So there we all are - stuck at home with our children, husbands, boyfriends, flat-mates, cell-mates and parents in a coronavirus-induced lockdown. Blue murder springs to mind.

The unprecedented events of the past few weeks have thrown us into uncharted waters. One minute the nation is panicking about Brexit, the next we're panicking about toilet paper and impending doom.
