I could relate to a few things in your post! Like you I'm a senior, and have the same trouble with very limited freezer space so I have to keep going out to the supermarkets to restock - and have to go even more frequently because the stockpiling means that many of the things I need simply aren't there and I have to go to one shop after another, or go again the next day, etc, when I'd rather not be there!
I moved to a new town just before the fires - came down with influenza just after arriving here, knew nobody, spent about 8 weeks sick, by then we ran into Christmas/New Year so nothing was happening socially for me to join, then bushfires close to here and severe heatwaves, and just when it was cooling down and I could actually start getting a social life together, the Covid19 and everything is cancelled!
In my street I'm disappointed that none of the neighbours talk to each other or mix at all. During the heatwaves, which were incredible and I have no aircon - my neighbours ran their aircons all day and night and never checked on me. My little much loved dog nearly died despite all my efforts. I still don't know how we got through it. I wanted to move away but now we're stuck with the virus making moving near impossible (plus other factors for me, ie. not much money).
I have elderly friends in the City who are in their 90s and disappointed none of their neighbours have asked if they need any help, or are they OK? I am disappointed that more people don't make any effort to make contact. At Christmas I put a Xmas card into all the neighbours' letterboxes from me to say hello, but no response from any of them.
I have plenty of interests but was looking forward to some U3A courses, book club, enjoying cosy cafes in the cold weather ahead etc. We have to make the best of it, I have take away coffee in the park and get an ice cream and have it in the park and we go for long walks and at least meet other people walking their dogs too.
You're welcome onto my thread anytime, it's Anyone had to spend days alone with nobody to talk to? We are a few ladies who chat about this and that, mostly our dogs, daily life, whatever. Take care. I know all about cliquey coastal towns too... although I'm inland now (big mistake).. cheers.
