Today was lovely with lots of sunshine - I even went and had a nap on the painters sheet that they left outside. The builders did come round this morning, but only for an hour, so mum still got a sleep in. She was glad that their visit was short as she didn't get up until after 10am.
Today our lockdown was relaxed a bit . Ours has been set at 4 levels. We had 5 weeks at level 4 - staying home. The supermarkets and pharmacies were open for essential visits, nothing else. No restaurants, takeaways, post offices or shops. No travel allowed.
Today is our first at level 3 - now we can do online shopping and get home delivered or take away food. We are not allowed into shops yet, but can click and collect items. Businesses can open if they can work without face to face customers. Our airports are shut and we still can't travel between cities.
Mum is going to go get some groceries tomorrow and have a look around. It will be strange to see more people out and about.
She heard on the news that our restrictions were almost the tightest in the world, that Italy had the most. I guess only time will tell and the world leaders and scientists will learn lessons from this crisis.
Mum is looking forward to seeing her friends again and sharing a meal out with them.
