Rediscovering your ‘home’
Staying at home for months at a time is no fun for anyone. Not in any situation and not at any age. But COVID-19 has also taught us a lot. You start to see and experience everything differently. Your home, your environment, your work, your family. Even going to the shops is no longer routine. You could get annoyed by it all, but you can also choose to deal with it differently. Our house and this neighbourhood have helped a lot. We always thought it was a nice house and a pleasant neighbourhood, but we’ve started to appreciate it all even more because of COVID-19. The space inside, with separate rooms for the kids, the large garden, the play areas outside and the schools and the sports fields more or less within walking distance. It’s a neighbourhood where people tend to know each other. That doesn’t just make it pleasant, it also makes it safe. We like to go on holiday, but we also always really enjoy coming home. We’re certainly not thinking about moving any time soon. Maybe when the kids have left home. And who knows, we might well rent from Vesteda again.
