Q. What does this new lockdown mean for you?

The new lockdown means that my daughter's school is closed and I have to home school her until it reopens. My son goes to a special school so at the minute his school has dead opened. Although I have just chosen not to send them for a few weeks because the numbers seem to be very high and his teachers had to isolate within the first week back after January and we've already isolated and had coronavirus and I don't want to do any more isolation because I have a son that requires around-the-clock care and attention. I am still allowed to keep my bubble obviously everyone's allowed to keep their bubble but I am definitely allowed, to go and stay over at my mom's and stuff because I need a bit more support I need a break and also need a bit of help with my daughter too because all my attention would go to him. So we're not looking forward to the next few months of home schooling and and hopefully maybe in February we'll send John back to school because it's good for him. He enjoys it. He needs his routine, and we also need a break.
