Acts of May 2011

31 | 5 | 11 “there be pirates”

making Finnboss tandori chicken then taking him to see Pirates of the Carabean as tilda is on school camp

30 | 5 | 11 “pumkin in aisle 7!”

the usual monday at the supermarket, me with my trolley of wares, noticed a guy about my age and dress sense with a small child come up behind me with nothing but the small child in the trolley and he (not the small child but the fellow my age, and dress sense, holding a pumpkin, I asked him if he wanted to go before me as I was yet to place my items on the motorised checkout of which never seems to motorise at the correct time hence leaving more of the frozen section further back toward the end, it can take just one roll of cling wrap turned 90 degrees to take up a lot of real estate on those things to take up a lot of real estate for other items! Anyways back to the guy of similar age (and dress sense) i offered him my place in the line as he only having one pumpkin and I many items, and he accepted and went through prior to me.

This being the second last day of the 12 month of random acts of kindness i felt a longer explanation of my gallantry deed was needed!

29 | 5 | 11 “i want chocolate!”

after getting home from exhibition in manly and being all “inside” and warm, I rushed out in rain to get Mardi a Mars Bar, not sure what come over me as this excelled my acts, but she was a happy girl in her ugg boots on a bean bag, looking as elegant as ever!

28 | 5 | 11 “death in the family – part two”

has expected, Arastotle did not make the morning, i had to bury him under one of our plants in the yard with tears from Finn! I explained Arastotle will grow into the tree and always be with us

27 | 5 | 11 “death in the family – part one”

was comforting to Finn when his water went to shit in his axalotle tank, and aristotle the axalotle become very sick and lost weight. The night he stopped eating we knew it was going to be a rough one for the little guy. I was very comforting in explaining to Finn he may not be around in the morning?

1 | 5 | 11 “visited me mum in the shire”

may not sound like the kindest thing but visiting the folks in the shire does not happen as often as some, so a bit of kindness spread the other side of Tom Uglies Bridge today!
