A Good And A Bad Day

November 15, 2008

The bad part of the day was waking up with a horrific headache which soon turned into a migraine. I’ve spent most of the day battling with painkillers trying to get it sorted out and mercifully it looks like it isn’t going to be a long migraine this time, which I very glad about.

The good part of the day was as follows.

Late this afternoon I went out to buy a few bits at one of the shops in town and came away with a little bit more than I was expecting.. A JOB!!!

I’ve never had that before, I have gone out to buy food and come home with 2 Guinea Pigs!! They were cute and I love Guinea Pigs so bought them on the spot.. But I have ever gone shopping and ended up with a job.

It’s good timing too, what with Christmas coming up and me starting to panic a little after losing my job 6 weeks ago.

It looks like Christmas may be back on in our house now.. woohoo!!

Thief Sends Sorry Note!

November 8, 2008

Whilst perusing the interweb today I came across a heartwarming story. In 2001 a young drug addict noticed a shop he was passing had been broken into and taking advantage of the situation had gone in and stolen 400 cigarettes.

Come forward in time to 2008 and the owner of the shop, a Mr. Imran Ahmed, has received a letter of apology from the thief and £100 to pay for the cigarettes. In the letter the thief explains how in 2001 his life was a mess due to drug abuse but he has now turned it round and is trying to make amends for his wrongdoings in his past.

Mr. Ahmed intends donating the cash to a drugs charity, so hopefully other people with a drug dependency problem will benefit from the thief’s feelings of remorse.

To the thief I have this to say..


I’m glad you turned things round for yourself and I’m so glad you have the guts to admit you have done wrong in the past and you are trying to make things right..
