How would you describe your life, and how do you feel about it?: "Relentless is the best way I can describe life right now. I'm constantly surrounded by people and I am desperate to be alone. I am fed up of the mundane realities of living in lockdown. It feels like we are living in Groundhog Day and I can't see a way out. Even when the schools return next week I will still be here working from home and living the same day over and over. I'm also fed up of seeing people on social media telling me their plans for when lockdown is over. Booking holidays and festivals. I can't afford that. When lockdown is lifted we will still have to stay at home because financially we won't be able to afford to go anywhere else. I want to be on my own for an hour or two just to think my own thoughts without anyone interrupting. I want to talk to people about things other than covid. Most of all I'd like some spare money to actually be able to plan a day out so that my kids can have something to look forward to with the rest of the country."
