Flushed with kindness

'Smile - you're beautiful!'
My kindness advent calendar is going well so far, and I've been able to reward my good intentions with a guilt-free chocolate from my other calendar for 10 days in a row. However, I was nearly beaten by logistics yesterday. The suggestion was:

Write a positive message on a post-it note and put in on your mirror at work...

Given that I work from home, this didn't seem feasible. However, it continued:

... or in a public place.

So while Mr Thorley was queuing at the checkout in Morrison's, I sneaked off and stuck a little message on the mirror in the Ladies. I was tempted to hide in one of the cubicles to see if there was any reaction from anyone, but I could see the headlines:

Local weirdo caught lurking in public toilets

So I just left it. I hope it made someone smile.

    1. Get yourself a pad of sticky-notes and have some fun, Wendy.

  3. I love this idea! I'm going to carry post-it notes with me from now on. :)

  4. Lovely idea, Julia - though it would have been fun to see someone's reaction to the note!
