Use our living room for wrestling

Conrad's contribution to our Stay Home collecting project

Our house is a small Victorian terrace in East London. It has two main bedrooms and a loft conversion.

I live here with my parents and brother and sister.

The living room is being used as a wrestling arena, we have moved most of the furniture. But also we use the main computer for escapist games of Krunker.

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

We started to use our small garden as a bullfighting ring when we take turns being the bull.

We also use our living room for wrestling more. Mum uses the bathroom more to escape the chaos and Dad is using the loft bedroom as an office work.

Also our dining table is used as a ping pong table.

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

I still feel the same about having our home because I feel like I belong here and it always feels comfortable and safe and I'm sure my family will agree.

How does staying at home affect your relationships?

I never get to see my friends and I hang out with my brother everyday more often. Me and my brother's relationship hasn't changed we get on the same as before lockdown.

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

TV, food, sofa, bed, toilet, computer, video games, safeish from coronavirus.

How has lockdown changed your habits or routines at home?

We do Joe Wicks's workout every morning and before lockdown we never did. Also every day we have homeschool at our dining table.

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

Not really.
