I’M SURE I’M not the only one guilty of, in a life that now feels long ago, running to Pret at lunch and wolfing down a sandwich so quickly I barely tasted it. But I now have a new appreciation for the power of food. It’s been horrifying to hear that food banks are struggling to meet a surge in demand, but heartwarming to witness culinary kindness with people and businesses donating supplies to those most in need. And for those of us lucky enough, food – now so difficult to get hold of – has become a treat; cooking a form of entertainment. So I hope this issue inspires you to switch off and rustle up something new in your kitchen.…

My sister has breast and bone cancer and, like it or not, has to go into hospital every four weeks for treatment. The rest of the time she is in self-isolation. Like Georgia, the lady in your article, my sister fears that if she got Covid-19 she wouldn’t survive it, having a very compromised immune system. Life is tough for so many people at the moment, and we shouldn’t forget the daily battle cancer-sufferers face. Leona STAY CRYSTAL CLEAR I was surprised to see Grazia…

letter of the week

POLLY IS A PANACEA I have a renewed engagement with Grazia in its careful and uplifting navigation through Covid-19. Yes, you report on the pandemic and provide well-balanced advice on anxiety-busters, but it’s lovely to zone out on beauty and fashion too. I love how affordable fashion is styled with luxury wear – who cares if I can’t afford the Radziwill tote – it’s a bit of escapism! But Polly Vernon is the glue that holds it together. She combines positive thinking and advice for living without a hint of preachiness (Grazia’s mental health life skills, 20 Apr). And what a turn of phrase! She has boosted my wellbeing at this time.

“Return of the phone call? We’re hung up on it… Remember a couple of months ago, back when the only phone calls we made were to our bank or doctor? The phone call was so extinct, those under 20 could barely identify a landline. Well, last week, O2 reported a 25% rise in calls, with people spending 30% longer on the line since lockdown. The humble phone call is back as we rediscover the joy in hearing each other’s voices again. One-to-one calls provide an intimacy that can’t be achieved with emojis. They help us fight loneliness and feel closeness again. There are few things more comforting, so let’s hope it’s a habit we stay in love with long after lockdown is over.”…

love him and everything, but … (notes from a long-term relationship in lockdown)

WHEN MY MALE accoutrement and I made the decision to live together some time ago, we did it on the basis that either one of us could leave the house whenever they choose, for as long as they choose, for the purposes they choose. It never occurred to us there would come a day when that emotional and geographical get-out clause was removed. But, oopsie! Here we are. Two people who’ve thus far enjoyed a relationship defined by mutually respectful, significant independence, by me not minding a jot if he didn’t turn up as my plus one to weddings, and him not minding a jot if I made zero attempt to get on with his mates’ wives… Now spending every second of our lives together. As he said recently (if…

1. Up NAGA MUNCHETTY Not sure if it’s the unlikely but palpable emotional liberation lockdown is offering, or what: but NM’s BBC Breakfast wardrobe is distinctly elevated of late. 2. Up RON SWANSON, PARKS AND RECREATION The sheer genius of the man, now transplanted (in the form of his real-life counterpart Nick Offerman) to Devs on BBC Two, which is different, but jolly good. 3. New in KIA MARIAH TOBIN AND KEN BENBOW The carer and the cared for, who made our week with the gift of a printed cushion cover and some stellar subsequent TV interviews. 4. New in ROBIN ARZÓN Isolation is giving us room to experiment with new obsessional subjects, and new lust. Enter Robin, a Peloton instructor with a compelling Instagram. 5. Up MERRIT WEVER Formerly of the heavenly Nurse Jackie (Sky), now of the très thrilling Run (also Sky).…
