♛ What's New? - 15 March 2018 WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND..!
Wow, what a day...!
I started my usual Wednesday day this week heading to Tenterden for lunch at Prezzo, (fantastic food and service) and then drove to the neighbouring village of Appledore, Kent, after buying my wife a present in Tenterden.
My first point of call was to visit The Old Forge to buy old books. I ended up buying a book, a present for myself and promising the two lovely sales assistants a piece of fresh cake from Miss Mollett's High Class Tea Room a few doors down, as I was heading for scone and tea. On my way out of the door, I briefly met a stunning lady who was thinking of purchasing a table. I unexpectedly ended up meeting her and her husband in the tea room.
I suggested she taste Assam tea and if she did not like it, ill buy it. She liked it, but I still brought it.
A present for my wife, cakes for sales assistants whom I never before and then a pot of Assam tea to someone I never met also...
I then headed to the Outlet, Ashford and as I parked my truck, a car pulled up next to me, and a young Asian man and his girlfriend gave me a free parking ticket with several hours left. I thanked him.
I then brought another present for myself and on my way out of the Outlet, I flagged down a car entering the Outlet, and a car full of young Asians pulled over. I gave them a free car parking ticket which delighted them.
Previous News Item: 09 November 2017 Inspired by a post in the Herne Bay Chatter Group (Random Acts of Kindness Day in Herne Bay); I headed for Herne Bay town centre, early to bank and early for lunch.
A local lady sitting next to me known locally as Babs, had finished her meal (Mortimer's restaurant) but wanted the waitress to walk her to the bus stop outside at the local library due to the fear of the main road. Obviously, the waitress couldn't do this as she was working. So, I offered to take her once I had finished my meal. I offered her dessert. She wanted ice-cream. I had paid for this and her soda-water and then walked her to the bus stop (holding hands), and waited until the bus for 'triangle' arrived, made sure she got on the bus safely, and I then headed home.
Rare for me to wear my Isn't It Nice…Being Nice cap locally, but the post in the Herne Bay Chatter Group gave me today's 'kindness lift'.
Previous News Item: 18 September 2017: My today's Random Act of Kindness is directed at two Herne Bay surgeries, headed by Dr Carter; namely The Park Road Surgery and their sister surgery; Herne & Broomfield Surgery.
Dr Carter and all members his staff, provide an excellent service to patients. I have been particularly grateful for their professionalism and dedication shown to me since I moved into Bullockstone in October 2000.
I have today treated both surgeries to a tray of Ferrero Rocher. I attached a short note with a kindness card attached to it.
A small act of kindness and niceness goes a long way. People complain, but not often praise.
Caring is Sharing and Sharing is Caring. Previous News Item: 07 September 2017:
An upset parent in Herne Bay posted an item on a Facebook Group on the evening of the 06 September 2017 to inform the Group (Herne Bay Chatter) that her son is devastated. He had saved up to buy a set of team football boots. Not cheap, but he brought them and then somebody stole them from his parents porch.
So I suggested the parents go and buy another pair and give me the bill. But then, another Facebook group member sent me a PayPal payment and made a contribution towards the cost. This person, Neenah Lou, showed great human kindness. I sent the full payment to the parent, via PayPal, added a little extra for her to enjoy a pot of tea and a scone/cake, and she was delighted.
