seeing friends and family. A couple of major events have had to have the celebrations delayed. It's going to be a hell of a blow out when things return to normal

...people, human interactions and connections and feeling them and seeing them with others...seeing people hug and generally connect in their lives and having friends/family say what they did that day and the human connections that were part of their days...the animation of lives...

Freedom i guess, I know that's very general but its what's getting to me atm, just not being able to do anything or go anywhere. We can't even take a drive further than 5km atm unless for work

The Gym is the number 1 thing for me. Maintenance of this stunning body is hard without access.

Well more friends. Don’t really miss family. It’s a welcome distance.

Pubs by a long way </3 and also eating out or just going out for a coffee

I do miss watching live sport too although I managed to get to some non league games in the autumn so that helped and so does elite sport continuing. Be nice to see friends again but then we talk all the time anyway and we often go a few weeks or so without seeing each other in person so I'm not that bothered by it. I still go out to work as normal and see a lot of people everyday so it doesn't weigh as heavily in that respect as it might if I was just trapped at home all day

Working.....furlough sucks
Seeing friends
Being able to keep a 10 year old entertained without just saying, let's go for a walk. Miss his football and athletics as they were social for me and energy draining for him
Going to gigs / concerts. Missed 4 last year that I already had tickets for.....they've all been rescheduled for this year but imagine the dates will move again

Just pure physical interaction with friends and family.

Talking to them face to face, sitting down and having a good natter and a drink.

I don't really miss much at all tbh, I guess I'd say travelling/going different places and there have been a couple of concerts/festivals that I've wanted to go to that I didn't get chance to... so probably those.

Meeting family and friends but not much else.

I love working from home and may ask to work more from home when we go back. I usually have a bit of a mad one on NYE so I have been reminiscing about the more memorable NYE's of the past.
