Writing on the family's Facebook page back in April 2020, Angel gave an insight into their children's experience during lockdown. She explained that they had enjoyed helping to teach Arthur and Dorothy while they were at home from school, although admitted they weren't trying to become teachers.

"With the children at home we’ve enjoyed sharing knowledge – we haven’t tried to mimic their formal education, or tried to be fully-fledged homeschoolers, instead we have been working together in the garden and being creative.”
