I have an elderly neighbour...a really lovely woman. We have been friends for 32 years.
She used to help me with my chronic disability some years ago and we return the favour by helping her, after she lost her hubby suddenly.
We used to go to social clubs together, but neither of us has ventured out much in the pandemic.
We ring each other often and I have been amazed how cheerful she has remained throughout this time.
But today she rang and said she was a bit down. Her tv remote wouldn't work and she had tried new batteries. She never asked if hubby could go round...but he did.
Her tv has actually conked, after 15 years. Poor lass, it`s been a good companion and friend in her lonely times.
She`s going to treat herself to a new tv. Bless her.
