Thanks for your reply.
I do voluntary work 2 days a week, which I find hard sometimes, as I get tired standing up all the time! I recently joined a "knit and natter" group with the local church and am knitting a baby blanket now.
I still feel lonely but I think that is partly due to my age. I have got better at passing the time these last few months as I just go shopping locally as I don't feel up to travelling very far as I don't drive.
I am luckier than some people as I have family that visit.
Yeah, I see what you mean. It must be hard. It's really great you're volunteering and part of the "knit and natter" group - that sounds like a lot of fun. :)

Maybe you could increase the amount of time you spend volunteering, if you don't feel it's enough for you; you could maybe volunteer somewhere else, thereby meeting new people and helping a new charity?

Do you read? That's a brilliant way to pass the time. Also, you could write your own books/poetry/short stories. If you're interested in that, you could join a writing group too.

Wish you all the best.
