When the lockdown eases off, what's the first thing you'll do?

Nobody is sure what the exit strategy is just yet because they have to analyse the data specific to the UK.
They might open up the currently "non-essential" shops first and they may also allow gyms and restaurants to reopen etc.
They could allow kids to go back to school and there may be more places of entertainment allowed to reopen.
Sports may return to normal and Sunderland AFC might be allowed to play football again at the Stadium of Light.

But, when they ease the lockdown, what will be the first thing you will do what you currently can't do?
If they reopen places in phases, then in this case, what are you looking forward to doing once the lockdown is fully over?

For me and the family, the very first thing will be to get the grand-kids to Roker Park and the beach so they can mess about with their friends.
Simple pleasure but you don't half miss the simplest things in life.
For myself only, then it's a visit to the pubs and nightclubs in the city centre because I miss this most.
A fag and a pint out the back of Ttonic after a pub crawl and heavy sesh - Heaven.

Unless we get a vaccine or treatment that stops people getting critical, the pubs will the very last thing to open. It's the "z" on the alphabet

Hard call because I'd like to say go to the match but that's only say 20-25 times a year.
So it's down to the local pub for me :cheers:


What was that you said again?

Have a few mates round for a drink or three at the weekends but straight away when it's first lifted.
