My Experience of Lockdown – By Louise Wylie


My experience of lockdown has been quite relaxing, but I can’t wait to be able to see my family and friends and to go to school.

Home schooling has been okay for me. It’s nice to do your work at home and in comfy clothes but on the other hand it’s been difficult to stay focused and motivated to do my work.

I have been exercising a lot in our workout space in our garage to pass the time. I’ve also been outside in the garden playing football with my brothers and netball with my Mum. I’ve learned to cook new dishes and bake new things and I didn’t even set off the fire alarm doing so. My family and I have been having game nights every other night and mini football matches in the garden.

I miss my wider family a lot and I miss football and all the girls at football. I miss my all my friends and can’t wait to see them.

I have been staying hopeful by spending time with my brothers and Mum, and Face Timing my relatives and all the girls at football and some school friends. I’m never in the house usually with club football and Tyrone football and then netball and helping out my granny, so I’m enjoying spending time with my family during lockdown.

In conclusion, my experience in lockdown has been good and I can’t wait to see the rest of my family and friends.
