Things I will not take for granted again, that I did not even know I was taking for granted.
- Proximity to other people
We’re probably going to go back from Level 5 to Level 3 on Monday. To be honest, Level 3 feels pretty much like normal life. And the knowledge that the vaccine is coming makes it all feel much more bearable. Even on a wet and wintry November night. I was soaked cycling home from work – my “physical presence” in the office, is, alas, currently indispensable.
I’ve got nothing this evening.
What is the nature of your work that requires you to physically be there?
Or do you keep the only key to the biscuit barrel?
I like to think that I won’t take those things for granted in the future but I’m sure that it will slide away and we’ll end up talking about those weird times when we couldn’t go anywhere. Although I do wonder what effect it will have on much younger people and if they’ll value these things more or not.
Henry, how did you know?
Heather, I suppose you’re right. For primary children I’m not sure that it makes as much of a difference but it is particularly grim for people in their teens and 20s, I feel.
