Our Family Life

We are a family of five with three young children. We have been committed to living and learning at home for four years now, and our eldest daughter is of school-age. My husband regularly works from home.

Our normal has changed too; extra-curricula activities have been cancelled. Places that we visit regularly are closed. Instead of two days a week, we are all living, learning and working from home full-time. Family members are self-isolating and everyone is concerned about those who are unable to limit their risk because of how they make a living.

When families I know first began to feel the impact of these changes and foresaw spending a lot more time at home, they asked for help to make life a little more comfortable at home all day. I hope that the content on livelearntogether goes some way to achieve this.

Please do send an email to contact@livelearntogether.co.uk if you have any specific questions about living, working and learning at home and I'll accommodate them where I can.
