Small Acts…

This has been a very busy week for me; at Aston University, (where I am a lecturer, my day job), exams are in full swing. I’ve just had to mark 453 answers to three questions I rather foolishly set. I’m also trying to analyse data from a research project I’m doing with a colleague from Cambridge. Throw into that a busy week’s vicaring and by Friday evening I could barely see my computer, never mind read what was on it. Then I got an email, from a friend at work, marked “Just for you”. You’ll have to read to the end of this blog to see why I fell about laughing, but it was perfect; just what I needed. Never underestimate the power of a random act of kindness; you will probably not know just how much that joke meant to someone….
