Q. What is your experience of home during the pandemic?
I'm quite lucky because I moved home just two years ago so I have a large front garden with railings and I have a good back garden with a swing set for my daughter and my son. The weather last year was brilliant, so we were able to set up the front and the kids played in the paddling pool and the rest of the neighbours would have sat in their garden. So there was always someone to talk to and a good atmosphere sort of just keeping us going really because we spent the majority of our time in the garden or in the house alone. I'm so glad that I did have this house and it's very safe. My son has Global developmental delays and also low functioning autism. So he just didn't understand that you couldn't go out, you couldn't go and see people. It's good that the front garden is secure, it has railings. And the back garden has a really high fence. So that's the only place that you would be able to leave my son just for a minute, If you were to run into check the food in the oven or turn the washing machine on, you know. It was very secure and very lucky with that. I haven't had any interactions with my landlord but it's just been the same as everything. He gets his rent and they leave us alone and that's it really.
