    Going to somewhere remote and climbing a mountain. Bouldering! I'd just started, and was really getting into it.

    I want our sausage roll place to still be in business, and obviously I want some sausage rolls :love:

    I'm gonna take the dogs for nice long walks along the river and in the woods, I'm gonna go into town and have a hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream, and I'm going to go shopping without my asbestos protection :joy:

    I can't wait to finally get my eyebrows waxed and tinted - after almost two months they're approaching werewolf territory 😅

    Oh and watching Strictly Come Dancing

    Seeing one of my teachers run the London marathon (she signed up to raise money for a hospital that is close to my heart.)

    When I am at school I won't have to just fill up my water bottle at the outdoor water fountain where the water is a bit gross or having to sneak off to the upstairs female toilets.

    I'm with you on this one.
    I do have a Nespresso machine at home but it's nice to switch it up with a costa every now and again

    See all my friends again and get hugs! I really miss hugs 

    There was nothing a good hug from my besty or grandad could solve :) 

    I really look forward to seeing my partner again it's been such a long time I haven't seen them since Valentine's that will be great!

    Simple things, bus rides, going swimming, I was meant to go to our theme park before this I look forward to that!
    Costa coffee

    But most importantly I just miss the ability to go get a coffee if I wanted or go where I wanted

    That sounds nice @Eyepatch ! The one by me isn't open yet, but I had an email from Costa saying they're opening up the stores slowly. I'm eagerly waiting for when the one near me opens!

    My work is hoping to go back to almost normal soon, we have still been open and I’ve been working, but it will be a nice change of pace even if it’s stressful at first. Plus if everyone else comes back I can hopefully stop doing three jobs all at once everyday.

    I'm looking forward to change - a changed me.
    I've spent a lot of lockdown in reflection and putting myself forward for a number of opportunities. I'm looking forward to everything returning to a new "normal" so that I can continue to be the best version of me  :3:p

    It sounds cheesy, but I just want to start getting everything back on track from friendships to life experience. And most importantly, holding the ones I love most, close.

    @BenMa I agree with you, and I don't think it's cheesy! Lockdown could be wasted in so many ways by wasting away in front of the TV or being unproductive but I too have chosen to use the time to work on myself. I respect the people who take time to work on themselves as it's probably one of the hardest things to do!

    I’m looking forward to being able to travel to England to see my partner mostly I’d say. We haven’t seen each other since valentines either.

    I’m also sort of looking forward to being able to go to cafes and restaurants again and of course to doing indoor sports again.

    I'm looking forward to eating in restaurants again, going to the spa and getting a job! I've tried to be as productive as I feel able to be during lockdown, so hopefully I'll be putting some new skills to use and continuing with new hobbies as well.

    I'm looking forward to seeing friends and family (especially my grandma who has been shielding) but also I can't wait until I never have to hear the phrases "social distancing" "unprecedented times" and "flatten the curve" again :lol:

    I just want to hug my family. My nana and grandad are shielding due to my Nana’s cancer... and I have seen my nephews from a distance but I miss being able to play with them and hug them! Feeling a bit tearful thinking about being able to hug them lol! It will be such a good moment
