  1. What a wonderful list. So many brilliant ideas for small acts of kindness. #MMBC

  2. What lovely ideas. It would be a good challenge to try and do all of these things. x

  3. These are great recommendations and remind me that we can always do SOMETHING!

  4. What a lovely post. I think there are a lot of people who could do with practising some of these. x

  5. This is great. I'm going to set some of these up as this lockdown drags on....#MischiefandMemories

  6. Number 4- I love to offer to take pictures of families together, so often it's mum or dad in the picture whilst the other takes the photo or it's a squinty selfie squished in together. It's lovely when you get the chance to have a proper family photo.

  7. So many wonderful acts of kindness! I often offer and get asked to take photos of others; probably because I am usually walking around with my big camera and they see that I enjoy taking photos. I have tried repeatedly through the years to donate blood but I have never been able to.

  8. Some lovely kind things to be doing.
