Housemate was having a justified meltdown about something at work, he was rightly obsessed by this as it potentially has a huge knock on affect.

I've been trying to talk him down for over a week now, one call to citizen advice, told him everything he needs to know and all of its variations, alongside the benefit of taking it out with a stranger, Peace restored and at min cost as well!

TH but not trivial, the accessibility, cost and rapid response of the CIC.

A woman approached me this morning in a right state.
She was distraught and crying.
Took about 3-4 minutes for me to resolve the issue which she said she had been all over the place all morning trying to sort.

It was good to see the panic disappear from her before we went our separate ways.

I was supposed to be off tomorrow but the owner of the place I work in got the rosters all messed up (she skipped the 31st and had us all off on Friday on the "1st of August") and so far nobody has accepted the call to come in to work tomorrow.

My own boss rang me this afternoon and asked if I could come in tomorrow, and I'm the only one that said yes. She called me an "absolute gentleman" over the phone.

Now I can't fit my head through the door ^_^

My neighbour brought her 3 year old girl for a visit today. Little lady wanted to see "the wegtibble garden". The way she said it was so cute. She went home with a bag of tomatoes, to tell Daddy all about it.

not very trivial, but getting up myself in the mornings without being called, as someone who isn't a morning person and who struggles to sleep, this is a big achievement for me

I'm not a morning person either so I totally get that.

Well, ain’t that a coincidence because I just watched her myself and thought how completely engaging she is. She’s clearly very knowledgeable, but also has a nice self deprecating aspect - “I like to dress up”, she said as she appeared in a Gone With The Wind outfit.

Made me smile.
