What impact will this new lockdown have on you and your family?: "Honestly, it doesn’t feel like we’re in a proper lockdown. It’s so different from the first time round. Schools are open, the roads are really busy, there’s loads of people out and about, essential shops are still open (Inc garden centres and diy stores!?).
I’m glad children under 5 aren’t included in the numbers when meeting other households, that means I can meet another parent with our smallest children.
It feels like nothing has really changed for us.
I’d prefer a tougher lockdown if it meant being able to have bigger household bubbles sooner."
