So now that most of England has gone into Tier 4, many places have shut down completely, parks are bare, shopping centres are quiet, the pavements are empty. The picture shown is of a shopping centre in South London and you can see that they are so empty and barren. Although you may feel as if there is simply nothing to do, rest assured that there are many other activities and opportunities that are still open in this new, foreign tier system.

Fortunately, you can enjoy takeaway from any local cafes or restaurants as they remain open, or if you are lucky enough, you can get it delivered, which is still a plus in all these bad times. For example, Starbucks is currently open and available for takeaway or drive-through. So although you cannot go out and eat in at your favourite places, you can definitely enjoy your beloved dishes in the comfort of your own home.

Furthermore, since you are allowed to go out for exercise, local parks, although cold, are still open to be enjoyed and you can go relax or jog around your local park. Luckily, you are also able to enjoy the outside and take a new breath of fresh air amidst these difficult times.

But unfortunately, we do not know if the restrictions will get harsher and will disallow us from enjoying takeaway and going outside but we can hope that the situation in our country improves and 2021 will bring good things and luck.
