Her daughter and mine are also friends, so the four of us move between our two homes on a daily basis, sharing glasses of wine, cups of tea and so on.

Last week I discovered her daughter had Covid but was not self-isolating.

She didn’t tell me at the time and her daughter has been in our home.

She was asymptomatic and it was only after her mum let slip that I discovered the truth.

My mother, who is 76, lives with me and is very vulnerable.

But my best friend can’t understand why I am so upset.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is very understandable that you are angry that this woman didn’t self-isolate.

This was a selfish move which could have put you and your family at risk.

But rather than lose a good friendship, calmly explain to your friend your reasons, then say you would like to move on.
