The New Hug Day: 6th July 2020

As from today, it has been determined by our PM that people will be allowed to hug each other.
Heaven help us all.

I am not letting anyone hug me other than Hubby and any hugs I give will be this one
Want a social distancing hug? Easy.
Stand the necessary 2 meters (and more if you wish) from the To-be-Hugged.
Wrap your arms around yourself (as in above picture), rub your hands up and down your back as far as you can reach and rock from side to side.
Happy (safe) New Hug Day.

Be safe, please.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’ve allowed only one person to hug me and that’s my neighbour I have been mentioning recently. The couple downstairs who I consider my circle.

    Oh my goodness! How to spread Corona even quicker!!
    I like your virtual hug method! πŸ˜€

    • I am seriously wondering about our government’s sanity. Matt Hancock is convinced most of the people behaved sensibly: on pub owner at least did, he shut up shop when people didn’t comply with social distancing!
      Sending hugs to you Sci

    Yikes! I’m not a big hugger without a pandemic. With the threat of COVID I’m a really standoffish person! I prefer the distant wave!
