Schools out. Theatres, museums, galleries and restaurants have shut their doors. Our beloved city is starting to resemble a ghost town as we head towards the seemingly inevitable 'lockdown' of other European cities.
In houses across the capital, 'What's On' is going largely to refer to TV schedules. We are all working from home. One of us is by the sea in Suffolk, one looking after her elderly mother in California; the rest of us are staying in the Big Smoke. But we are still connected and are pulling together our know-how and the expertise of others to come up with ideas and suggestions to make the next few weeks and months a bit more bearable.
Our weekly newsletters will go out every Thursday, sign up here, and we will be flagging up suggestions and tips on social. We would love to hear from you what you are doing to get through it as a family.
It's going to be scary for lots of us. Hopefully we can give some practical help and raise a smile. Good luck and love to all.
