Day 23 – give and take with neighbours

A cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit on a Christmas table cloth in front of the box of biscuits from Sarah's neighbours

My next door neighbours have just had new windows fitted. Since we live in 3-storey houses, they had to have scaffolding put on the back of the house so that the window fitters could reach the top floor!

So what’s that got to do with kindness?

Well, the scaffolding has blocked the signal to our Sky dish, so we haven’t been able to watch our TV properly for over a week. This, of course, is first world problems and so not something we needed (or wanted) to make a fuss about. Especially since we still have Netflix and BBC iplayer ๐Ÿ™‚

But our lovely neighbours felt bad for disrupting our viewing. So they bought us a box of chocolate biscuits to say sorry and thank you. A really kind gesture.

And obviously, I told them that they “really didn’t need to do that” while scoffing the yummy biscuits ๐Ÿ˜‰
