I drive them to school every day.

They used to take public transport but I think that’s too risky in case the Russians try to bomb us.

I worry if they have to go somewhere without me.

I get upset thinking that my eldest son will have to go off and fight any day now.

My husband and kids think I’ve lost the plot.

They don’t seem to see the very real danger we’re in.
