Thank you and what an inspiration

One of the fab people I met at my Folksy picnic was Pomona, since then I have regularly read her blog. One of her previous ones spoke deeply to me about something I believe in, the act of kindness and random kindness. Since then I have been thinking about it alot and how I could do more. Today I read her most recent blog entry and this was even more inspiring. I would urge you to read it. I also want to say thank you to her for the fab comments she has left on my little blog.
I am going to plan how I shall carry out my acts of kindness only the rest of my long journeys to work this week.
On another very random subject my lego death star is over half done now, I never stop being amazed at the quality and thought that goes into lego designs. As I am building this one I love how I keep building parts that I recognise from the films. Well done Lego. I have loved you since I was a kid and don't think I will ever stop.

Just catching up before work...many months ago a lady ordered something from me on folksy - and in a bizarre twist of the seller/buyer relationship sent me a big parcel of beautiful fancy wools. I wasn't in a very happy place at the time and the parcel made me cry - it was such a wonderful thing to be the recipient of a random act of kindness. I have since found that the warm glow comes to the giver, too :-)

You have already committed your first act of kindness - by being so nice about my post! Thank you for visiting and your lovely comment, and I love hearing about practical examples like Nifty's above - it's all grist to the mill!

Hope the term is going well - PB keeps telling me how she loves Year 6, and all those opportunities to help and supervise Reception children - maybe we have a teacher in the making!
