    The first thing we'll be doing is booking one or more holidays in Greece, probably Kefalonia first. Then it'll be arranging the drink-up with ex-colleagues that got cancelled in March. And then it'll probably be visiting the family, though as none of them are within a one hour's drive and we don't see much of them anyway, I guess it'll just "happen" rather than us rushing off to do it. So nothing "spectacular" - I'm retired anyway, so I'm pretty much doing in lockdown what I would have done anyway.

    Hopefully, after lockdown there will be enough staff back at work, so that I can have a few days off, far from the madding crowd, and a lie in...

    I want to cuddle my Grandson, hug my Daughter and visit with my parents. See my friend and her dogs. Then I'd like to see a few films at the cinema and have dinner somewhere other than here. I might let my husband come with me lol. Oh and my preferred supermarket to have available delivery slots and become mostly reliable so I can use them again.

    I want to be able to walk over Sainsburys, not have to queue outside, and once having wandered round the shop for yonks, as normal,
    Be able to go to my two favourite cashiers and have the choice of which I have a good old natter with.
    Not be told which 1 to go to, cos it's always my luck I get ''The wrong side'' to unload on to. I have to have the conveyor belt on my left. It's what I'm used to.

    If hairdressers open of 4th July (not a chance) I'll be 5 haircuts overdue. I don't think I'll stand a chance of getting an appointment for months!

    See son . Both him coming to visit us here, and drives down to Worcester with a stay- over at his house.
    Hopefully be able to go for meal and drinks with him. But also looking forwards to him showing us around the nice countryside walks he's discovered on his doorstep whilst being furloughed.
    Plan for future holidays . Not really got much hope of getting away abroad next year though..

    Mrs Mikinton cut mine a couple of days ago and, from what I can see, does not appear to have done a bad job - at least, no one laughed in the two shops I went into.

    As well as first thing we will be doing is seeing son..... Enjoying a walk out to the local pub.
    Also book to have my eyebrows waxed properly and correct the odd sides. Not had to do them myself since before wearing reading glasses . Now found I've needed the reading glasses on to see which ones to attack, but couldn't get to them with my glasses on. So had to sort of guess....

    Shell island, I should have been planning the second trip by now, and a pair of glasses, since the shutdown I've been managing with a pair with the lens out of the right side and 3 pairs of reading glasses, God I miss varifocals.
