Things we already miss about lockdown (and things we don’t)

Updated: Sep 27, 2020



It’s been a funny old year so far. With the recent, and rather rude arrival of a temporarily stormy autumn, one minute we were wearing shorts and sunglasses, the next an oversized sou’weste and wondering why the heatwave left us. One thing we won’t be forgetting in a hurry is lockdown though. Something that played merry havoc with everything. Here’s a little list of things we loved, and didn’t during lockdown

Things we loathed in lockdown


Hair misbehaving

Whether it was grey, or wiry or sprouting in very much the most unwanted places, hair did not behave at all well over lockdown. Rumours of certain well coiffured neighbours sneaking their stylists in via the back door, remain rife.

Children not listening

Children no longer listening to anything you say. BRUSH YOUR TEEEEEEETHHHHHH!!!!.

Screaming this into an abyss.


Love in lockdown

On your own, or with a partner, kind hugs, and lingering kisses were slowly replaced with seething resentments and slammed doors. Lockdown tested our heart strings to the point of snapping.
