I wouldn’t say I’m bored but yesterday I sorted the herbs into piles so that they are no longer mixed.

In hindsight I think it’s safe to say that when asked in 2015 “where do you see yourself in 5 years time?” Absolutely no one got the answer right. 

But wait a minute, lockdown is being eased, we can meet up in small numbers. You can visit me, enjoy drinking my beer and tuck into BBQ food cooked by me but if you want to have a shit you are going to have to do it in my garden! Well that’s ok, that can only do the roses good, right?

My understanding is you can pick 6 friends and they are the friends that you can socialise with.  You can visit their gardens, they can visit yours and you can all go on walks together. But you are stuck with them until Boris brings in new changes! 

What if you fall out with them all during the first boozy BBQ? Can you change your friends to people on your B list? And what about if someone wants to be one of your lockdown buddies but you have 6 better friends already? That’s going to be an awkward conversation isn’t it? Yeah, I really like you but you’re not in my top 6 best friends even tho I’m in your top 6 best friends! 

One of my friends pointed out that meeting now won’t be so much fun as we aren’t breaking any rules! I reassured her that we will have to think up new rules to break! Which is a whole new article someone needs to write about…..

2020 isn’t going to go down as the best of years is it folks?

  1. The way I understand Boris, Deaks, is that it’s ‘a gathering of 6 peeps’ (max) and you being one of them, that makes it only FIVE friends thee can invite back to ‘Deakins Manor’, lad.
    GET IT RIGHT, Sunbeam.
    P.S. I’d be happy to shit on your roses, as I’ll bet next door’s cat already does!
