Cowart's Common Room
Something really nice has happened...

...and I just wanted to share it. It was our school Christmas do last night, and the star prize at the raffle was a spa day for two at a gorgeous local spa. The winner was announced (needless to say it wasn't me - it never is unless there's a booby prize going - last year won a lifesize stuffed model of Taz the cartoon Tasmanian devil Shocked that I somehow had to shoehorn into the car and with which my son refuses to part Evil or Very Mad)

Anyway, following my initial fleeting disappointment that the prize was not mine, I realised it was the mother of a friend of my son's - someone who could not have deserved it more, as she's going through a horrible time at home at the moment and was rushed off to casualty last week after accidentally spilling boiling water down her leg. I don't know her all that well, but I've picked her child up from school on a couple of occasions and helped her out in honestly very minor ways. Anyway, she just rang me to ask whether I would like to join her on the spa day. Razz Razz Cannot really believe it! Surprised

ChrisH's Avatar Good! What a change to hear some nice news for once! (Love the idea of trying to squeeze Taz in the car. Don't try to take him to the spa, will you!)

Exmoorjane's Avatar Fab story - couldn't have happened to a nicer gal..... Taz sounds grim. I once won back the horrible garden gnome I'd put in for the raffle!
Yay, maybe this is the beginning of the Good Things vibe? Hope so.....jx
