Book tickets for the theatre
Go to the cinema, followed by a nice meal in my favourite bistro
Have my hair cut and coloured

What about you?

Go to London for a long weekend. Eat and drink myself silly and even fatter! Book some lessons and learn to play the piano. Take the grand children to the beach and have ice creams and chips! Buy some really nice clothes after I have spent the last couple of days sorting out my cupboards, drawers and wardrobe. Visit some very dear friends in Edinburgh. Test drive a Range Rover even though I cannot afford the door handle and just live!!!!!!

.......always have lots of toilet rolls in my house.

Purplepixie Thu 26-Mar-20 01:28:31

Quizqueen - Yes plenty of toilet rolls in every different colour that I can find. Oh and some kitchen roll wouldn’t go amiss right now either.

Drive back to Wales to visit my best friend

Get my hair cut and coloured first or she might not recognise me!

Go shopping in our lovely local farm shop with a coffee in their cafe afterwards

Go to the cinema to hopefully see one of the postponed films I’d planned to see

Have a meal and glass of wine in our super friendly local pub ( who I hope won’t have gone out of business)

Hopefully go to France for my cancelled holiday

Basically go back to going wherever I want again!

Being able to see the family again.

Get my hair cut.

Go out for lunches and morning coffees again.

Have fish and chips.

Go over to Melbourne for my yearly shopping trip.

Stock up on toilet paper etc. (do you have coloured rolls in England? posh!)

Buy plenty of nice soap to replace what I have used.

Just to be able to go to the shops again - don't know what you've got till it's gone!!

See my grandsons and do lots of fun activities with them.

Ohmother Thu 26-Mar-20 05:22:28

Hug my family.

Ginny42 Thu 26-Mar-20 06:09:55

Fly to my family or they fly here.

Bathsheba Thu 26-Mar-20 06:23:30

What Ohmother said. Nothing else matters more than that.

grandMattie Thu 26-Mar-20 06:28:31

Go out and MUX with people. Might have coffee out...

grandMattie Thu 26-Mar-20 06:29:29

Love to hug my family, but they live in NZ and India. Not possible..

GrannyLaine Thu 26-Mar-20 06:44:12

HUG my grandchildren like there's no tomorrow. Nothing else required here

aggie Thu 26-Mar-20 06:52:26

Forget my selfconiousness and take my rolator for a walk instead of struggling with a stick

Katyj Thu 26-Mar-20 06:53:58

Hug my grandchildren 😍

hondagirl Thu 26-Mar-20 07:22:40

Go and visit my family in New Zealand, that's if I most of the airlines haven't gone bust and the flight doesn't cost the earth!

GrannyGravy13 Thu 26-Mar-20 07:36:26

Gather all the AC, partners and GC at our home for one hell of a celebration.

I shall never take anything for granted again!!

Have a good nights sleep

BlueSapphire Thu 26-Mar-20 07:38:47

Get my hair cut and coloured.
Go out for a nice meal with the family.
Book a cruise /holiday.
Go to the cinema.
Go to a rugby match again to watch my team.
Go shopping.
But being with family is the most important.

TerriBull Thu 26-Mar-20 07:56:04

Get together with all the family, children, grandchildren, and everyone else and give them a hug.

Maybe go on one of the holidays booked later in the year, fingers crossed but bearing in mind it may not happen.

Return to the supermarket without a mask, or any fear.

Drive out to favourite parts of the countryside and coast.

Get together with friends for meals out.


Return to the gym and swimming pool.

In fact all the things we did on a day to day basis and took for granted.

NanKate Thu 26-Mar-20 08:10:17

Do silly mad dancing to Ed Sheehan with my two lovely grandsons. Give our DS an extra hug for doing everything he could to protect us.

Go to our favourite Italian Coffee Shop where they play fabulous music quietly into background.

Rebook the 3 short hols we had planned.

Be grateful for getting through this terrible nightmare.

ArtySue Thu 26-Mar-20 08:17:02

After hugging everyone I know I'll be heading for St Ives where I'll take my shoes off and wriggle my feet in the sand.

tanith Thu 26-Mar-20 08:30:39

Be ecstatic if my family come through this unscathed.

etheltbags1 Thu 26-Mar-20 08:40:51

Hug my daughter and granddaughter and go along the local beach .

Find out where I am on the list for my hip replacement which should be tomorrow and if it ismore than 3 weeks I will pay to have it done as soon as possible.
If I had done this last October when it started to really get bad, I may have been walking around in comfort now.
