Busy busy day! Spent almost the whole day with my friend and her kiddies, which was really lovely. I'm painfully shy most of the time but finally feel like I'm coming out of my shell more with her and feeling really comfortable and relaxed which is a really liberating feeling. Our kids get on great too which really helps, although you can definitely tell that mine is an only child as he needs/wants far more adult interaction! It's great to see him enjoying himself with other kids though and her girls are so lovely with him it melts my heart! Spending time with them all made me really happy and (thankfully!) they seemed to as well. My RAOK was buying my little one dinner as a thank you for being so good and polite and well behaved. Not much, but it made him smile :)

On a side note, I experienced a RAOK earlier today when some builders working on the house next door came to my friend's house to tell me I had a flat tyre. They even offered to jack the car up and put on a new one for me - a really lovely gesture. Thankfully I had a compressor to fix it myself but I'm so grateful for their kindness :)  Also, while I remember, the little person also experienced a RAOK today too! His friend from school gave him a three-day subscription to his favourite website (this, after saying she would keep them all for herself!). I thought that was a really kind gesture and said a lot for her as a person. Warmed my heart!

    "No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves" - Amelia Earhart
