« on: Tuesday 23 June 20 18:05 BST (UK) »
From the beginning of July, in about a week, many aspects of life in England are going to be looking more sort-of normal.

What a activities are you most look forward to?

Well, as the Significant Other was identified as high-risk at the start, we'll still be keeping ourselves very much to ourselves.

At the moment I'm trying to work out if and when our Local History Group can meet again - most of our members are elderly, and the room we normally use isn't very big, so one metre distancing may prove a problem.

I'm very much looking forward to buying a decent pair of shoes, as my favourite pair have collapsed: and a pint in a riverside pub.

Things that I hope won't change:  during lockdown I managed to persuade the afore-mentioned Local History Group to start a monthly newsletter (I've been pushing for this for two years!) and I'm hoping we can continue with this once we're back to normal.

Something I still won't be allowed to do!!

I will be able visit my daughter and family, even stay overnight. But I won't be able to give my grandaughter a big hug, something I haven't done for nearly 4 months. And I will have to keep 1 metre away from them all at all times, even suggested that a face covering might be advised.

But it's a lot better than what we've been used to since 23 March.

Regards Margaret

Modified: I wish this had been brought in before said grandaughter returned to school. The family had all been at home for the past 3 months, she started school last week. So the risk has increased already when we meet up.

A haircut not had mine done since December. I had surgery in the new year followed by lockdown so I was unable to get it done.

The week before lockdown started I was thinking about having my hair cut ( for the first time in ten years), but I don't think I'll bother!

We are still wondering if it is possible to waltz, quickstep and tango whilst remaining 1 metre apart.   ;D;D

Mike, and Mazi.

The back sway in the tango could be particularly challenging!

(A move known to my parents, who taught ballroom dancing, as "Dip your head in my cocoa")

I can't say that I'm ready yet to come out of hibernation fully. Up to now we've abiding by all the guidelines getting all our groceries by click and collect. We only open the front door to ourselves.

I went to the butcher's today again, for the second time. He has a "one in, one out" system. That was very good.

I imagine we have to ease ourselves back into near-normality. I must admit, it's a bit scary, but I understand that we need to do it.

As a couple, who presumably live together, the 1 metre + rule doesn't apply to you does it? You just won't be able to take part in a Gentleman's Excuse Me.  ;D
