Here in Tasmania Covid-19 restrictions are gradually being eased. This weekend for the first time Tasmanians can travel freely throughout the state (but not out of it).
That means that my sister, who lives about three and a half hours drive from here, can come and stay for the weekend. We are planning that for next week because she has to work part of this one. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m excited. I don’t think I have been excited about anything for a long time but I’m looking forward to it. We keep in regular touch but we haven’t seen each other for three months. It will also be nice to go somewhere myself. As a non driver in a township with no public transport I’ve not been anywhere since early March.
It feels as if life is slowly returning to normal. It’s now possible to go to a cafe or to a restaurant, lots of restrictions of course but at least they are open.
