    I’ll get back to the office and I welcome it, mostly. I don’t miss filling my car up with diesel, but I do miss my colleagues

    I actually don’t miss the pub as I can drink at home but do miss family and friends dropping by

    I can visit my daughter for a much over do haircut and my friends for my eyelashes

    I’d love to travel again , but don’t want to be in a different country with restrictions

    how about you ?

    I haven’t overly suffered from lockdown as I’ve been allowed to carry on working, which is mostly construction sites and aged care facilities. What I have missed is travelling and will be doing some of that as soon as the borders open again. Seems weird that you can’t drive over the bridge that separates New South Wales and Victoria but that is one of the reasons why there’s only been 100 deaths in Australia.

    Oh, and happy hour on a Friday, looking forward to that again, yessiree..

    Lockdown hasn't stopped work so lucky in that respect. Kind of looking forward to going back to the office but know It'll be"oh it's so good to see you" and after that back to reality of fakes.

    Look forward to meeting mates and having family get togethers. I've missed the kids in the family.

    I just want football (proper football, not this behind closed doors shit), pubs and the gym back. Life is hollow without them.

    I've worked throughout lockdown (nights) so the main things that will change will be the children going back to school (whenever that is, certainly not June) and the option to go out for a meal/social drink.

    In comparison to my life before lockdown I'm Living like a veritable hermit,so life hopefully will change drastically. I didn't realize how integral going the match and traveling away with the lads was to my social life ,likewise the gym and taking a sauna ,even the escape of driving to a mates house necking a few JD's maybe a joint or two and then being able to leave the car in his drive and ringing a Jobe to get me home. Seeing the widest smile breakout on my dads grid when I'd surprise him by popping in to one of his locals on a Friday night ,taking my mum shopping in Marks and Sparks and buying her a new coat or outfit amidst some strong protests. All these things I took for granted ,but I wont anymore,not when I've learned it can all be taken away.

    I miss sending the boy off to nursery.

    The house work has seriously gone down hill and I rarely get any free time.

    I work all night. Have him in the mornings and sleep in the afternoon. My wife works from home in the morning, has him in the afternoon and sleeps at night.

    We are literally doing parenting shifts only see each other for a quick handover!!

    The saving graces have been the long weekends.

    I’m quite enjoying no commuting, later starts for work in the morning and spending more time with the kids. I will more than likely continue to work from home a lot more after the lockdown with the odd day in the office/meetings

    the main difference for me is no gym. However I’ve been kickboxing in my yard every lunch time since the lockdown. I actually feel much fitter now though the downside is a broken knuckle and fractured hand

    other than days out/holidays I don’t think too much will change.

    that’s how I broke my knuckle. My hand hit the corner of the wall as I threw a kick at the bag

    Trained the next day but just kicks and my lead hand, and fractured it on the heavy bag. Probably poor form due to fatigue

    Not gonna take the simple things for granted anymore. Going for a few drinks, grabbing a cheeky Big Mac, spending a couple of hours down a pool club, the weekly pub quiz, going to watch my team, watching sports in general, trips to the cinema..:

    None of it is ‘important’. The important stuff hasn’t changed, I’ve gone to work, my partner has still gone to work, I’ve still had a steady income. But I maybe took all that other stuff for granted.

    I just can't wait to do social activities again. I'm very much a 'work to live' person, I'm not keen on my job but I'm good at it and it pays well enough for me to do the things I enjoy.

    I'm playing golf this weekend, so that's a start at least.
