Call a Friend

It’s really easy to loose touch with people in the busy lives we modern families live – today’s act of kindness was just to reach out and say ‘hi’ to someone. I also decided to re-start our postcard programme – I found emails a bit too impersonal ,found writing a whole letter impossible and couldn’t figure out a good time to call people on Skype or chat things with bedtimes and mealtimes etc. SO I started a postcard campaign – free postcards from the cinema, or cut up birthday cards worked well and it was personal enough (but not too long) for me to feel good about it. I wrote a list of people I wished I was in contact with more and did sent one a week… worked dream until baby 4 arrived.

I know it works and I feel good when I do it – so I’ve reinstated it to my plans xx
