It was mentioned in a news broadcast this morning that the PM has said we can cautiously return to hugging when the last lot of national restrictions are removed in June. We are to 'use our common sense' is the advice on how to proceed.
I've tended to treat each and every safety edict with the greatest of respect throughout the pandemic, and been almost sceptical as they've been removed, (and at times replaced), and often thought that it was too much too soon.
But I'm going in for this one! Never mind pubs, restaurants, holidays in foreign places. Of all the things I've missed the hug is it! Of course I'll be as careful as I can, but frankly I can scarcely wait!
