Ann Mc and Karen were joint winners, Congratulations to both, and also many thanks for entering.
They were actually the only 2 entries, disappointing, but the committee still went through the judging process rather than just split the prize.
After lockdown I will……………..
Never take anything for granted.
Always appreciate the human touch – hugs, kisses, holding hands.
Never complain about inconsequential things.
Always keep in touch with friends all year round, not just at Christmas.
Never think queueing is a boring pastime, listen to a podcast.
Always be kind, help someone.
Never drive somewhere unnecessarily.
Always cherish the NHS even more.
Never say ‘I’m bored’, there is always something to do.
Always count my blessings of which there are many.
Never say ‘I cant’.
Always say ‘I can’.
Oh, I might just have a party!
I’ll get on trains and buses,
I’ll visit family.
I’ll meet friends for a cuppa,
And meet more friends for tea.
I’ll take day trips and holidays,
I’ll travel where I wish.
There’ll be concerts, films and outings,
And marvellous theatre trips.
I can go to do my shopping
Without the mask or gloves.
Share a car, or take a walk,
Give those I love some hugs.
Life will all return to normal;
Except, of course, it won’t.
For we always take for granted
what we have – until we don’t.
