It’s strange how that statement seems so foreign nowadays. It seems our lives are forever changed because of the wretched Covid.
I have been cooped up in the house for what feels like an eternity (I know you can relate). So when I heard Boris say we could meet 1 person from another household, I did a flip of happiness.
Just before the first lockdown last year, I got a new colleague in the office I was working in at the time, and I knew we would get on. We chatted all through the lockdowns and have become friends. She is a beautiful person, both inside and out and I’m grateful to have met her before all this madness started and gotten to know her through it.
When I moved to the area, I knew she wasn’t far and was very excited about having a friend nearby, (my 2 best friends are in London and Southampton, not helpful to say the least). We made a plan to go for a walk in a nearby park with her baby (it was baby’s 2month birthday on the day). I was thrilled.
Oh to be out in the sunshine and with a friend who I hadn’t seen in almost a year, it was glorious. I can honestly say that that hour and a half with Chloe and Poppy has been the highlight of my week!!! We pottered around the park, had a coffee and chatted about guys, baby stuff and hilarious moments.
By the way, if you want to follow her blog it’s here and trust me you won’t regret it. I look forward to her posts every month ☺️
There’s nothing quite like some quality time with a friend to make you believe in life again. I cannot wait for our next wonder around and when things have settled down a cuddle with the adorable Poppy.
Have you had a chance to meet up with anyone outside your household yet? Or what has been your highlight this week?? I’d love to hear all about it ☺️☺️
Until next time…
