With restrictions easing and places opening up again it means for the first time in nearly a year and a half we’re spending a lot more time outside with the people we know and love.
However, after a full day or week of being out and about, socialising, there truly is nothing we’d love to do more than throw ourselves onto the couch and spend a good few hours decompressing in front of the TV.
