Kindness Challenge – Day 11

Nope, I have certainly not given up on my Kindness Challenge.  There has simply not been enough time in the day for me to get online with an update.

So for Day 11, we made another surprise trip on Tuesday.  The boys and I decided to take a visit to London, to surprise my mum and dad.

They absolutely idolise the boys and as far as they were concerned, they wouldn’t be seeing them until after Christmas.

The journey was a challenge in itself, thanks to half of London being affected by roadworks.  The boys cried for the last hour of the journey and we was too late to meet mum at her place of work.

Instead, we made our way to their house, and waited… and waited… and waited.

We called mum to see if she wanted to do FaceTime (so I could find out where she was) and unfortunately, we disturbed her during a Christmas meal with friends.

Dammit!  I really should have done my homework.

Anyhow, mum was home within 10 minutes (with cocktails in hand).  There was no way she would not rush home to the boys.

She made it just before dad got home from work, we was all at the front door waiting for him.

We are staying with them for a few days in the run-up to Christmas, enjoying some festive fun and plenty of cuddles.

So, all was not lost and it’s safe to say the boys made their day.

    Aww that’s the loveliest thing to do! I’ve always been of the opinion that the greatest gift is your presence and it sounds like it was definitely true in this case.
