It's amazing how quickly a completely new situation can become the norm. I've lost count of the number of times I've been looking at a TV programme recently and taken a sharp intake of breath when there is a scene where people are shaking hands and standing beside each other.
Despite the fact that it was probably filmed years ago...BC - Before Corona.
So when all this is over, will we be able to go back to the way it was before?
I was supposed to go to see Clara musical society's production of Shrek-the Musical this weekend, along with a gang from Leixlip. Obviously it has been cancelled. I got a text today to say that it is now being put on in October and did I still want to go?
Of course I did....after I did a little double take.
You mean we will be going in a group of 13 people and we will be sitting in a hall with loads of other people IN CLOSE PROXIMITY? Imagine that!
It does seem like an impossibility but hopefully it's just on pause at the moment.
It also is not natural how excited I am about going to see a show next October. I'm on the verge of planning what I'm going to wear.
I really should get out more often,,,,oh wait, I can't, the country's in lockdown.
I can't wait to look back on this post then and struggle to remember just how difficult things were.
