KINDNESS DAY


Today in the UK its 'Kindness Day'.
A day when we can all do a small thing to make another persons day a bit better.
I was listening to the radio this morning and they were suggesting ways that you could do this and one simple thing was to smile at strangers.


I'm going to try this when we go out to meet out younger son Matt for lunch.
Watch this space and if I end up with a black eye for smiling at the wrong person I'll post a pic, lol

  1. If you take your mafia bodyguards ( previous post) you'll be fine. You have such a beautiful smile I can't imagine anyone taking offence:)

  2. I like smiling at random people....you can see them looking slightly puzzled and thinking 'Do I know her?'. Or more likely, 'Is she alright?' haha

  3. We don't just smile at strangers 'up north'. We smile, we say good morning and comment on the weather too. So many people have commented on how much better I am walking now. My poorly leg has been a great conversation starter

  5. I almost always smile when I'm out and about and most smile back. Some people do look back a little suspiciously. Haha.

  6. I had know idea it was 'Kindness Day' and no doubt the workman putting up the town's Christmas Tree who burped in my face didn't know either! Anyway, if you go back to my blog Briony I have responded to your comment regarding a chunky knitting pattern. Enjoy your lunch! x

  7. LOL!

    "WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?! DON'T LOOK AT ME!"

    I had no idea it was "Kindness Day." Fortunately I haven't been very cranky today.

  10. I try to do this all the time, but you cannot just smile at everyone for sure. What a cute photo!

  11. Yes, report back! lol

    Smiling seems like it should be simple, but a lot of the time it's really not :)

  12. You are so right in that even a smile can make a day. One time, when I was young, I went by my husband's work place for some reason...I know I was just there a minute and left. Well it was in an area where there were some one way streets. And I started to turn down the wrong way...and a person was coming....instead of scowling at me or doing something angry, she just smiled at me, and I mouthed the words I'm Sorry! to her. If she had gotten mad, it would have spoiled my whole day.

  14. LOL, I hope no one gives you a black eye for smiling at them. That wouldn't be very kind :)

    1. We find that each and every day we come across an idiot driver (or two) the problem is that nobody has a second to waste, they're all in such a hurry. Glad you were not hurt.
