The First Few Jaunts Out With Friends – The Oliver’s Madhouse

Over the last 15 months life as we knew it has altered and changed and I am not sure if it will ever be the same as it was before.

If I am brutally honest I am not sure I want it to be the same as before for some things.

I can honestly say that where friends and family are concerned I will never take them for granted again! There hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I havent missed my friends and our little gatherings.

Recently I got to spend some time with some of my other friends and I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to it. We regularly caught up over a random game of Bingo in the past, some cheap food and too much bingo rage to mention! It became our ‘thing’ and I loved it.

No massive issues stressing over what to wear, make up or no make up or what shoes to put on. A super relaxed evening wearing what I liked and what I felt comfortable in and chit chatting the evening away.

We planned our trip out over a few weeks before and it almost felt like Christmas on the count down the night before.

In fact I loved the cinema so much my lovely friend Jo and I have visited again to watch a Quiet Place 2.

At bingo I was thrilled to be able to spread out and not have someone close to me and that I could clean my table myself before I sat down. 

I know my COVID anxious worries are over the top for some but I think its going to take me a long time to drop my anxieties and so for now I am going to enjoy meeting up with my friends in a more controlled way. Next stop is meeting more friends and visiting new places.

How have you cope with starting to go out and about again?
