A woman went to check on her elderly mother during lockdown, to see if she needed any shopping and was surprised to discover there was only one thing on her list
During the coronavirus lockdown, some people will be going shopping for their vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.
When doing this, it’s important to make sure they’re stocked up on the essentials.
But for one woman, her most essential item came as a big surprise to her daughter.
Kelly Muller dropped by her 82-year-old mum’s house to see if she needed anything to get her through her self-isolation.
The pair were talking through a window, when her mother, Annette, produced a huge handmade sign, with an important message on it for Kelly.
In bold black letters, the sign proclaimed that the older woman needed more wine.
And to hammer her point home, Annette also waved an empty bottle of wine around.
Kelly, who lives in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and is one of six kids, found the whole thing hilarious and later posted a photo of the sign on Facebook.
She said: “Went to my 82 year old mother’s house today to check on her and to see if she needed anything.
“She was anxiously waiting for me at the window.”
Her post quickly went viral, with thousands liking and sharing.
Many people also commented to say how relatable they had found the whole thing.
“I aspire to be her,” joked one person.
Another wrote: “Love it…can I borrow the sign?”
Kelly later shared an update to confirm that Mama Muller had gotten her wine, sharing another photo of Annette smiling with a full bottle in her hand.
When it comes to wine, the grandma isn’t picky – claiming they all taste the same to her.
She normally enjoys sharing a drink with her daughter and they regularly meet up to chat and have a glass.
Speaking about her mum, Kelly added: “She is a social butterfly who misses her NHL hockey and her friends and family, who constantly drop in for visits.
“She has a great sense of humour and is enjoying all this attention. In her own words ‘I’ve gone Viral’.”
