Are we getting complacent or just trying to take back some normality?

There was fierce excitement across the country last week, the likes of which hasn't been seen, I'd say since the Pope's visit to Ireland in 79.

Thousands of people, mostly women I might add, queued from dawn as Penney's reopened its doors for the first time since Lockdown.

Personally I don't get Penneys. I never have. Sure it serves a purpose - it's grand for socks, jocks and pjs but if you start thinking too seriously about it, your mind eventually lands on the poor crayturs being paid around 50p a day in some sweatshop in Bangladesh to make your fast and disposable fashion.
