Because the garage knocked £10 off my bill after learning that I was ex-military, I decided to put it into a collection box for the Change Step charity that helps many ex-military.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Did my good deed for the day today, was working when 2 young girls (like no more than 6 or 7 years old) came up to me and said they had lost their mum. I walked them down to where they had last seen her and she was there looking for them. Never seen such relief on a mum's face. She was really grateful.

You should be proud of yourself Mark as there are not many who would do that nowadays.

Excellent Mark and speaking as Mum you did the right thing, the trouble nowadays is that many people a fearful to go anywhere near young children sadly, like you Mark I will always go to a child's aid.

Again well done to you Sir.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Will admit I did hesitate for a few seconds but felt it was the right thing to do, plus there was a heavy crowd in the clothing section so it's not as though I could have done anything without a large number of witnesses.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

It feels wrong to write this in a happy thought thread but last night a Marie Curie Nurse stayed with my Mum from 9:45 to 7am this morning to allow my Dad to get a full nights sleep. It has been arranged that this will be done three times per week, I'm pleased that my Dad it is getting help and getting a good nights sleep as I was worried that he might not be able to rest but he said today that he was quite surprised that he went out like a light and got up at 6:30 he said this made a huge difference knowing that his wife is getting cared for by professionals. My sister and I have been going over and staying one night a week between us but our Dad was up and down like a yo yo checking on our Mum, I'm just glad that he is getting some rest & managing to get some sleep. My Dad is right these people are the professionals and truly worth their weight in gold imo.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Woke up this morning to a clear blue sky, the sound of helicopters and the sight of elite SBS troops doing helicopter parachute training overhead. We've also been lucky enough to see some of their seaborne activities from the beach. Osem jnr#2 was fascinated by all the activity.

Yes they are wonderful and it's great that the service is there for you. Mrs Osem volunteers for a local hospice a few hours a week and she'd be the first to sing the praises of those who choose to devote themselves to such a worthy cause whether paid or not. There are plenty of caring people about and frankly we don't hear enough about them.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Back home from our holiday in Poole. Had a nice time holidaying for the first time with Osem Jnr # 2 but he was really good and enjoyed doing lots of climbing, trampolining and swimming/watersliding as well as watching the all the helicopters and parachutists overhead most days.

Can't wait for a long hot bath...

Poole is a place our family have good memories of.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Visited St Ives today as at long last we have a sunny warm day. Drove along the very scenic and twisty B3306 from St Just. Stopped at the Gurnard's Head Hotel as there is a great walk down to the headland after which the hotel is named. You often see seals and dolphins in the bay but not today.

St Ives was really busy and I had to park up in the main carpark on the hill and walk into town. Warm in the sun.

By the time I started back the skies had already clouded over. They say there's rain coming. Again.
