Have been living in lock down in Central Italy for several days now.
While it's true we can have no direct contact with daughter and grandchildren, I feel protected by the stringent methods which are being applied.
Two supermarkets and the chemist are within walking distance but, should I not be able to leave the house my local council has a number I can call and request home delivery of both food and medicines.
We are far more worried about our daughter in England than we are about ourselves although she is Young and healthy and we are both in mid seventies.
The situation there is just so WISHY WASHY. My daughter has gone into work this morning but is not sure if she should or not.
She says there is still the head-in-the-sand attitude around of "We got through the Blitz so what's all the fuss about?"
She says she would feel "embarrassed" to wear disposable gloves when out - as we all do here - or to wear a mask (here unobtainable for ordinary folk).
Please don't worry everybody. If the shut down comes it will be for the good of everyone. Here, it is starting to curb cases but it's early days.
