We asked where the HC team have been spending their money during lockdown:
Sue – I’m on my year of “buying nothing new to wear” – so no online shopping for me. Instead it’s been home improvements. All this time spent at home makes you see the things that need fixing and makes you want to make it well, more homely. I built a bench seat and a new firepit area I’m pretty proud of. #DIY
Alex – Mine has been a mixture of finishing touches for my new apartment – plants, artwork, final decorative pieces and also new trackpants and activewear which are my new norm of clothes!
Al – My spending has been a mixture of wants and needs. I wanted that new winter coat, I bought it. We needed to update the air con and roller shutters, so we did. Being home makes it easier to have tradies work around you and watching the postman stop at your place from your home office window, well we all know what joy that brings!
Kendi - All this time at home has led us to invest in important things - solar power and velour tracksuits!
Ali - I've spent lockdown cooking up a storm, so lots of cash spent on groceries!
Karen – New fruit trees for the garden now the drought has abated and we can see what is alive or not, and believe the additions can survive. Plus getting the home improvements that were on the backburner done or started. And finally purchased an upgrade for my ancient mobile phone.
