Did you venture out? How did you find it?
I went for a pint at my local, which is 30 metres down the road, was nice to have something of normality back in my life with regard to that. HPA on draught was certainly a welcome return.
Wandered up into ‘town’ at about 4ish - went to a free house pub, which was a bit too busy. Settled for one there before heading home for the evening.
On the 40-minute walk back home saw 3 different police cars zoom up into town I assume for the drunk and disorderly.
From the living room sofa from about 8 onwards I unfortunately whitenessed the worse of it. A group walked past the house to get in a car for a lift, a young lass decided to drop her pint glass on the floor as she ran for the car.
Upon locking the house up at about 10:30 I decided to sweep up the shattered glass from the pavement in case anybody fell on it or somebody did something stupid with a shard.
One lad walked by and called me a c**t repeatedly and demanded I sweep faster. One older lass called me a stupid ###### for dropping my drink everywhere!
I suppose it’s what you get when so many have been locked away for so long and it’s their big opportunity to return to the pubs, otherwise it felt well organised and somewhat safe in each of the locals I visited. 95% of the people were also in good spirits and very respectful.
