If there’s one thing that 2020 has brought us, it’s isolation. Sitting at home, unable to enjoy all the things we’ve been so used to. Meeting with people, talking and shaking hands – it seems like such an alien thing now.Yes, having all these online services is great. We can have items delivered to us in double-quick time, we can choose all the TV and movie content in the world and have it delivered to our screens. Likewise, we can have fast-food dropped off in double-quick time and we can contact friends all over the world for free using WhatsApp or Facetime.However, it’s all screen-based, and the lack of real social interaction is something we’re all suffering from.
