    Yes the cinema and the smell of popcorn, nice meals out and shows, sounds amazing!! Greece sounds lovely, let’s hope it’s sooner rather then later but of course safe!

    Yes, I keep thinking about this! I have screenshot a few items of clothes I like from various shops on my computer/mobile ready for Black Friday to see if I can get them any cheaper hehe I love a good bargain. But I also hope I get the right sizes, I measure myself but even then all shops sizes are quite different!

    A holiday, as I haven't been on holiday for many, many years.
    Last year, I was invited to go to the USA to watch the November Macy's parade, but it had to be cancelled. The airline tickets are now 'open' so I may still get to go to US, but it won't be to the parade, as I booked the 4 days off when I was a relief school escort, but as a permanent escort, holidays can't be taken in term time.

    I like the theatre very much, we have an old small theatre, which is great, it's cosy and I've seen some great plays there.

    Seeing my sister again (Brother-in-law has lots of health issues and we don't live near each other).
    Panto! My daughter and I belong to a local theatre group and we always put on a panto in early January which obviously isn't happening this year and we miss our 'panto family' and the fun it brings.
    Cinema and Theatre (missed seeing The King and I last April :()

    Just putting in a word for things to be thankful for / good 2020 things - my puppy! She has brought lots of fun, laughter and naughtiness to the house.:happy:

    Unless you are in Manchester, Liverpool , Bristol or Kent your wish can come true!! If you're in IoW, Cornwall or the Scilly Isles then it's game on.
    Hope you can lose your freedom and not be fearful...
