  • Happy *checks calendar* Wednesday... How are you all doing? I have definitely been experiencing ups and downs at the moment. Some days I’m holding back the tears, others I feel I have got the hang of this new way of life... I’ve been trying to give back a little to the community, to do something to help in all this. Last night I received confirmation that I have been accepted as a volunteer for the NHS, and I’ve been uploading daily videos to my work’s Facebook page of me reading The Railway Children for those who can’t read themselves, or just want to feel less lonely during this time. Let me know if there are any more ways I can help.

  • Officially an NHS volunteer. I can’t get out and about but I can call vulnerable people. It’s nice to be able to contribute in a small way.

  • DAY FOUR • WORK FROM HOME • . 
Today marks the end of my final day in work for I don’t know how long 🤷🏻‍♀️ tomorrow is my first day on furlough, and while I won’t be working, I’ve got lots to do to keep me busy! . 
Firstly, I’ll now have a lot more time to spend on my blog and get back to writing. Something that I’ve definitely neglected recently! . 
I’ve also volunteered to be an NHS volunteer to help with with COVID-19 response 🦠 . 
And finally, I have a wedding to plan! I’m so lucky that (so far) my wedding hasn’t been affected by this pandemic, and I’m keeping everything crossed that it won’t be 🤞🏼hopefully I’ll be able to get all of the wedding planned during social distancing (apart from things like dress shopping) 👰🏻 .

  • Well, I've passed the pedo checks, and my app is all set up and ready to roll as an NHS responder as of tomorrow. Although I swear, if any of these 'emergency requests' turn out to be any of you HU5 lot, running low on Merlot or Sancerre, I'll not be happy 😂

  • As we really don’t know when our lives will be back to normal , how long this is going to go on for and how many people it is going to affect. I wanted to try and help. 
I can’t bare to think there is people out there who need help , a chat , reassurance , anything at all!
So I have applied and have been accepted to be an emergency responder. 
This enables me to do lots of things to support the NHS if and when they need someone.
This includes :
Delivering food and medicine 💊 
Transportation 🚗 
Befriending phone calls 📞 
I strongly feel anybody who is safe and able to sign up to do so! They need us. 💙✨💙✨💙✨💙 #NHSvolunteerresponders #goodsam #GOODSAM #nhs #supportthenhs #royalvoluntaryservice #lancaster #covid-19 #coronavirus

  • As business is a bit quieter and I have more time on my hands I decided to give back to the people in my local community and hopefully make a small difference to some peoples lives.
I am now a confirmed volunteer for the NHS to help those in need during this horrid time to make it a little bit easier.

  • Spirit: Give.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“Giving to others does amazing things like reducing your blood pressure and improving your sleep. Practicing random acts of kindness, volunteering time, or simply saying ‘thank-you’ all work wonders for your well-being” (wheelofwellbeing.org).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When it comes to “acts of kindness”, the British People never fail to make a statement!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In just 24 hours, over 500k people signed up for the NHS Volunteer Responder scheme!⁣ My friend @cookwithcorinne is one of them. Thank you!⁣⁣
⁣
Within communities, many are looking for ways to thank key workers. ⁣
⁣⁣
@shea_nyrorganic is participating to the King's College Hospital Charity Hospital Heroes Appeal, contributing Neal's Yard Remedies Organic goodies to care packages for hardworking staff. Check her post for more info.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Parents at my son’s school are fundraising for hampers to gift to the teachers who have volunteered to work during the Easter holidays, including Good Friday and Easter Monday (…yes, you read right!).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As for me, I hope I have put a smile on my neighbours in the past few days.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
👶🏻 Little neighbour Leo turned 1. The kids made him cards and we wrapped a present (with xmas wrapping paper…that all we had in the house!) and left it at his door 🎁. We then sang him happy birthday via Whatsapp! 🎉🎉🎉⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Then last Friday I found out one of my neighbours had a temperature and was feeling under the weather. I also realised two of my other neighbours celebrated their birthday that week.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I therefore decided to organise a little cheer me up gift for all of them. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One of the perks of being a @nealsyardremedies Organic consultant is having a little stock of lovely smelling products at hand…I picked a selection of bath bottles (Geranium and Grange foaming bath and Beauty Sleep foaming bath) and a few face cream samples and I delivered the pretty Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic bag to their front door. Blue Bottle Bliss. 💙💙💙⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Have you been on the receiving or giving hand of acts of kindness in the past week? Would you mind sharing with us what it was?⁣⁣

  • ❤️🇬🇧VOLUNTEER TO HELP THE NHS DURING THIS TERRIFYING & HEARTBREAKING TIME🇬🇧❤️ Our hearts are missing these two so much right now. Thankfully we can still talk on FaceTime or on the phone. Sadly some people don’t have people phoning them, especially the elderly, who may be very lonely and rather scared right now.  Therefore this morning I’ve signed up to be an NHS volunteer to help during the Coronavirus crisis.  There are four different roles, from transporting healthy patients who have been discharged back home, to just chatting on the phone to those most vulnerable.  We are all in this together! If everyone just gives a little bit of time to support others, we can make the biggest difference.  Not only can we help the NHS by keeping people safely at home, we can spread love and rebuild our community spirit. It’s trickier if you have kids or an underlying health condition, however the ‘Check-in and Chat’ option allows you to volunteer at home.  I truly believe that amidst this horror that our world is experiencing, we can find peace and love by caring for other people.
