Some comments heard this week:

‘My shopper is marvellous – nothing is too much trouble for her.’

‘What a wonderful service my shopper provides. Deliveries always arrive with a smile.’

‘I’m not lonely; I have some new friends who phone me regularly and who let me know what’s going on. I’m looking forward to meeting them when this is all over.’
