We're fine at the moment but I'm wonderingif there's anything I can do to prepare us for the possibility of two weeks in isolation.

I'm not one to stockpile, just trying to be sensible.

There's five of us in the house DH, DD 11, DD 7, DS 3 we don't have loads of space in our fridge/freezer so I'm thinking we need at least one week's worth of food that we could just cook from the store cupboard, basic toiletries and medicines, paracetamol, calpol etc.

What else would be good to have ready just in case?

Batteries. Creative cooking isn't easy when the battery in your digital scales decides to die and you have to guess what 1 ounce looks like Hmm
