Spring is always a special time of year; it brings a new lease of life and a chance to start afresh. However, this year, spring feels particularly special. Of course, we have been in lockdown for almost an entire year and we now have a roadmap that will hopefully see us out of lockdown for good. The vaccine rollout is going to plan and we have seen cases fall significantly, so optimism is pouring into our lives at the moment.
From 8th March, children were back in school, and then hopefully, at the end of the month we can meet up to six people outdoors. From 12th April restaurants and non-essential retail could open for outdoor seating, from 17th May we can potentially meet in groups of 6 indoors and on the 21st June, the legal limit for socialising will be eliminated. In normal times, these regular activities were taken for granted, but the prospect of the economy opening up now is a real treat after months of uncertainty and restrictions.
So it is a very exciting spring time, and we hope as much as you do that everything will go to plan!
Thank you for reading and I hope this has inspired you to do some spring DIY this year.
