"It’s most certainly interesting times here,' the designer wrote. "We are all well and our main focus has to be, to keep it this way. The realisation that this year will be very different to what we planned has well and truly sunk in.

"As a result, we have started the difficult process of juggling event dates, and simply doing our best to do what we can for all those people who have planned weddings and visits here for many months, even years.

"We’ve been concentrating on several areas to keep us busy and productive. it got us thinking how important looking after ourselves and having something to look forward to is!

"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 home schoolers, instead we have been working together in the garden and being creative.

"And Dick is finally going to write some children’s books that he has been testing on his four children, and finessing, for over 30 years.

"We are embracing the fact that we have time to look after ourselves."

Since sharing the intimate update, hundreds of fans have flooded the post sharing warm wishes and messages of love to the Strawbridge family.

"Lovely of you to update us we have been wondering how you all are through this horrid time,' one wrote. "Spending quality time with your wonderful children must be so lovely. They are a credit to you both. Stay well."

"Happy to hear your all safe and enjoying this time together. It surely is the meaning behind 'every cloud has a silver lining'. Sending healing hugs," another said

.We wish Angel, Dick, Arthur and Dorothy all the best as they too adapt their lives to get through this uncertain time.
