Hello Lovely Lake Worth People in the lovely town that has been brimming with activity this weekend….I have been glued to Facebook watching through the photographs how the street painting is pinning out….it looks wonderful and as usual, the volunteers and people who keep it going each year appear to have pulled out all the stops to ensure it’s success. I hope that it stays dry for the next three weeks o that some of the work will be left intact on the road for me to see when I come back. One day I will attend the festival…….
Well, it looks as if our weather is back to normal here in England, no rain all week! In fact to has been half term for schools so children have been off school and the town and seafront have been hopping. We have a lot to offer for families here and that is when you appreciate what is out there. Of course the weather is crucial, we are English and therefore will carry on regardless and still enjoy it but the sun was out and despite a chill in the air, it has been perfect and I am sure that business has been booming!
Currently the most favourite place for the children in my family is Barleylands, a farm come craft centre, situated in the countryside and full of great things for kids to do, totally safe the older ones can go off on their own, a rarity these days, and the younger ones can stay under my watchful gaze…and we can stay all day, feed animals, play in the play barn, slide down slides so high they take your breath away, bounce on an inflated cushions so large 50 youngsters can bounce at the same time and do somersaults, a perfect day out!
Going back to the weather which as you know has been horrendous for a while and some people have been flooded time and time again. The most heartening thing about this has been the volunteers who have helped get these people back on track and helped out with sandbags and boats, food, accommodation, counselling and so much more….even our young princes William and Harry went to help and actually asked the press photographers why they were not helping…..some put down their cameras and did just that……shamed into helping. Every time there is a disaster it is the armies of volunteers, the unsung heroes that are there tirelessly giving of their time…………..this happens all over the world……I noticed them at the street painting quietly organising in the background. Often it is the same faces….I always see Tammy, AnnaMaria, Nadine, Mary Lindsay to name but a few….let’s hear it for them!
My 100 happy days are going well and it serves to make me think about how lucky I am, there has not been a day where something has not happened to make me feel happy, I have another 60 days to go, most of them will be spent in Lake Worth,…….easy. I like the idea that AnnaMaria had of documenting the days with photographs, nice to look back on!
The Random Acts of Kindness are the best though, I am having fun with them….always on the lookout for a way to help, you would be amazed at how many opportunities there are from simple things like helping with a heavy shopping bag, picking up something that has been dropped, opening a door, letting someone in front of you In the line to paying the toll for the person in the car behind you, that is my favourite because you see the attendNt tell the person they do not have to pay and their bemused face as they look after your car…usually they wave or flash their lights….nice! The Random Acts of Kindness site is full of ideas which pop up each day…do you fancy joining me???? You could post a comment on the blog when you have completed a RAK…..could inspire others, you never know and it gives such a good feeling!!
Well, have a great week….be nice to others and enjoy!
