I would love to have this day as a bank holiday to be able to se my grandchildren particularly our youngest, is only 16 months old and her mum works as a nurse so we have only seen her about 3 times since last March so she doesn’t really know us because her mum and dad where protecting us from the virus and her mum caught the virus so just to hold her and hug her would be fantastic.
