    I’m enjoying the relaxed rules. Because the support bubble means that I get to see my boyfriend again! In general though, I worry that everyone is becoming a bit too relaxed! Hopefully we’re not headed for a second peak, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we did. #wotw

    Oh Anne, I feel the exact same way! The irony of the relaxed rules making us feel more anxious about it all, it’s not lost on me. The phrase “give them an inch and they’ll take a mile” comes to mind. I’m not planning any big trips out anywhere for a long time, but I do really want to see my family in Glasgow. I imagine we will end up resorting to creating our own bubble, agreeing to self-isolate completely before the visit to protect each other. Remember that, whilst you don’t have control over what others do, you have control over what your own household does. You can keep yourselves safe and that’s what matters! #wotw

    I have mixed feelings about the relaxing of the rules. I’ve adhered to them, some people have acted as if lockdown never happened. I guess my support bubble is my parents, but I can only see them in their garden and it’s really not the weather for that. I have said for a while that the *bubble* should be extended to family, after all we know where the other people have been so to speak, you can’t say the same about a cleaner… I hope your week is more relaxing than last, take care of yourself.

    I used to go to drive in movies when I was a kid. They all closed around here but now some places are opening up again due to the virus. I want to try one – they sound like fun. Rules are relaxing here in the US too and people are not social distancing, from what I can see. The virus is still here. People are still getting sick. I would like to relax too but I struggle with it.

    I’ve yet to go to a drive-in movie either. One day! I need to take a break from all things news this weekend so I can relax more too. Such a tense time. Things have definitely relaxed in my area…and the covid numbers are spiking again as a result. 🙁 Many people aren’t abiding by the few solid rules we have been given to keep everyone safe. It makes me anxious.

    Relaxation of the rules is a real mixed one isn’t it? I’m so glad that I’ll be able to see my mum next week for the first time in three months as we’ll be in a social bubble together but there is a big difference between relaxing the rules and going back to normal. I get quite anxious too with people getting more careless about maintaining social distancing. I’m sorry that not being able to relax resulted in a day of you not being able to move. I hope that you’re feeling better now. #WotW
