Lets be honest, I’ve spent about 98% of lockdown thinking about all the things I’ll get to do again once things return to ‘normal’. We had SO many plans that have been cancelled, from weddings at home and abroad, to road trips, to weekends away and even little things like meeting our friends little boy for the first time or celebrating our 2 year anniversary. So I thought I’d talk a little about the things I’m going to do as soon as it’s feesable and safe to be out and about in society again.
Mini Road Trip.
One thing I absolutely love about my relationship with Chris is that he’s up for jumping in the car and going somewhere new to explore. We had so many weekend trips and even a long 10 day road trip to Ireland that we’ve had to cancel so I want nothing more than to pick a place, grab a drive through coffee and go explore somewhere new together. We’ve been dying to explore more of Wales and head down south to discover the Jurassic Coast too! I miss taking photos of pretty places!
Making Meal Plans.
It seems like lockdown is a miles away from being over but I can’t wait for the day to start going for meals out again. It’s looking like our 2 year anniversary will be taking place at home this year which means when this is all over we’ll be booking a very delayed fancy meal somewhere to make up for it! I’ve also been meaning to go for afternoon tea with my friend Lizzie for forever so I’d love to book that in ready to see her after all this is over! SquareMeal offer a great booking service for booking resturants, events and parties and we’ll 100% be using this to not ony book our anniversary meal but also find places to eat on our next road trip, as it has all the options for price, food hygiene rating and location on the website, which is super handy when you’re exploring a new area and don’t know where to eat! They’re also currently offering resturant standard recipes for use during lock down if you can’t wait to get back to your favourite resturants!
Warner Brothers, Harry Potter Studio Tour.
Chris actually bought me tickets for Christmas last year and so far we haven’t been able to use them! I can’t wait to book ourselves into this tour and see his face when we walk through those doors to the Great Hall. I haven’t been for a few years so there is new areas for me to explore too! I want to buy chocolate frogs, pins, jumpers and wands and make Chris try Butterbeer and see his reaction, because spoilers, I totally hated it !
Hanging Out With Friends.
I don’t care where or what we’re doing, I just can’t wait to see my friends and work collegues faces again. I want to talk to them in the kitchen with a cuppa, I want to hug them and have a beer with them in the pub. I want to hear what they’ve been up to at the weekend and have them around for BBQ’s in the garden. I want to hang out at their houses and watch disney films and order pizza.
What are you looking forward to after lockdown?
Lockdown I know you’re neccasary but jeez I can’t wait for you to be over so I can go explore again, wear things other than leggings and maybe, just maybe start wearing make up again. I’d like to go to the super market more than once every 2 weeks and maybe get a cheeky McDonalds again. I’m literally counting down the days until I can book a trip to DisneyLand Paris…
Let me know what you can’t wait to do again after lockdown in the comments, as I’d love to hear what you’re missing, so I can also add them to my list!
Hope you’re doing ok!
