After a couple of years of searching we recently completed on a new house by the coast. The long-term plan had always been to live there most of the time and keep a small flat near where our disabled son gets hospital treatment (the nearest specialist centre that deals with his condition). The latest covid lockdown began when the house was part furnished but habitable. We had to return to the small city flat while our son had intensive regular medical treatment as an outpatient. Now we're all ready with a van full of beds, spare food etc and really ought to go 'home', if only to ensure it's not lost tiles in recent storms and to avoid invalidating our insurance.
It's been more than 2 weeks since we went near a hospital, shop or anyone else. We can get back home without stopping (barring the unforeseen) as it's about a 2 hour drive; the freezer there is full and there's a large safe garden where we can getfresh air. Our neighbours are happy if we 'come home'. We'd probably be OK to travel there as it's technically a 'house move' and thevan is registered there. Trouble is, we'd only be able to stay a week or two before having to return to the city for another 2-3 weeks of medical treatment for which we need to be near the hospital.
Who would go for a week or so?
