Whether it's a weekend away with loved ones, getting to a packed-out stadium, or simply seeing your friends in person again, we can all agree that it is nice to have something to look forward to.
And, following a turbulent 18 months, these experiences might seem even more enjoyable than before.
With three months of the year left, our reporter, Aaron McMillan, asked people in Fakenham what they are most looking forward in the remainder of 2021.
Lisa Willis, 56, from Little Ryburgh, said: “I’m most looking forward to being with family. We were not allowed to see each other last year so it is nice to be able to be with them now.”
Diane Bell, 70, from King’s Lynn, said: “If it was next year, I would say finally being able to go on my big cruise around Australia. Right now, I'm looking forward to going on a 1940s weekend. Plus, just being out and about with friends after so long apart.”
Alison Faulkner, 35, from Swaffham, said: "Just being with my family. I live and work in Swaffham now, and not with my family anymore in Little Ryburgh. So it is nice to come and see them."
Danny Breeze, 82, from Spixworth, said: “I would love to see Norwich City win a game. It seems like wishful thinking at the moment. I would like to see them stay in the Premier League for as long as they can.”
