Pete’s family were in isolation. Not that they were infected, but were considered to be in a higher risk category.
The two kids were kept home from school and unusually quiet in their room, so he went up to investigate.
What he saw brought tears to his eyes as the pair of them had hatched a plan to help the elderly in their road. Houses and the number of occupants were being placed on the dressing table like a monopoly board.
Pete had forgotten about the two widows that lived alone, a pensioner couple where the wife was the husband’s carer, and realised another couple whose son was living with them would be OK as regards shopping.
‘It’s a good plan kids, but you’re in isolation too, so can’t do anything to help’.
‘Oh we know that Dad. We might be, but our friends aren’t. This is for them.’
