Margaux in 'Lockdown'
Margaux - 'I wanted to stay here when lockdown began because I know that the situation in Spain is much worse and while I was talking to my coordinator from Spain, she told me that I would have to do again the same year in Spain as I no longer would have been able to do the homework sent from here. I also love my life here so I would really like to stay as long as I can. My parents also agree with me as they think it’s the best for me.
For me, living in lockdown hasn’t been very difficult as I know how to keep myself busy with different activities that I enjoy, like drawing and painting, playing the guitar, reading and running, plus my host mum has presented me a lot of activities for me to do in case I’m bored.
It’s true though that the beginning wasn’t very easy and I felt very sad that school was over as I wasn’t expecting it at all and I was just starting to make friends and to go out with them. I still sometimes feel sad but I know it’s normal and my sister and my parents are always there to support me. Living with Clare and Kevin during lockdown has been very good and I feel very lucky to have them as my parents. Here is the easter cake that I made and the eggs that I painted whilst in lockdown.'
