Instead of spending self-isolation by themselves, three elderly women have decided to move in with each other and spend the time together.
Almost everyone in the world has been told to stay home for at least two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, and while some are enjoying the time at home, others would rather spend the time with their mates.
People over the age of 70 have been told by the U.K. government to stay at home and “bunker down” to avoid catching COVID-19.
Doreen, Dotty, and Carol, though, are three lifelong friends who thought that it would be more fun if they quarantined themselves together.
All three of them are in their 70s, and they have known each other for more than 40 years.
Doreen has since told BBC Breakfast that they’ll have a week in their own homes in self-isolation, and if they still feel well and are fit, they would then decide which house to go and live in.
The ladies told presenter Jayne McGubbin that they all had properties with a similar number of rooms, but each place had something else to offer, so deciding which home they will stay in was tough.
Apparently, Dotty and Jayne had nice back gardens when the three of them could exercise and chill, but Doreen had Netflix, and wanted to binge-watch The Crown with her mates.
To add to that, the ladies said that they’ll be getting in “a supply” of wine before they isolate themselves from the world.
The ladies have been friends for so long that they believe it wouldn’t feel right if they weren’t there for each other during these difficult times. Jayne said that they’ve been there for each other through divorces and loss, they go on holidays together, and they look after each other.
