My Grand-niece's first Birthday cake below, loveingly made by her Mum. The day started like any other Saturday. Knew we had an hour and a half to drive to the party so left about 10.30. Traffic was slow in the city and the car started to make clicking noises from the front wheel. No where to pull over till we turned a corner and pulled up in a bus stop with a flat tyre. An hour or so later we were on our way again. It is so nice to experience the kindness of other people. After finding that the jack wasn't quite what we were used to we rang road assist. A lady pulled up with two kids and probably her Mum in the car and offered to change the tyre. We declined her kind offer as we had already called for assistance. A few minutes later she returned with two bottle of cold water as it was a warm day and we were using a lamp post for shade while waiting. Then to top it off a nice man on a Honda motor bike pulled up and also offered to change it. He obviously had no problem find where and how the jack worked so we accepted his kind offer. Road assist arrived as he was changing the tyre. God bless them both.

The picnic party was delightful. We also caught up with other family and friends. Left about 3.30 and had a good run home to feed our dog and cat. Feeling a little weary and time for dinner. M

It is refreshing to have your faith in human kind restored with acts of kindness like those of today :-) The cake looks good too.

Omigosh, that cake and those cookies look wonderful. Is there any left? *heh*

Why is it that things like that happen -- just when you least need them to happen!? Thank goodness for good Samaritans.
