Working fast today.... Mum flies in from the UK tonight and I want to get the place picked up a bit before she gets here. I won't go crazy ( it freaks the family out if I get stressed about making the place perfect and I know that a) Mum probably doesn't care anyway and b) it won't stay perfect for more than 10 minutes once she arrives!! ) these days I just aim for tidy (ish) and clean (ish!) anyway, still got lots to do..!
Today's act of kindness was a very spontaneous one though probably wouldn't be for those adults amongst us who are organized!! :D I was looking out the window and noticed our recycling collection people had arrived to do our weekly pick up. They are a lovely organization, so helpful and just all round good people. I grabbed $10 from our collection and tore out of the house, baby in one hand, money in the other! I ran up to the guy and thrust the cash at him!! "Merry Christmas!! This is for you!!" Another day brightened! :D
