    Default A lovely thing happened to me today (kindess isnt dead after all!)

    I was doing the weekly food shop at Aldi. DP was looking after DS1 and DS2 at home so I was going to brave the shops with little miss (7 weeks). She woke from a good nap, fed well and was happy so I thought 'I have about 45mins to do this before she goes off'.

    So go to the shops, hardly anyone in sight, did my shop, got everything scanned and back in the trolley....and then she starts to cry! Oh boy and it was a 'I am so tired I need to eat NOW and sleep NOW' cry....and she had done a poo

    Well....I am holding her, jiggling away, trying to take the stuff out of the trolley to put into the bags and back into the trolley (I hate Aldi sometimes!) and trying to hold it together so I dont bug the other people in the shops so I can just get home and feed her.

    Then a lovely old couple (in their late 70s?) finished their shop and asked if I needed help. The old dear was saying how hard it is and its difficult to get things done when you need to so they unpacked my trolley and put everything into the bags. Then they walked me out to my car helped my put all my stuff into my car and then took the trolley back to the shop for me. All the while I was protesting but thanking them. I told the lady to keep the $1 and dont worry about giving it back after she took the trolley and she shushed me and gave me a dollar out of her wallet.

    I was just blown away. Normally people just move on their way and do their own thing and maybe just take notice of the mum struggling with shopping and kids (I am guilty of that at times!) but these two people just took a moment out of their day to make mine a little easier.

    It was so damn nice I almost cried!!

    So nothing in particular....just wanted to share something nice that happened to me. Brightened up the day

    Aww that's so sweet and very rarely do people take time out of their own day to make someone elses's just that little bit easier, bless them for doing that and helping you out

    a similar thing happened with my sister and her 3 kids when they were shopping a couple of weeks ago. 2 older gentleman in their 60s pushed the trolley back to the car for her and loaded the groceries while she put the kids in the car. Was much appreciated i can tell you!!!
