A wee additional giveaway

So we know its Mothers day this month, couldn't miss is as its everywhere really. I know how hard this occasion can be either for those who have never been a mother, who have lost their mother or due to other reasons. So I have decided to have a wee giveaway, a small mystery package to one lady who has found her way here.





The package will no doubt have a wee book something related within it, tis required really :P and a few wee bits and bobs. As you know I love Random Acts of Kindness and think this may put a smile on someones face who finds this particular month a bit hard to get through.



All you need to do to be eligible is fill in the rafflecopter below, leave your details as indicated so I can post the parcel out. As it is only a small thing I will open this up to all ladies outside the UK too. I will run this competition for 1 week, that will take us past actual mothers day but it gives me a bit of time to get it prepared. If you have never done a random act of kindness, try and make this your month do try one. Leave a random book somewhere, hold open a door for someone, even a smile at a stranger, all small acts can be massive to the receiver, lets share some love people <3 - Have a great day x.

  10. My nephew has just moved up to Durham from London and couldn't believe how kind everyone was. Lots of people have donated furniture and are helping him in his new home. He says he is overwhelmed by their generosity.

  11. Last year I won a bunch of Alton Towers tickets. At the last minute one family couldn't come with us. So once we were there I gave the spare tickets to a family in the queue who were sorting out coupons trying to work out which the cheapest would be. All their faces lit up when I gave them the tickets, then I could see a little suspicion in their eyes scarcely believing it to be true. I saw them again once we had all gone through the turnstiles. The mother just rushed up to me and gave me the most enormous hug. It was the best feeling in the world. I now often do random acts of kindness. It feels so good. I highly recommend it!

  12. My 9 year old was in the bathroom for about 20 minutes and I heard a lot of water running. I shouted up to ask what she was doing and she had decided to surprise me by cleaning all the bathroom. She did a really good job as well with the sink and bath

  30. I was once lost in prague on holiday and forgot the name of my hotel, I walked all night but was still lost, couldn't find anyone who spoke english and was completely exhausted and scared so I began to weep silently. The a woman noticed my tears and approached me and to my relief she spoke english, she had just finished a work shift as a nurse but despite this she took me into her home and went through the prague phone book with me till i recognised the name of my hotel, she then walked with me for nearly an hour all the way to my hotel. She saved me that day and I will never forget her kindness :)

  44. I haven't ever been the recipient of a random act of kindness, but we once pooled our money together at work for a colleague who was a victim of domestic abuse, she finally got the courage up to leave her abuser and had nothing, we raised enough money to help her buy a cooker for her new flat.

  46. I was in a cafe and the gentleman in front of me was a veteran with all his medals so I paid for his pot of tea and tea cake, he said thank you and I said quite rightly that it was me that should be thanking him, he looked so appreciative, I was choked by his obvious pleasure from such a small little token

  57. When my mother died, I was so busy looking after my distraught dad. They had known each other since the ages of 6 and 8, so you can imagine how traumatic her sudden death was. I did everything and he had lots of cards and letters. One woman friend of his, took me on one side and said "no one thinks of the daughter, who has to cope with everything, but I'm thinking of you". I'll never forget her words.
