Q. What does this new lockdown mean for you?
This is certainly a most trying moment, with the latest lockdown in NI just as we were expecting children to be back in school. With children in school there's a little ease on expenses, I can live on one meal a day but with kids home there's more consumption of basically everything and this means that I will continue to stretch the budget further. Was going through my daughter's last winter clothes and boots only to get a 😲 she's way taller so there's need to shop for warm winter clothes and shoes but the charity shops are closed. I'm finding myself frustrated and confused because there's no clear guidance on what to expect in the near future and the inability to plan for anything due to the uncertainty surrounding the virus and how it's going to play out.
