Me again. I hope you aren’t getting tired of hearing from me. 😬
So I’ve had a “few” offers from neighbours wanting to help. Offers to help with grocery runs for the self isolated. Offers of meal preparation. One of our neighbours might have bought a little extra toilet paper and is happy to share if you don’t have enough – seriously.
I’ve also heard that there’s interest in hearing how you are all coping. Any tips, creative ideas, strategies or stories you might like to share. You could reply to this post if you are ok with letting neighbours know you are fine, made it home safely, what you are doing to keep entertained.
Any interest in food sharing? To minimize social contact we could use the clubhouse. Leave a jar of soup or casserole in the fridge labelled and dated? I hesitate to mention that. In this neighborhood the fridge could be full by sunset.
Visits with social distancing are possible. Out for our walk we crossed paths with Chris and Louise the other day and decided to walk together. We were on the shoulder, they were in the middle of the road, Oakley (their dog) was conflicted in between. But we got in a visit. So you could book a walking date! There’s hardly any car traffic so during the day not too much risk of being run over.
If you would like help, there are neighbours that sincerely would like to help. Energy to spare. So you would not be imposing. Don’t be shy. Let me know if you could use something. I know people who know people. 🤗
