I popped to The Range in the week for some slate for my herb bed, as I wandered I saw this jar, it's big and beautiful, and perfect for cacti. The rope section hides the soil and the nasties are tucked away from Will's tiny hands.
Plus it was under a tenner.
It's in our sitting room.
I have finished the heal of my 1st sock
The colours are very pretty.
A lovely surprise
Friday lunchtime daughter brought Will to me, whilst she took her cat to the vet, Will was very tired, so I put him to bed for a couple of hours. Whilst at home, the door bell rang, it was the lady I had given the fabric on Thursday, she came back with the above bunch of flowers, she felt guilt because I would not take any money for the fabric, which was perfect to make waistcoats for 7 dwarfs. She had her young daughter with her, aged about 6 or 7, who gave me one of her sweets, because I had made her mummy happy.
Later on Friday hubby and oldest son was back to spend the night at ours, we all went to Southampton to a pie and mash place, in the carpark, hubby at the pay machine called out did we have a pound coin, to which Richard and I said no, you will have to pay by card. A lady was walking by, stopped and gave me a pound from her purse, and wished us a good evening.
So whilst there are times when one person can upturn your world in any wicked way she desires, there are lovely people about, who are caring and thoughtful, and twice brought a smile to my lips.
And as soon as I can I will play it forward with a act of kindness to a stranger.
PS. the pie and mash was divine.
