We had people, yes, actual people in our garden on Saturday. The Young Man had 5 of his friends around for a few drinks and a catch up. It's the first time they've seen each other, in person, in over a year. Seeing them on a webcam apparently doesn't count.
We had a one way system in place, they socially distanced as much as possible, there was sanitiser by the bucket load along with disinfectant spray for handles etc. Hubby and I stayed indoors and kept a low profile.
They're all really sensible lads and most of them are being tested twice a week at work so are taking all the right precautions necessary. The silly thing is, we had all these measures in place when next week they could all meet up in a beer garden and all sit together for a few hours and it would be legal.
Just so the neighbours were aware that we were having people round, and didn't call the police to complain, I put a message on the village Facebook page letting them know and asking that, if anyone wanted to speak to me about it, they could pop round for a chat. :0)
Along with the alcohol, there was also homemade pizza and spicy chicken wings to round off the afternoon.
I feel that the younger generation have found lockdown a lot more difficult than us oldies. They all seem to be a lot more sociable nowadays. Or maybe, now, I'm just happier when I stay home!!
It was a pleasure to hear them all laughing and joking. It's been too long.
