May Day 5 (The joy of eating out.)

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, and many thanks as always for your kind response to my previous upload, very much appreciated. Smile

Number five of the May Day series shows us entering, what we hope, is the final two and a half weeks of not being able to eat inside pubs and restaurants. However, it seems that many people are enjoying the outside experience and, probably reminding some, of their holiday's abroad. Though not feeling anywhere near as warm.

All the best to all and take care in or out there,

Strange how such a simple event, such as eating lunch out instead of at home, can become something people look forward to excitedly and as if it was something special. No longer taken for granted...

We've been able to eat in restaurants but no drinks since April 26th - eating out not much fun if the weather is cold but great to see everybody beginning to live a normal life again.

We have news articles at home about how life in the UK is returning to normal. It would certainly seem from this set that the reporting is accurate.

Should not have seen this before lunch .Now I want a cheesburger and orange soda ! I am a bit late to the party as I think you folks can now dine and socialize indoors again? Wish that were the case for us , maybe by July.
Best regards
