    I am so frustrated, all priority shopping is guven to elders. How single paents with no help will do grocery if they become sick. 3 weeks ago one of my children was coughing and other  was prescribed antibiotics from pharmacy on the other part of town (it was Sunday) when I told them I am sell isolating I was told to take taxi with kids. I saw so many children with parents in store today, one was coughing and had runny nose. It is bad

    I totally agree , Im single mum to 4yr old with no family ,no help at all ,most of my friends are isolating too !  shopping with her is soo stressful as she touches everything and is a massive thumb sucker!! What r we supposed to do ?? No shopping slots available not even being able to register for online shopping with some of the shops:(  , i really dont think its fair that only elderly ppl are being prioritised , I was with no milk or bread for days when i was ill myself , really sad times 🙁

    Tell me about it!! I get that the elderly and high risk are important but I had to take my 1 year old shopping yesterday!!! 1st and last time I try to pick up 2 weeks worth of shopping with a pram!!! (I shop for 2 weeks normally, not hoarding). My only saving grace was that my friends were allowed to take my shopping and drop it at my front door for me after I got the bus home. Have you got anyone who could do that for you perhaps? If you find another way please let me know, nearly cried when the pram kept tipping over and everyone was staring xx

    hi, it is completely unfair, hope the government change something cause if there will be more coronavirus cases it will be more dangerous to go out. I am checking every day delivery slots if there is something available and still nothing

    @Mum93 omg I remember going out with prams 🙂 one good part was you could put as many things under it as possible ( I think mine got limit 10kg but I usually put much more and it was squicking so badly after:D) Unfortunately I have no one to help. No brothers, no sisters, not many friends as I am kind of an introvert and I have moved to this part of the world 8 years ago and didn’t manage to get any strong bond with anyone. I don’t blame anyone for hoarding. I start blaming myself for not doing it on time, cause now those who were hoarding are stuck home safe without endangering themselves by going out to “hunt” for milk and pasta in local stores.
