In what ways has the coronavirus pandemic changed the way you use your home?

Sometimes it's hard to find a room to be alone in but we are all rather liking it.

How do you feel about your home? How have these feelings changed?

We have always loved it and do still.

How does staying at home affect your relationships?

Thankfully we have gotten along pretty well. We've had our moments but overall it's been fine.

What do you appreciate most about your home? What do you find frustrating?

Not enough rooms to have one each. Kitchen is a bit small.

How has lockdown changed your habits or routines at home?

Not really. We clean once a week as a family and have movie night once a week. We didn’t do that before.

How is your sense of home affected by your neighbours or those living nearby?

No problems at all. In fact we have become friends with the neighbours upstairs.
