Parents have shared how they will be celebrating from wine to sex, as millions of kids in England go back to school
After three months of home-schooling and online lessons, Monday marks the first step of easing coronavirus restrictions in England.
Many parents have revealed on social media how excited their children were at seeing their friends and teachers again as they got ready for the day.
Other mums and dads, relieved to finally have the house to themselves, joked the occasion called for a day on the drink.
A Twitter user captioned a photo of supermarket shelves full of wine supermarket as a 'back to school' promotion.
They wrote: "This will come in handy for some #BackToSchool."
Pointless co-host Richard Osman's tweet faced backlash, he said: "Wishing all kids a happy 'Back To School' day today, and wishing all parents a happy 'Drunk By 11am' day. "
Someone replied: "Except of course the parents who are also teachers, for whom it will be Covid by 11."
But others saw the funny side and joked: "Parents i know are all wasted by 10 , and that's with the kiddies at home."
Another jested: "On the contrary. It’s only now they’ve left the house that I’m starting to sober up."
Alcohol was not the only thing being discussed as a way to celebrate, as for most parents it will be their first chance of an undisturbed romp.
Sali Hughes tweeted: "I wonder how many people are having sex right now. #BackToSchool "

He told BBC Breakfast: "When we talk about schools, it is the fact that the school brings adults together, whether that's teaching staff, the domestic staff, the catering staff, and it's an opportunity for mixing."
Under the first phase of the Government's road map out of lockdown, visits to care homes are also resuming from Monday – under strictly controlled conditions.

And the rules around meeting another household have been loosened to allow people to leave home to meet one other person outdoors for a coffee or picnic.
