Bookcrossing makes it easy to commit random acts of kindness…
So, the other day I noticed someone wanted a book that I’ve read, and own in hardback (a signed copy actually). So I got in touch with her and got her address and sent off the book (only on loan, as I want to keep the book).
Two days later I got an email from someone in Germany who noticed I had a book on my wish list and she wanted to post it to me.
See, what goes around comes around.
Next I must loan someone some money!!!
I’m on email forum (to do with books)... and recently someone posted a few emails about a shitty time she was having. It related partly to her daughter who will be 5 in a few days. So I went out and bought the daughter a book of fairy stories as a birthday present and posted it off to her.
It seems like a strange thing to do when I think about it, but it felt right.
Well, it’s not the most random act, because it was for a friend.
But I really enjoyed getting J to clear out her wardrobe. Once we had done the wardrobe (and filled 2 bags for the charity shop) J continued on the suitcase and gleefully chucked things out she hasn’t worn for ages (or that she knows she isn’t comfortable in when she wears it). It felt really good to help her in this way.
Oh, and I made her lunch and her afternoon snack (healthy) and I’ve started coaching her on eating habits. This feels good.
