Lockdown: 19 quotes and memes to send when missing friends

2 months ago 18

Many of us will have spent this year of UK lockdown missing our friends.

Whether during full national lockdown – when we haven’t been able to meet anyone outside of our households – or due to distance during periods with less restrictions, it’s been a tough year for friendships.

There are only so many Zoom quizzes and virtual hangouts you can do before you start to really miss meeting your mates IRL.

Luckily, UK lockdown restrictions are starting to ease – but they’re not totally gone. Even so, pals with health conditions or other concerns may still not be 100% on board with in-person plans just yet, even if they’re outdoors.

Show ’em you care with these heartfelt, funny or sarcastic memes, quotes and messages…
