Freedom….. Of Sorts


Lockdown is being eased!   Not soon enough for some. Far too soon for others.  The “Stay at Home” message has been ditched for a rather older message similar to one used in WWII ….. ” Stay Alert”.  Then it was a message to “Be Alert” for spies and maybe folk planning espionage in the community.

From tomorrow we have more freedom.  I can now go out and exercise for as long as I like, just keep your distance. I can meet one member of my family in the Park, they can also meet us in our garden, one at a time and again just keep their distance…. no family hugs.

Not only that, IF the sunshine’s I can sunbath in the Park.  So best dig out the Factor 15 sun lotion and the funny hat.

But best of all, from tomorrow…  I can sit on one of these benches without breaking the law, just don’t sit next to me otherwise we are both in trouble!

There are of course other aspects of the restrictions being lifted, but many still seem both contentious, discouraged and even unwelcome by many.

Being positive, Buster and I can walk ,with out the need to start the stop watch. We may even take a breather on a bench…. planning a longer walk I can also take a Flask with me.

The big plus is that there will be more time to listen to the birds and their spring songs.   But as always…..

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
