    My parents are enjoying the fact they can go out again, they only go to do the food shop or the local shops but it's "out" for them and as they have COPD they can't go far anyway. Hopefully it's all moving towards normality soon. They've been lucky to have such lovely neighbours who have been doing their food shops for them during shielding, shows how people rally together when needed (with the odd scumbag exceptions), they're hesitant to try online grocery shopping so i've been getting things delivered to them sometimes as treats, which they find amazing, that someone on the other side of the world can order food for them and get it delivered to their house.

    We've been lucky here in Australia, things are almost back to normal where I live in Queensland, we are still supposed to keep distances etc and sanitise when possible, restaurants have seated dining (not at capacity though) and sports games seem back to normal (not that i do sports). We even went to an art thing at the weekend in a local botanical gardens, although the sheer amount of people there made me feel uneasy, I guess it will take a while before the feeling of wanting to not be near large groups goes away completely, if at all. I've never been a big groups person.

    Nice to hear that there have been no deaths reported in England - perhaps the light at the end of the tunnel is closer than we realised? Ironic that all the deaths were in Wales - it's a bit like only East Anglia having those deaths while everywhere else don't have any to report.

    Just thought I would also mention that I managed to get a next day Tesco online delivery after I booked it, for the first time since before the pandemic started in Britain - booked Sunday, delivered Monday - and all of the items ordered arrived as well. I think that this is an indication that we are getting out of this at last.

    I don't mind wearing a medical mask, but I don't like the tightening of social distancing rules. If everyone followed the precautions (at least masks), then you could continue your normal life. But the world is full of enthusiastic idiots(( I prefer to stay at home most of the time because of them.

    Department stores like John Lewis have been teetering on the brink of collapse for many years. Covid was just a final nail in the coffin.
    So many things have changed, some of which are very welcome - like working from home instead of a horrible rail commute to an office.
