Like many around the world we are effectively locked in and self isolating. Family of four confined to our little apartment. Yesterday the weather was incredible and invited us out for a little bit. Having said that we were incredibly conscious of everything the kids touched and of any people within 10m of us.

My favourite quote during this whole time has come from the Italian Foreign minister, Luigi Di Maio, who said:

Our grandfathers were drafted to go to war; we’re being asked to stay at home.

Putting everything into context, this is hardly a hardship. It just needs discipline to not go a little bit loopy and remain patient (with everything and everyone) . For my part I have been using this time to reflect and try and come out of this a slightly better person than when we entered this thing.
