?' or 'are there going to be too many people around?' will be momentous. 

Visit the cinema
I have actually missed going to the cinema. I love to go and see a new release and chat about it on the drive on the way home. 

Potter around the shops
I miss just going to my local shops and having a little wander. Looking into their display windows and browsing. 

I am in no rush for this to become a reality, but the thought of planning another city break, or little trip makes me really excited. I can't believe that Sam and I visited 11 places last year. I feel so grateful to have had the experiences that we did last year, and can't wait for more when everything is safe. 

What're you looking forward to doing when normality comes back around?

    1. Me too! National Trust have actually started to reopen some of their sites, so fingers crossed we can visit soon. Typical that now the weather has changed :( x

  3. I miss wondering around shops too, that used to be one of my favourite things to do!
