Q. What big changes have you gone through in the past year?
So my big changes was my daughter living in Leicester going to University. And having lockdown has been a very interesting one. We live in London and our tier level, at the beginning, was a lower tier than my daughter's at Uni. So moving her in a fun was because Leicester was in a higher lockdown originally. Then again at Christmas of last year 2020, again just before the national lockdown, we stayed over at a hotel to visit some family, who are my support bubble, because I have a special needs child. Or I've got two special needs children at that time and traveling, traveling around and public transport staying in a hotel was very interesting and very difficult going from different restricted areas, going from Leicester to London on, and then from London to Sussex who at the time were a tier lower on lockdown than us. Then having National lockdown happen to us over Christmas while we were staying away in Sussex and having to explain to the hotel that we were actually visiting our support bubble. At the time, was a very interesting and challenging experience that hopefully we never have to relive. But those are the main challenges I found over the last year, was the different varying degrees of lockdown restrictions in different parts of the country where our family lived.
