For many of us, the last week has been about putting a toe back in the waters of our old - and often much-missed - lives and routines.
Re-visiting pools, gyms, cafes and shops, and all those other familiar settings which, by the same token, now feel strangely new.
This feeling of having forever yet never been away is a curious paradox, but not all of us have been so keen or quick to jump on the reopening bandwagon...just yet.
For every person queuing at the gym at 6am on April 12th, there were just as many toying with the idea from a distance. Even from the sidelines, however, the relief and sense of progress is palpable.
Just that feeling of finally having options - and CHOICE - as we acclimatise to the post lockdown waters, can (surprisingly) be just as refreshing as actually taking the plunge!
