This time a year ago… we had NO IDEA what was coming our way.
This time a year ago… 125,000 lives in the UK and 2.5 million lives worldwide were being lived, now tragically cut short by covid.
This time a year ago… I was expecting a short sharp lockdown. I expected we’d close 2 weeks before Easter and then be back after the holidays, 4 weeks in total. I never imagined the kids wouldn’t go back to class that school year.
This time a year ago… toilet paper was scarce. Shopping delivery and click and collect slots were non existent.
This time a year ago… hand washing and sanitising were not the norm. Masks in the street were peculiar.
This time last year… I’d never heard of Joe Wicks and I still hated exercise!
This time a year ago… I could go where I wanted without a second thought. Eating out, popping to the shops, visiting the cinema, a day out at a tourist attraction: all could be last minute or long term plans. Just freedom!
This time a year ago… I was able to hug my parents. My children could sit on their laps. We could have a meal together, pop around to each other’s houses, the kids could sleep over.
This time a year ago… I had no idea how many types of virtual meeting were possible, now I’ve done Zoom, Teams, Google Meet!
