So, currently we may be in lockdown, or we may be partially out, then again we may be easing restrictions, or not , does anyone actually know? One thing is certain in all this uncertainty, Boris has no idea what’s going on!
So, where are we then, Covid is still around, and still has the potential to be problematic. There are still local spikes, and likely to be more, and there is the potential for a second wave. These issues will remain until an effective vaccine is introduced and rolled out to the population. The trouble with Covid is it is a “new” virus and as such it’s behaviour and long term viability is still relatively unknown, as such no one can predict how long the virus will be problematic in a population. So, caution is still the name of the game, good hand washing is a great weapon ( as all clinical staff know), keep on practising the fine art of social distancing, and the wearing of face coverings as directed, together we can overcome this!
On to happier things, our world is opening up,a bit, we can shop where we wish, we can go to pubs and restaurants ( not quite as before, but we can go), we can have a bit more of a social life. There are still no cinemas, theatres are really restricted, and indoor gigs are currently not viable due to the restrictions. The gigs and festivals are the thing I miss the most, we don’t just go for the music, we go for the company, a chance to meet up with friends from across the country, to hug , chat, sing and dance with friends – that’s what I miss the most!
Things will get back to the usual normal that we all know and love, we’ll get the chance to dance at the front of the stage to our favourite musicians, or in my case, dance and take photos. It may not be this year, but it will come back – we’ll make sure it does!!
Stay strong everyone, thanks for reading my wittering, look after each other, respect each other, and most of all, love each other!
