It's taking a while but we are gradually venturing a little further from home and into places with 'other people'.
I don't mind admitting I have liked being away from crowds and noise for the last 5 months and I'm in no rush to get back to it.
We took the plunge a few weekends ago and went out for lunch at Hickory's in Southport.
It was well organised, well spaced and we didn't feel squashed in or rushed. We felt it was a good choice for our first meal out.
We have also been returning to our National Trust visits. I book on a Friday morning for the following weekend and so far it's worked out well. Neither Chirk Castle or Dunham Massey have been over crowded and there was a relaxed feeling to place.
We have been to the Zoo twice since it re-opened and again it was a good experience. They really have thought the area out well and there are only small queues to go into the inside areas. We stayed out of those and opted for walking to all the areas we don't normally go to. On our trip last weekend, our time slot was 2pm and we stayed the whole afternoon. By 5.30pm it felt like we had the whole zoo to ourselves.
It turns out, afternoons are the best time to see my favourite animals too so it's win, win.
We have our fist weekend away planned but I'm still a little apprehensive about staying somewhere overnight.
Are you happy to be out and about or, like me, are you happy to take one day at at time and not rush back in?
Blogger seems to be playing up today as my layout has gone all wonky!! :0)
