When will the COVID-19 crisis be over for you?

When I can draw my own fishing spot (peg) out of a bag.

For a fishing match, all the peg numbers are put It a bag and you take turns picking one out. Since the virus the organisers have picked it out for you.

It will be well and truly over when we can go back to picking our own.

Actually, thinking about that, it could well be something that will never be allowed again.

It's been that long since I went fishing! I do love a spot of the old angling; used to go with my old man a lot when I was younger, and then with a few mates when I was older. Then it just kind of fizzled out.

A nice relaxing afternoon by the water. It's what the nation needs.

When it's not the first item on the TV news!

We did have a brief respite on the 6th January (US Capitol Building riot) but otherwise it's been wall to wall Covid for nearly a year now.

It wouldn't be so bad if they actually had something new to report, but it's mostly some "expert's" opinion on a tiny matter which is quickly forgotten.

I know we should all recycle, but they take it to extremes!

When things re-open and actually stay open. This whole stop-start aspect is bringing the hospitality sector to its knees, for sure.

But generally, when spontaneity comes back into the equation. Just popping out to the pub or around to friends - or even on holiday - on a whim and not having to worry about constraints or consequences.

It will take an adjustment for lots of us.
You will know when we have adjusted because the usual moaning and whinging will start. 🤣

When my kids leave the house - safely - for lessons.

For me probably when I don't freak out when someone gets too near me.

I think I've changed. I'll not be going to cinemas or live gigs anymore. I can honestly say I haven't missed either.

Not having a pop at you, but I do wonder how many like yourself there might be.

I don't think the old normal will ever quite return, and for a long time there still might be some apprehensive to socialise like they may have done in the past. And may never do again.

Global events such as this do change the world. Or at the very least reshape it. It's a natural consequence.

It will be a long time before this fades away.

Yes, I regard this as our generation's World War III, except that instead of fighting amongst ourselves, this time it's an invisible enemy.

It took 10 years and more to recover from WWII, so let's hope it's a bit quicker this time!

When I can safely meet my brothers lockdown frenchie puppy.

Getting pictures and videos of her isn't the same as getting a cuddle and rolling around the floor with her.

Key things for me will be seeing the family and going on foreign holidays. I suspect the former will happen before the latter, but that's fine as I haven't seen my older sister and my brother in person in almost a year. My brother also had to put off his wedding so him being able to have that without restrictions would be fantastic.
