The two-bedroom property in Port Talbot, South Wales, houses the two retirees and their son Jason.
Describing the trembles, Gwyneth said they feel like “companions to us now” and now they have learned to live with it, it can be “soothing”.
Telling The Mirror that they actually missed the chaos during lockdown, when the roads were quieter.
Arthur, 80, said they all "hated the silence" and when they went on holiday to a rural area found it difficult to sleep because it was too quiet.

Gwyneth told The Sun: "As soon as I hear that lorry horn, I know it's time for me to get Jason's dinner ready and sure enough, a couple of minutes later, he walks through the door."
The family also say they are as "fit as fiddles" and have never suffered any health concerns due to the fumes they breathe in constantly.
