one photo & twenty words


She saw I had no walking boots so posted me a spare pair. Such Kindness. Thank you dear Lizzie.

My challenge for you today. Find one photo and choose up to twenty words to tell its story. Jot it down and link back here. The link will stay open for a week so you have plenty of time to join in! 


I am breaking my own rule here and posting the slightly longer story. Lizzie noticed the photos I posted a few weeks back about the long walk the boy and I went on. She was concerned I was wearing wellies rather than boots and offered to send me a spare pair they had in their cupboard at home. They arrived beautifully packaged, in wonderful condition and perfect size. Me and my family were blown away by your kindness Lizzie. Blog friends are the best.  P.S Can you email me your address please?!

Thoughtfulness and kindness and care in great measure - what a gift Lizzie has given as well as the boots themselves :). And your photo and acknowledgement a lovely tribute. May you have many happy hours in them!

P.S. I loved hearing you on PRT - it was so inspiring to hear you share your uni memories and has made me want to scrap some more of mine.
