A young client who'd been seriously assaulted asked for me to be her worker again. A long chat in a quiet room about standards and stuff and she said she felt much stronger. I do like helping the young ones....

Your OP is lovely. Restores your faith.

I have just arrived up at my DF's house today with the DC. First time up since his funeral, and all the fanfare around that. Friends have been tending his beloved garden and it's just looking beautiful. Lawn is mown, it's weed-free and the irises are all in multi-coloured bloom. I felt quite emotional coming up the steps and looking out over it to the familiar bay. He would be so pleased.

Thedowger --- I'm sorry about your loss, I can imagine that was a lovely but emotional experience.

Mine was yesterday, it was such a little act but it made my day.
I had been fired from my job Tuesday, had a interview yesterday (Wednesday ) it went worse then worse was in there for all of two minutes. No normal questions. Burst In to tears soon as I got out, i had so much riding on it etc etc Decided to get some shopping n go home.
Leaving town my bags splits, all my shopping every where, a lady who had seen gave a sorry smile but walked on past came running back and gave me her bags that she had ready for her shop.

It made a shit day that bit nicer.

Yesterday on the phone with my son, he worked out the value of a 20% discount voucher on a spend value of X, in his head. Big deal as he is dyslexic and really struggles with mental calculations. Very proud smile

Big group of menacing skateboarder types all rushing to help a geeky lad onto the train with his double bass yesterday. One of them said, 'Blimey mate, that's a massive guitar.' grin

Yesterday, my DH met me for lunch. As we were sitting there, he looked at me and said 'You look beautiful today'.

I was dressed in plain work clothes and wasn't wearing a lick of make up. He made me feel amazing (and like a giggly teenager! grin)

I rescued an exhausted Canada goose a few days ago, that was flapping around residential streets. A neighbour restrained it, we checked it was uninjured, and I drove, took it up to the ponds about a mile away where it seemed to swim off quite happily.

Walked up there today with the dog, and I think I could pick out "our" goose in the gaggle, skinnier and scruffier than the rest but tucking in to the treats being thrown by some young children with the rest of them.

Go Goosey smile

Ah lovely. How nice people can be. Heard a lovely story about Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters spotting a man weeping in the audience inviting him on stage turned out the mam had just.buried his mother.

Walking back to my car I saw A handy man was trying to measure a length on a piece of plywood. His tape measure kept slipping slightly, making it impossible for him to measure accurately. I held the end of the tape measure for him. When he thanked me he said 'most people wouldn't have helped.' Made me feel special!

A thoroughly shit day today.

I went to lie down for a bit as I have a massive headache. DD (7) came in and said "call me if you need anything Mummy. You're my Mummy and the most important person in my life, I love you"

Bless her. <teary>

I was trying with laughter reading the fart thread. In fact its had me snorting for two days. There's nothing like a good belly laugh when you are having a rough time.

I got a payrise and a 1K tax rebate today as well as being asked to go on a trip thus avoiding horrible Friday P5 class. Top day.

DS crawled for the first time today. I missed it, but his dad who works so hard to enable me to be a SAHM saw it. I was so pleased that he got to see a "first" as I get spoiled seeing most of them.

Dd (9, ASD) is pretty much non verbal but getting a few words. Today she kept being cuddly and saying "I love you".
