|What was your reaction when lockdown was announced?||What have you missed most, apart from family & friends?||What have you been doing? Have you learnt something new or unusual?||Has lockdown been difficult or easy, could you get used to this way of life?||What is the first thing you will do/like when life is back to normal?||Anything else you'd like to say about your lockdown experience?|
|My first thoughts were 'What does it mean, what will the future be like?' I was aware that it wouldn't be a 5 minute job, but I didn't expect 18 months.||Doing normal stuff, beiong allowed to shop when and where I liked, WI meetings!! Plus other groups and organisations that I belong to. I feel that I missed out, deprived even.||Sewing, I have returned to dressmaking, I have made myself a coat. Walking, I now walk an hour and half (10K) daily; when I started on 23 March 2020 I could manage 20 minutes and was then in pain and unable to go any further; I now have. no pain and I can do so much more.||On the whole, it's been easy, not much difference from being retired.||Take the family out for a big meal, we usually celebrate all birthdays etc by going out for a meal, so we have a lot of eating to catch up on!! |
Visit my sister, I haven't seen her for so long, we usually visit each other at least monthly.
|It has made me sad, I lost three friends during lock-up and couldn't attend their funerals, that made me angry. It made me annoyed that the media always has to blame someone, I am not political but whatever actions the government chose, it was condemned by the press.|
