We've had a rough couple of days. I can't seem to get it through to my mum that the shops are closed, the internet isn't a magic wand that can produce anything she wants on demand, her grocery order has to include whatever she might need in the next two weeks and her friend can't just pop round if there's anything she's forgotten. I know she's elderly, extremely fed up and probably a bit scared, but it's so frustrating when I tell her something three times (one of which will probably be the hundredth since lockdown began), she says "I AM listening" then in the next breath asks the same thing.
We've got democracy! Who needs solidarity?
