I was not going to blog today
I didn't think I had anything to share except for last night's film review
But as usual
I was wrong.
I didn't sleep last night..a case of too much coffee after the cinema
I was up early this morning taking Chris to the station, so staggered off to bed on my return for a quick nap. When I eventually got up to let the animals out, my favourite scarf had been looped carefully around the back door handle. I must have dropped it into the rain soaked road when I returned .
Not a big deal.
But a thoughtful little action from a passing neighbour.
( in actual fact I found out later that I had left the scarf in the cinema and my cousin and his wife noticed it and dropped it off this morning!)
A couple of days ago
A bag of cabbage leaves had been dropped off by the gate with a note attached which simply said
" for Mary"
Last Week I delivered some eggs to Rosemary & Bernard in the village and collected a gift of several jars of homemade preserves. Each one carefully prepared and labelled.....and
On my way home affable despot Jason presented me with a huge bag of much needed egg boxes
Nothing huge...but little kindnesses for sure
This little chap was given to me the other day too
It was a " I thought you may like this" kind of gift
He turned out to be a vintage 1940s Steiff Scottie Dog
How sweet is that?
Little kindnesses like these help the world go round a little more smoothly me thinks.
Ok I will rephrase that
Little kindnesses make my world run a little smoother
....................... and happier
In way of book ending this entry
Here are two separate gifts of bread left by locals for the birds
