How has lockdown been for you?

I read of somebody this morning feeling sad because she was woken up by the traffic instead of the birdsong for the first time in months.

I was in town at lunchtime and many people remarked on how great it was to see some life back on the streets.

And this evening I heard someone else describe how the elation they felt on Friday when they heard of restrictions being eased turned to dejection today at the realisation that we were another step closer to normal and this time being over.

Because for some people the last few months have been bliss. But for others they have been really difficult. And others still have found the whole thing very confusing.

But many have been able to find some positive out of it. The quiet, the still, the calm perhaps. The slower pace of life. Time.

So now, as the pace of things begins to pick up again there are two questions. What elements of the last few months do you want to keep, and how are you going to do that?
