as some of you know, we have hit on hard times and 2013 is proving to be a trying year financially...

so being as frugal as poss, our 'big outing' was a trip to the local supermarket for some taco chips (nachos for dinner ).. so whilst down there we thought we would look at the shops and see whats what....

we discovered a new fish and chip shop ( well new to us )..checked out the menu and pricing ( all good ).. then out of the blue the owner asked if we would like a sample..ok thought I.. a bit of fish and half a dozen chips..HELL NO..the 'sample' was enough for our dinner! .. and I must say it was the freshest fish and best chips I have tried..

they now have a new customer! and has absolutely restored my faith in human kindness .. fyi, he knew nothing of our circumstance, so it wasn't charity...just brilliant to see a business owners not all about the $$$$

Aw Steph - that's such a lovely story. There are a few (probably more than a few) of us in similar situations at the moment and we, too, have been on the receiving end of people's kindness lately. I like to think that I can pay it forward in some way but it really lifts the spirits when a nice little surprise drops in on you unexpectedly. Blessings to you both. :)
Cheers, Mich.
