For the record, the three people whom I would choose to be stuck with in the same house for 4 weeks (and counting) are my wife and two children (aged 10 and 12), and if it was just a prolonged holiday with no responsibilities, it would be wonderful. Unfortunately, we all still have work to do — whether it’s grants to write or a space-exploration school curriculum to study. I’ve enjoyed spending more time with the children since lockdown began, but being in the same space as them for four weeks has required even more juggling.
