There is a movement that I have been aware of for some time - random acts of kindness and this last week it has happened to me twice!
Firstly on Tuesday I took my wife's car to be washed professionally. When I arrived in St Asaph the car wash was closed so I went for a coffee at a place called Jacob's Ladder.

Today it happened again. We went to Llandudno for various things, bits and pieces for our daughter Charlotte to make Children in Need cakes and biscuits to sell at school and to go to the pictures to see Tintin (worth seeing in my view). We went into three shops looking for cellophane bags for the cookies and buns and in the last they had some at 2 pence each but only the one bag that was open and in use at the back of the shop. When we said what we wanted them for the shop owner gave us his entire stock for nothing! The shop - Let Them Eat Cake. They have some great cake decorations as well.
It makes me feel that there is still some hope left that kindness and generosity are alive and well in the world.
Incidentally I have been out on the bike once or twice and in the gym as well - it's been a busy week, OK!
