Nice things DO happen on a gloomy day!

Chatting to a lady in front of me in the queue to pay, she admired some cala lilies I'd bought. I told her they had been reduced so I 'd bought one for myself and one for my neighbour.
As she paid for her small basket of groceries she asked if I could use a voucher she had. She didn't live in the area so wouldn't need it, she said.
Lovely lady! The voucher was for £4.50 off my shopping! smile

It's that thing about doing something kind for other people isn't it. Like letting someone with just 3 items go in front of you in the checkout. Gives you a little "good deed for the day" glow.
My day started badly with an email from my sister pulling out of a get together I was looking forward to sad sad sad.
Then i did my U3A yoga group in my house - usual hall booked. It was nice having 6 creaky people doing yoga in my front room! Bit of a tight fit but I managed it.
My favourite local coffee shop owner has now officially cracked savoury muffins. This was a suggestion I made to her. Had to try the 2 versions (lunch) and the one with cheese and red onions was spot on. NZ would approve.
And now I am off to my own yoga class - it has been far too long.
