One Year Later

Today marks a year since the UK went into its first lockdown. A lockdown anniversary, if you will. I remember going into work and not knowing what was going to happen but still thinking that this would probably all be over in a matter or weeks or months at the most. It was such a weird and eerie time back then. Almost everything shut, long queues for people to get into the supermarket, people panic buying pasta and toilet paper, customers decked out in gloves and aprons. It felt so different to this lockdown. Back then you could really imagine the world was ending, but there's a lot more normality this time. Still a far cry from normal, of course, but closer to it.

I still don't know how long it will be before things get back to truly normal, if indeed they ever do.

And I don't know when I'll get back to normal, or what that will even be for me. I was never hugely sociable before but I did love the trips that I did take and I worry that I won't even have those any more.

But who knows. No one can say what's going to happen. Things might go back to normal and I'll be posting about my upcoming holiday this time next year. Or we could have a third wave and I'll be marking a second year of lockdown. Who knows?
