Going Off Topic

Going Off Topic (#27) A Whole New World…

I knew it had been a while since my last Going Off Topic post, but I didn’t realise my last one was in June last year! I guess I’ve stuck all my off topic rambles into my actual review posts so uh, sorry about that. Anyway, instead of moaning about doom and gloom, I’m reflecting on a great week last week. Loads more COVID restrictions eased in the UK and almost all our outdoor activities have resumed. We can go to the pub, a restaurant, a cafe, only if we sit outside. A bit risky when you consider UK weather but it’s starting to look better. Theme parks, zoos and other activities for kids have reopened too which, as a parent of a three-year-old is HUGE news. It really does feel like a whole new world out there…

Last week we drove down to the coast with my parents and stayed in a caravan for the week. It was heaven, a little bit of reality and my daughter has been desperate to visit a beach. Needless to say, it was impossible to get her to leave. Give her a bucket, spade, and a beach with “real sand” (pebbly beaches aren’t real beaches, apparently), and she’s entertained for hours. Please excuse my general appearance in that third photo, hairdressers and salons have reopened but I haven’t been able to get an appointment yet!

It’s another 3 and a half weeks at least until cinemas reopen but I’m so excited. I’ve still been watching plenty but I haven’t felt creative enough to actually write which is why I’m so behind on everything, including reading all the wonderful blogs I follow myself. Tomorrow is a new day!

  1. I like the blue hair! Cinemas are open here but I’m holding out for a big movie probably Cruella. It’s been over a year for me! I feel like going back should be a celebration 🙂

    1. Thank you! A little DIY, lockdown 3 crisis decision of mine, ha!
      Oh I’m SO looking forward to Cruella! Looking at dates I think that’ll be my first movie back at the cinema too 🙂

  2. I’m going to get my 2nd vaccination in a couple of weeks as I’m so ready to get back to the cinemas. Still, I enjoy watching some stuff with my nephew and my one-month old niece.
