doing again forward most looking

What are you most looking forward to doing again?
#1
As we move into Phase 1 of the lockdown easement, what are the things you are most looking forward to being permitted to do again? For me:

— Exercise outside of the scheduled times. 
Not being allowed out until after 8pm is really inconvenient because you only get about 30 minutes before it gets dark! Can't wait until this is lifted.

— Regular shops being open. 
There are plenty of things I need from the China Shop and other places which I've obviously had to do without, because there's no internet shopping out here, especially now...

— Flight availability.
Hasn't been a daily issue, of course, but it will be nice to know we can leave if we have to!

What are you desperate to reclaim in the wake of Coronavirus?

A care free day at the lagoons in El Cotillo, being able to go in the sea to cool down from time to time without having to appear to be practicing to swim the English Channel and without having to worry that we might be over 1km away from home. Simple souls!

What phase will this be included in?

Probably Phase 3, I think? Which we likely won't see until June 8th, but I don't know at what speed things will happen here vs the mainland on account of how different things are here in terms of infection rate, etc. Maybe they will use us for a test study.

I think they are focusing on things that will stimulate the economy— I am certainly far less risk to anyone doing an hour's brisk walk by the seaside between 11am and noon than I am sitting between noon and 4pm in a coffee shop, but one is restricted and one is not. The answer why is pretty obvious. 

"Simple pleasures" will probably the last to return, unfortunately.  Sad

My wife cut my hair twice in lockdown John, thank god I had clippers in the house.

I'm actually quite nervous at going out and about as it will seem very alien as we've been prisoners for 8 weeks, but there are many things I am looking forward to doing, swimming in the sea, playing golf again and thats if I can swing a club, going for walks without keeping an eye out for the Feds, being able to hopefully before the year is out to visit our friends in Torrevieja as we were due to fly there on 23rd March, not seen them for 2 years. The list is endless.

Getting out and seeing folk who are over 1Km away as we did last night.

The boss is looking forward to getting her hair done on Friday and I am looking forward golf on Thursday -

For the golfers amongst you -

"Last week a friend said to me that the first thing he'll do when it's safe for golf to return is put all his energy into his opening tee ****. The second thing he'll do is hit a provisional!"

It will be nice to get out and about and go to Pozo Negro for a nice fish lunch

Yes, That definitely is one of the most important things at this time when the world is fighting for its existence.
