Q. Have you had to change your plans because of the announcements?
Hi. I had to make a few changes in this lockdown due to the last mainly because this strain is different. It appears to be more transmittable. It appears to affect children more. And there's a question on whether it's actually more deadly. Also I feel that people are more complacent. Shops aren't asking people to follow the rules because they're getting verbally abused which I know second-hand. So yeah, I've not visited my bubble which I could do, I'm allowed to do, but they are classed as vulnerable so I don't think it's fair to do this and go and see them. Though that support would have been lovely. Also the flu is going around at the moment, which they have had and it wasn't covid. But if I get the flu it means looking after the children becomes quite difficult. I've done it, I don't know how I got through it. I don't want to do it again. It's not easy. My girl isn't off school. Her school is classed as vulnerable, which I said in another video, which made a huge difference. She had two weeks off and she really, really struggled. Yeah, it wasn't easy. So yeah, there's no end. We don't know what's going on. We can't plan, we can't structure anything. I'm trying not to spend much money at all. Just because you don't know what's around the corner with prices going up. Everything's going up, even things online because of the import costs and Brexit and the borders being closed. So I'm having to think about that, future steps and everything.
