Lying here trying to go to sleep and thinking about how good it is to live in (well 30k's out of) a small town. The butcher gives my DS a Frankfurt and automatically carries my meat to the car, the lady in the fruit shop carries my pram down the steps, the ladies in the supermarket hold my baby while I get DS out of the trolley and often take groceries to my car.
If we go past the kids toy/clothing/homewares shop and DS wants to go play in their playpen the lady offers to let him and watch him while I do whatever I have to elsewhere. I park by the back door of the post office when I have parcels cause it's easier on both me and the postmistress to only carry them from back door to my car.
My 3 year old goes on the bus home from preschool which saves me a 60klm trip to pick him up. The driver meets him at the gate and helps him with his bag and seatbelt.
The bloke from landmark will cal out to me accross the street or pull me up in the car to let me know that the courier left a parcel there for me.
Our postie brings anything out that will fit in the mailbox. He even posts letters if I leave them in the mailbox for him to pick up. He delivers groceries to other farmers that can't get to town.
Anyway enough rambling, I need to get to sleep as I'm sure ds6months will wake up soon
