I'm ashamed to say that I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself over the last week or so. I've been in pain with my back which meant that I have been unable to bend to pick anything up which I've dropped, nor could I reach up above my head even to dust things. The pain radiated down my left leg causing my knee to feel numb too. Painkillers only took the edge off the pain. What the **** is going on? Anyway....enough of the pity party 😏 Sorry.....
Acts of kindness:
1) By using my O2 Priority app I can get a hot drink from Greggs each week for free and, as there is a shop close to the allotment, we often go there. Last week I accompanied G just to get out of the house (not to work!) and as it was pouring with rain we went to get our free drinks. G got his but mine wouldn't connect however many times I tried so I gave up and ordered a cup of tea and a pizza slice anyway. The young chap behind the counter had witnessed my struggles and gave me my tea for free anyway. Bless him for his kindness.
2) I have been trying for the last 2 weeks to grab another 'Too Good to Go' bag from Morrisons as the last one was so good. 6 times I ordered one only for them to be cancelled by the store each time. On Wednesday night I got lucky and arrived at 5pm to pick up my bag. It wasn't ready....again... so I had to wait while a young chap picked the goods for me.
I was stunned! He handed me a big box of food which I struggled to carry and had to place in a trolley to get to the car ......
Courgettes,, broccoli, parsnips, 2 packs peaches, 4 onions, 2 packs french beans, grapes, melon slice, sweet peppers, 4 wonky lemons, asparagus and baby plum tomatoes.
There was far too much for me to add up the prices as were were hungry and needed to eat but the value is stunning. I paid £3.09
I know this is far from the normal amount of food you get in the offer but I shared it with my daughter, froze what I could and enjoyed the rest. Nothing will be wasted and it has helped our food budget in a big way. God bless the young man concerned.
I hope you are all having/ have had a great Jubilee weekend.
God Bless x
