The date April 12 has been firmly in people's minds since the Prime Minister announced his plans for lifting lockdown in England.
From today (Monday) pub beer gardens, non-essential shops, hairdressers, barbers, salons and gyms were finally allowed to open after months of being shutdown.
This is the latest milestone in the country's route out of lockdown with the next major changes not due until May 17 when people will be allowed to drink and dine indoors at pubs and restaurants.
And people have been making the most of the changes, heading to the high-street, shopping centres and their local boozer for some much needed time out the house.
Let's also not forget those lucky enough to get their locks chopped and nails done on the first day of reopening.
That includes some famous faces who have also been enjoying their freedom.
Stacey Solomon updated fans this morning as she took a 6am trip to Primark - where queues have been busy across the country.
The 31-year-old Loose Women star returned from the shop with two huge bags featuring everything from a cute outfit for youngest son Rex and some bits for her new home.
"I went to my favourite place this morning," Stacey wrote on Instagram to her 4.2m followers. "This is not an ad in any way but I have to say I work with Primark. Oh my goodness I've missed you friend.
"They had so many lovely summer bits and new fejkas."
Piers Morgan also made the most of the day by heading to get a haircut.
The 56-year-old popped to the Daniel Galvin salon in Kensington for the chop, sharing a mirror selfie on Instagram.
He wrote: "Hair we go! God it's good to be back under the knife... "
Fellow ITV star Ruth Langsford also headed to the salon to get her nails done.
The This Morning host, 61, shared a video of herself on Instagram and wrote: "She's back!"
Ruth then shared another video of her fresh French manicure alongside the words: "Who knew we would be so ridiculously excited to get our nails done?!! Thank you @samsnails .... great to have you back!"
Fellow This Morning star Rochelle Humes also made the most of her day with a trip to Zero Gravity Pilate's studio for a fitness fix before heading to the beauty salon for laser treatments.
Coronation Street's Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk Sutherland in the ITV soap, heading to his local pub with wife Nicola Willis.
Sharing a photo of the pair grinning from ear to ear as they enjoyed a cold beer, the actor wrote: "Shops have reopened and our 1st draught pint in 5 and a half months down at our local club the Botanical Gardens feels like a bit of normality has resumed have a great day everyone."
While former co-star Katie McGlynn headed straight to the gym, posting a sweaty selfie with her followers.
