Is it just me or are others missing the opportunity to be spontaneous? Pre Covid I could decide at a moment's notice to pop to the local shops. Now I have to make sure I have a mask, hand sanitiser and waterproof coat in case there's a queue and I have to stand outside and wait 15 minutes just to get a loaf of bread. If I want to visit the city centre I have to make sure I don't drink coffee beforehand, otherwise I will need the toilet and they frequently close throughout the day for a deep clean. I used to meet my friends regularly for coffee and it would often be at short notice, but now we have to look at the weather forecast and plan around that so we can sit outside. I have a gym membership and I would go there if I woke up to dreadful weather. The gym is opening up soon but I will have to book a slot and that may well have to be several days in advance. I do know that I am lucky in many ways and I probably shouldn't moan but I really am missing that previous aspect of my life.
