Yesterday afternoon I did a volunteering shift at the Wildlife Trust gift shop. It was a very busy afternoon and I found it quite tiring, however, I did receive an unexpected compliment from a customer which made my day.
I was chatting to a couple about the use of plastic and she told me she is in her fifties and remembers shopping with her mother as a child when fruit and veg were sold loose and put into paper bags for taking home. I was agreeing with her when she asked if perhaps I would be too young to remember that. I pointed out that I was probably about 10 years older then her and she professed not to believe me, saying that she thought that I was younger than her! I did suggest that perhaps she needed to visit Specsavers but I thanked her for the compliment and we had a chuckle about it.
Another blogger wrote recently that we should always try to be nice to others and I think it is true that receiving a compliment or a kindness from someone does brighten your day.
It may be a coincidence but I was trying out a new makeup from Avon yesterday. Perhaps I should go and order a truckload now, just in case.
