    Hi @Edikiey - & welcome to this friendly community.  :)  I'm sorry things are difficult for you due to the pandemic. I understand you miss seeing your cousin & friends as I miss seeing my daughter & 3 grandchildren. It's good you have been doing online activities; what have you been doing?
    I'm continuing to wear a mask as well on the few occasions I go anywhere, & my son who works in a shop is doing so as well. As you say, it's a sensible thing to do, if possible, to keep ourselves & others safe.

    Hello @Edikiey and welcome to our online community, how's your Saturday going so far?

    I'm sorry to hear the pandemic has impacted you taking part in activities you enjoy, have you been able to keep in touch with your cousin and friends over the internet and things like FaceTime?  Having online communities, events and groups to join in with has been a real support for many, and although I know it's not the same as social contact, make sure to lean on these and keep looking for opportunities!  

    Personally, I've decided to carry on wearing a facemask too to protect both me, my bump (I'm pregnant  :) ) and those around me.  It's important to do what you think is right and keep yourself safe, as you say.

    If you ever fancy a virtual chat, feel free to drop by and visit us.  If you haven't already checked out our virtual coffee lounge, perhaps drop by and have a friendly natter one day.

    Have a lovely Saturday and take care.
