|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 reaction was a qualified resignation, thinking this would be the best method to defeat the Covid-19 virus.||Social activities such as indoor and outdoor bowls, walking with friends, going to the shops and not feeling guilty and of course the WI both here and in Suffolk where I am a dual member.||I've learnt to Zoom, help keep a WI going despite all the restrictions, and my typing skills have improved no end!||Lockdown has not been easy or difficult, just very frustrating.||Take off my mask when out and about. Give my daughter and family a big hug. Visit my sister in York, my friend in the Lake District.||I've learnt that patience is a virtue that I don't always have when I see the large numbers of people not folllowing 'the guidance'.!|
It's important to keep talking by whatever means are available, eg Zoom/Facebook, the telephone, newsletters and even snailmail.
