    I cannot wait to... (in no particular order)

    - go for afternoon tea with my daughters
    - eat a rare steak with my husband (too scared to do raw at home!)
    - attend church events with my friends and see peoples bodies rather than just their heads!

    A walk with a friend in the countryside with lunch in a pub garden.
    And go to a gallery!

    Already doing walking with more than one friend and even sat on a bench with a coffee and said friend several weeks ago just for the hell of it.
    I will also enjoy a time when we no longer ask what we are 'allowed' to do and hope to see more naked faces out and about but particularly in the shops.

    I’ll take my dog for a walk in some nearby woods about 3 miles away just for a change of scenery

    And when the Easter crowds have died down I will visit the garden centre

    As we have been shielding, it would be nice to get the wife out for a meal.
    Would love to see my daughter and grandsons, as they don't live close.
    Arrange a party, for all the big dates for my lot this year.
    And finally, it will probably be next season, go to a match at my local club.

    I still think we've got a long way to go yet, and a fourth spike either through the summer or again around Christmas. Covid doesn't care about our holidays or keeping us from one another.

    Stay safe

    Full English Breakfast at my favourite cafe.. With extra mushrooms and overcooked tomatoes so they are sloppy and you can dip your bread and butter in them.. Really miss that.. And a Ribeye steak in the Flat Iron in London Bridge with friends.

    Group ride is one of my wishes too. A nice, long group bike ride. Where everyone can share the work and enjoy the pace.
