When this is all over we’re going to…

I don’t know about you but I’m starting to miss all the little things I took for granted pre-lockdown. I think we all are. George seemed a little quiet yesterday and woke on Thursday feeling a little sad. I think after almost two full weeks home schooling, restricted activities and very small amounts of time spent outdoors – it may well just be having an effect on him. Until now, we’ve all coped really well. George has taken all this in his stride. So much has changed for us, for him, for our friends and family. The world. It’s a lot to take in.

George wrote a little list of all the things he wants to do when this is over. It got me thinking. There’s so many activities that sound so simple, like popping to the shops, grabbing a coffee on the way to the office or popping out to my local florist. They seem like a distant memory. I wouldn’t have thought twice about them before the Coronavirus outbreak. I do miss George’s football matches. And then there are all the things we’d been looking forward to. A weekend in the Cotswolds for Mr H’s birthday, our Eurocamp holiday in Brittany for May half term and a friends 40th birthday drinks. They’ve all been taken away.

If you had to pick one thing you’re missing from your pre-lockdown life, what would it be? We couldn’t pick just one, and so…

 

When this is all over we’re going to…

 

Family

The Beach. Trentham Gardens. Eating out at our favourite Chinese restaurant. A Cinema trip. Go to see our friends. Visit family. Climb Snowdonia. Re-book our family holiday. Go on a family bike ride. Go out for a walk, come home, go back out again and again and again.

 

George

Play football. Go to Alton Towers. Go to the seaside. Go on School trips. See baby Solenne. Go to the park. Play with friends. Go back to School. Learn a new skill. Go back to Drumming class. Go on School trips.

 

Mummy

Pick up a Skinny Vanilla Latte on the way into work. A walk in the woods at Cannock Chase. Visit the Trellis walk at Trentham Gardens. Go to my nail bar. Walk around the shops. Enjoy a chippy tea with Nanny & Grandad. Finish the garden. Meet a friend for tea and cake.

 

Daddy

Go to the hairdressers. Meet up with friends for a beer. Go to a Manchester Utd football game. Drive to the beach. Watch George play football. Eat out in a restaurant. Go to a Gig. Have a BBQ with friends.

 

And don’t get me wrong we are thankful for being safe and healthy. We are together. We have food. We are still working and we know this is temporary. We are grateful for everything the key workers are doing to keep us safe. Life is precious. We must remember not to take the things we dearly love for granted. We have so much. Be thankful. Be grateful. Be kind to each other, love one another, support everyone.
