Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my last post, especially Marlene who offered to lend me a mattress (sadly too far away) and Jean in Canada who shared her own experience of Dystonia and Torticollis. I am overwhelmed by your kindness.
Todays craft fair was the worst ever. I took a solitary £1 coin :( My day was made worthwhile, however, by a lady with learning difficulties who wanted to buy one of my £1 heart shaped brooches. I only had 2 left and she struggled to choose between red and gold. She chose the red one, paid for it and then I decided it was silly just having one left and gave the gold one to her free of charge. She made my day by bringing me a gift of a mince pie just before she left, thanking me for being kind to her. We hugged and smiled together :)
As it was the very last fair until March next year I decided to spend the £10 from my float on stuff for the local food bank. I like the idea of taking part in Reverse Advent each year and have started off as follows:
Dec 1st 2018
I bought the homeless young man in town some lunch. He chose a hot cheese and onion pasty and a tea. On my way past him back to the car I gave him a box of mince pies (which he said he enjoys), an apple and 3 satsumas
13 items popped into Sainsburys collection box including tinned ham, tuna and corned beef, 3 shower gels/baby bath, tinned soup x 2, spaghetti, toothpaste and baby wipes, tinned custard, cooking salt
This gives me a bit of breathing space but I will buy a total of 25 items before Christmas
Anyone else doing the Reverse Advent this year? Are you including good deeds as well as actual items?
Stay safe everyone wherever you happen to be. Take care x
