The other day I was at the cafe waiting for my take away coffee when I started chatting to a lovely girl that was pregnant with her first child. We got a long really well and I thought it would be great to catch up again but I didn't want to be all I'm Full Of Advice and freak her out, so we parted and I figured I'd probably bump into her again sooner or later.
The next night PB came home from work with a little envelope for me. Apparently someone had dropped it off. It had my name on the front and a little green star – the kind you get at school when you've done excellent work – on the back to seal it. Inside was a note from the girl I'd met the day before saying she'd love to catch up for coffee and hang out with me and BB sometime. She had left her phone number so I got in touch and we're going to catch up next week.
That's the second good random thing that has happened to me in the last few days and I'm very grateful for it. Although I still go through the annoyances of the daily grind, little gems like this really make me feel all warm and happy and good about life.
