Speaking of feel good but essentially useless efforts , I've had my NHS volunteer app on for 96 hours now and have only gotten 2 requests for help.  Both were from the same lady who thinks she might need someone to shop for her in the future but right now she's just bored.  I keep getting emails from the NHS saying that someday soon they are going to ask us to do something.

I tell you Jim., you have already helped that lady more than you know just by confirming that you will be there for her when she does need you.  :)

  That's nice, I hadn't thought about it that way.  She may not know it, but I don't think I'll ever be assigned to help her again to protect both of us.  But anyway, I think I made her a little less bored at least.

I think most people are trying to keep calm and carry on and to  not burden other people unless they have to. There are a lot of local groups and volunteers outside of the official app that are helping people out too. We had a flyer through our door on the first week of the lockdown. We haven't used them yet, but we would if my in-laws couldn't help. (Though they are supposed to pick up my medication for me and I run out of it tomorrow... honestly, I'm annoyed by this as I told my husband it could have been picked up as early as last Wednesday).
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

I’ve been wondering the same thing.  I hope I didn’t offend when I asked if everything was okay as she seemed a bit frustrated at the UK when she was always so in love with it before.

Big apologies if I’ve upset you Nan.  That certainly wasn’t my intention.  Hugs!

I don't think it came across that way,  hopefully Nan didn't either. It seemed to me to be a caring and perceptive question.
