A good for giving today without spending any money and using my skills/giving time. I checked and showed mum how to top up the water and anti freeze in her engine.I dug over a part of her garden and added 6 big bags of soil to a 'bare' corner, so that's it ready for planting. This part of the garden has been bare after some building work was completed in her garden and she can see it from her chair in the lounge - I think if has been driving her mad, as it looked so ugly. She has been suffered from a bad back, so I'm glad I could help and it was lovely working in the fresh air and good exercise for me too!
I also grouted a mosaic project for charity, that I will be flying with to the States in a couple of weeks' time..so a good day for giving!
Mum cooked me a roast dinner in return, with lashings of tea during the day..I think I will sleep well tonight!
I also sold an item on ebay, which will help to raise the money I need for my ticket to the States..bit by bit as they say!
