I am looking forward to...

Recommended Posts

Last night I posted some pics on Twitter of my favourite cycling climb to the lighthouse in Majorca, partly to cheer me up and partly to give myself something to look forward to.  Somebody else commented that her and her sister had been planning all the lovely things we'd do in the future and how it really helped her anxiety.

So what are the top 3-5 things you are looking forward to doing (all must be positive) when this is all over?

  1. Cycling in Majorca
  2. Not worrying about touching things in the supermarket
  3. Learning how not to socially distance (something have been guilty of for 20 years)
  4. The other person mentioned going to Cornwall to surf. That's always been on my bucket list to try surfing... with my sense of balance it will be stand/splash in all of 10 seconds :D   So this summer I want to try it.
  5. Some said hugging, well I don't do that anyway, so I will say seeing my colleague Zoe again and pretending not to laugh at her age jokes at my expense.

Just thought, Gemma I could come to learn to surf on the Tyne with all those waves you claim to see.  :D :surfing:

Good post ashley :) sounds like you've got loads to look forward to x 

I'm looking forward to going to the gym most of all. Which is tragic I know. But I love the gym it's like a sanctuary to me and I really miss it.

I want to go a step up on my fishing and take on some bigger fish, since a combination of losing weight and a gel called Flexisec has significantly improved my arthritis. 

And take Julie to see some of the gorgeous villages, attractions and country houses and estates here in the Midlands.

Years ago a mate I was sharing a house with and I went on a holiday to Cala D'Or in Majorca. 

It was lovely and we hired some bicycles to get around and about. 

I can understand why you love it so much Ashley 🚲

This gel Flexisec needs no prescription but is expensive. £19-odd for a large tube. 

However I only need to top up with it occasionally now. 

It only works with osteoarthritis, and - like meds for OCD - it doesn't work for everybody. 

It doesn't contain pain relief - it apparently works by water within it being attracted into the cartilage around the joints, and acting as a lubricant :)

Oooh, splendid!

1) Having a massive cuddle with friends and family

2) Going to Oxford on a long, long holiday; Endeavour's been keeping me safe and sane during this lockdown and I love that city

3) Seeing my best friend

4) Being able to go out for long walks as long as I like

5) Being able to go to the bookshops as I feel calmer when I'm in a bookshop.

Going on a stained glass course which is what I was planning to do this year before all of this.

Walks at my favourite nature reserve (attenborough reserve).

Trips to Scotland.

I really feel for extroverts at the moment this must be very hard. Do you live alone dksea?

Yes, I do, which right now is probably best in terms of physical health since I don't have to worry about transmission that way.  
And I actually don't mind living alone, its nice to have somewhere to relax and retreat to when I want some alone time.
But I very much miss socializing with people! Online stuff absolutely helps, but its not the same as a good old in person gathering!
Definitely looking forward to those again down the line :D

1. Seeing and hugging my family and friends

2. Celebrating my 30th (which got cancelled - that means I'm still 29 right 😄)

3. Going back to the stables I volunteer at 

4. Going back to the office and seeing my colleagues - chatting with them on teams is not the same!

5. Going on holiday to somewhere with a beach

That is just scandalous, no cake left on doorstep at very least.  That officially makes you 29!

oh that's such a shame :( this virus has ruined so many things for people.  You should do your big plans though when it's all over, have something to look forward to :)

Happy birthday ! Make sure you celebrate properly when it's all done with. 

My wife is 40 in June and I think we may be in a similar position too.
