Well, following Boris's address yesterday (which I'm not commenting on, everyone has their own opinions and mine are my own), our lives are not going to change significantly. Except for one thing - on Wednesday we will drive to the beach with Betty, for the first time since lockdown. Whether or not we get out of the car remains to be seen.....if it's busy - which it rarely is but who knows now?! - we won't be walking on the beach. We'll then carry on to the supermarket for shopping - as usual, husband (and Betty) will stay in the car whilst I go in by myself.
If the beach isn't crowded, then we will start going a couple of times a week, but whether we actually get out and walk will be dependent each time on the number of people there. I have no desire to get too close to people, or to walk amongst crowds.
Lots of people are saying on social media this morning that they don't understand why they're being told they can go to work or go out more to exercise, but they can't meet up with their families and friends. It seems obvious to me - you don't generally hug and kiss your workmates or strangers in parks, you'd keep your social distance. But would you stay socially distant from your family/friends? I think the temptation to grab them for a great big hug after so long apart would be too great. And therein lies the danger of infection. Unless each of you wears a Hazmat suit before cuddling!
It's quite bright here this morning, but very breezy and cold, such a pronounced difference in temperature. Not a day for going to the beach, even if it was allowed today! (Wonder why Boris said Wednesday and not from today? Seems a bit arbitrary). Bit of housework this morning, then some cardmaking this afternoon, I think.
