It was nice for the first time in a long time to catch up with friends for dinner. It has been a few months since we have been able to visit others in their home, so drinks with homemade pizza was the perfect panacea.
I am not sure we always appreciate our need to socialise with family and friends. On visiting our friends this evening, my wife was heard to say how happy she was that we were all able to get together. A feeling so simple, yet so important.
In the coming days, the frequency of these catch-ups will gather some momentum, and we will make sure we maximise our time with family and friends while staying within the current COVID rules.
Though it has been good to keep in touch online, it is no substitute for meeting up in person. We all missed it, and we are glad to get the band back together.
