Having Sunday lunch with Son and Grandchildren or a barbecue with them at ours. Going to stay with Daughter and Grandchildren who live further away, and having a meal together and stargazing with a glass of wine in their hot tub. They both live out of town.
Going away in the caravan, two breaks have been cancelled, Easter at St. Neots and a 1940s week-end in Woodhall Spa  :-\
Having a good old natter with my Sister and my volunteer work at Heritage Centre.
Oh and a visit to the hairdressers.
But, we count ourselves lucky that that the moment, non of our Family and friends have been affected by Covid-19 up to now, fingers crossed that it stays that way.

I can't wait until I can walk outside our house without feeling guilty.

Why do I keep asking myself these sorts of questions?  When I went to the shop for a loaf of bread, was that my exercise for the day or can I have another walk?  How far can I drive to do my shopping?  Is it acceptable that I drive past four supermarkets to get to my regular one?  Why do I have to go to work for one day per month - can't they wait until this is all over?

You appear to be over-stressing. Chill out. Worry is the negative form of thought and isn't good for you!. However keep safe and in Welsh - cadwch yn saff.

Sit on my favourite bench in my own backyard because I choose to, instead of sitting on my favourite bench in my own backyard because the rules say to stay at home.

Obviously meeting up with family and friends again. Collecting the big hug that my 14 year old grandson has promised me - will make sure he keeps his word even if he towers above me.

Then just the simple things in life that we took for granted before lockdown. Being able to do what we want when we want without having to think about it first.

It will be worth the sacrifice if we can all come through this safely.

Take care,

I can't wait to meet up in real time/place with family and friends I've known for so many years ... and hope that they're all still there.
I can't wait to get into the car and go somewhere ... anywhere.
I can't wait to go to a theatre or opera, complete with a drink and chat in the bar.
I can't wait to simply stroll somewhere, for no good reason...
I can't wait for a news broadcast that needs to make no mention at all of Coronavirus /Corvil19 or whatever it's name is next.
I can't wait ... but we have to.

They are saying in the uk, please can we book staycations when this is all over to help the tourism industry rather than go abroad. I'd head to Cornwall if I could , though suspect it might be a tad full later this year!
