    People can restore your faith...

    Not a school related thing but damn if it didn't make me feel a bit bad for being down on my fellow human from time to time.

    Had an order that I've been waiting for from Holland. It was set to be delivered to the school I'm in most of the week and was all good to go with the supplier.. So, here's me waiting while Thursday/Friday which was when it was due... Today it still hadn't turned up so I was starting to think "uhoh" when I get this call on my mobile from a nice lady saying she'd accepted my parcel thinking it was her new neighbours but since discovered it was mine.

    Apparently she'd spent a few hours on the net, tracking me down via my name and the company name which hinted at a web address. I was stunned but very very humbled so I now have my package and I think a little trip to the supermarket is in order tonight to get them a thankyou bottle of wine.

    I think that calls for use of the emoticon!

    Thankfully there are some decent people around - apart from us edugeekers

    A very nice lady who definitely deserves a bottle of wine or a bunch of flowers.

    I have to be a bit careful or the fiancée will think I'm having an affair I agree though, definitely worthy of reward...
