Things to look forward to

- having a few pints in a crowded pub

- eating with family/friends squeezed around a convivial table

- flying and holidaying

- chatting to work colleagues 

- going to concerts, plays, films, exhibitions

it's going to be awesome 

it will happen this year

Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man

 

Do you genuinely think there will be concerts this year?  I don't.  I'd really like to, but I just can't see it.

I hope I'm wrong as I would LOVE to be in a packed concert listening to someone great.  The last one I went to was Baxter Dury in Manchester and I'd pay a decent amount of wedge to fast forward to then and enjoy it knowing how much I'd miss it later.

yes, I do

I think the 2nd half of this year is going to bring a return to normality

6 nations.

United winning the league.

Lions.

Holidays.

Bright evenings with not so bright attractive people.

 

 

 

I think many things will be back this year but not large indoor gatherings and international travel will remain problematic.

poor translation, clergs

makes it sound likes he was talking about a hope that things are real

Christ man, this is the most depressing possible version of "things to look forward to".

Let's write up a big list of all the great things we're not allowed to do. 

 

who is translating anything that's just facts, heff ;)

i think a lot of people are cracked now tbf

ALL WILL BE WELL BY SUMMERTIDE

ALL WILL BE WELL

If the next two months are a shitshow, there is absolutely no way the govt will open the taps fully. I would have thought the best you can hope for is last July and August amended to include June, rule of 6 coming in from Sept and tiering from Oct half term, unless a) the vaccines are proved completely effective in practice and b) they are proven to keep up with mutations, or the effects of the virus weaken massively. 

Even with a completed vaccination programme I think they will keep the two weeks quarantine rule for holiday returnees for a good few years now.

Hugging my mum and dad

Holidays

Languid Saturdays in pub beer gardens with friends 

Going to Paris for my birthday 

Restaurants being open again 

Etc etc 

 

  • the juice of the carrot,
  • the smile of the parrot
  • a little drop of claret
  • anything that rocks
  • Elvis and Scotty,
  • days when I ain't spotty,
  • sitting on the potty
  • curing smallpox

- a silly, late night with friends in a pub or bar setting the world to rights over a few vinos 

- seeing real art in the flesh

- watching my kids run feral in a big pack of children 

- a weekend away with girlfriends 

- a weekend away with my husband while my parents look after our kids 

- being at the beach & swimming in the ocean

- making PLANS

oh christ, yes

leaving the kids with the grandparents whilst we go away

that would be amazing

Seriously heff can you IMAGINE?! It will be like being a normal human being again. 

People not wittering on about what we might and might not be able to do and when.

everything in Heff's OP will happen in Britain this year, without any doubt whatsoever

"Even with a completed vaccination programme I think they will keep the two weeks quarantine rule for holiday returnees for a good few years now."

Nope. Gone by summer

Well that's that screwed then.

nope

I have never been wrong on this or any other subject

When we are able to do so without attendant insanity levels of vuvu measures, we are going to go to either NY or Bermuda first class 

that's at least a year away I reckon 

 

Ascot

Wimbo

Parties

Martinis at Dukes or The Connaught

pubs

theatre

seeing my family

hugging

casual sex

laughing

hair dos and pedis

 

good list, Judy, save for Ascot, my least favourite of the society summer events

I don't really miss flying at all tbh. That's easily the worst part of a holiday

Even when you have access to fast track check in and security and lounges and flat beds it can still be tremendously boring and uncomfortable.

Please form an orderly queue for Judo's casual sex.  I'm first in line.

The entire summer season.

esp HRR, Garsington

skiing

dinner out in London

weekend in S of France

gym classes and a shower afterwards you dont need to book

Gigs, football, buying a round of shots and realising the night is taking a naughty turn into an all nighter 

Taking my kids to parties 

Going to Japan 

Dropping some pills with your wife and mates and losing 5 hours of your life 

Weekend away with Mrs B

City breaks with kids 

The grand opening of my pool.  Now has some tiles on the side walls and looking pretty smart.

Sails are you going to commission the SS Saillaw in which you can attack the Jolly Saillaw (similarly commissioned pirate ship sailed by your elderly folk)?

pretty much as soon as mum has the vaccine she's getting the kids for a week ! 

skiing is a good shout though I fear that will be next year

On the basis of an email I received this morning, Nimax anticipate we'll be able to attend the theatre (distanced) in March.

The daffodils are sprouting up in my garden. I assume they are trying to escape the wet. There are crocus tips under the oak trees and buds on the magnolia.  I am looking forward to spring which will happen whether Covid relents or not.

The martini trolley at the connaught is certainly high on my list 

Bet that's not all that's sprouting up in your garden you filthy rat 

Ah spring! Yes it will come. (Although later than many people think - we are all forgetting it stays miserable in the U.K. well into April, daffs or no.)

thr martini trolley at the Connaught - YES

Would add a classic champagne cocktail at the bar at Claridge’s. GET INTO ME. 

RoF martinis!

After 3, I am under the table, under 4, I am under the host!

I'm actually very much looking forward to 6pm when I am going to having a glass of the 2015 Chateau de Meursault Les Charmes that I put in the fridge this morning.

 

March was lush last year and I'm sure will be this year.

Bam have a remote control tug and also a crocodile  which reminds me must see what the critters in the pond make of the crocodile.  I'd also like a remote control Bismarck but the one I saw was way too expensive.

Judo's casual sex brings all the roffers to the mews

And she's like, it's better than yew's

Damn right, it's better than you's 

She could teach you, but it would be non-U

"Bam have a remote control tug"

is this like those love egg things?

No Linda it's a scale model tug boat complete with lights and horn.

Going to the rugby and cricket with a noisy crowd.

Big family meals and BBQ’s.

“buying a round of shots and realising the night is taking a naughty turn into an all nighter”

Heh, I haven’t done this since 2012. A lot more things will have to go back to normal than covid, for this to happen again.

“the martini trolley at the Connaught”

good Lord, how London are some of you guys? And to think I got it in the neck for going for brunch on christmas day (it was great btw, definitely now a locked in element of the Lazfam Christmas routine).

Loud parties with tones of people
Concerts and festivals without any need to take care of distance and the rest of the things that got our routine last days

Being able to leave the house without having to check a statutory instrument as to the lawfulness of the trip.
