It's it nice to be out and about a little bit more.
From weeks at home, with only a few essential trips out of the house, to the easing of restrictions to mean, this weekend I was able to catch up with a friend I haven't seen in a while.
And what's better, we were able to get out of the house and meet at a local cafe.
We drove around a little bit before finding one that was open - I would recommend ringing and booking, but we weren't that organised - and were able to get a table.
Just 10 people were allowed to sit at any one time, and it was a smaller COVID-19 menu, but still just as delicious as always. We had to put our names and contact numbers down first, in case people became sick and we needed to be contacted, and hand sanitiser was available before we went to our table.
But it was nice. If this is the 'new normal' then it's really not too bad if you are wanting to catch up for coffee and lunch with someone.
Of course it's hurting those that can't open for just 10 people, though with the new rules announced late last week, 50 people will mean it's a lot more viable for pubs and clubs.
And while things may not be the same as they were for a long time, if we look out for each other and do the right thing, then we're heading in the right direction.
What did you do this weekend that you haven't been able to do for awhile? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great Sunday,
