Until this last few weeks i hadnt heard the term until a friend mentioned it on facebook in passing!
What does it stand for? (Apologies to those who are up with the text abbreviations, im way behind!) - Random Act Of Kindness.
Simple as that!
But while the term may be simple...the actual act itself is incredible, so kind and thoughtful and makes you think "ive got a friend who thought of me to do an RAOK...how lucky do i feel?"
This friend, i met by total fluke while crossing paths on a nail polish for sale thread on Hot Deals UK. We kept chatting and here we still are! We've swapped polishes, traded, doing joint buys to save pennies on delivery. Shes got a heart of gold and is just a lovely person and i DO feel so very lucky that she thought i could use this to cheer me up (she wasnt wrong, ive had a bad few weeks!). And it wasnt just me, she did a good few others too who were just as overwhelmed as i was!
so what did she get me? I thought it would be a couple of polishes, so when a big box from the Body Shop came with the postman i was a bit baffled! Opened it up for this to greet me:
Each one is:
This gorgeous honey scented set has 2 of the bottles of shower gel and a Bath Lily ( i always called them a pouffee thing - but that little netted ball!)
Next up - and for a chocoholic (like myself) this smells like heaven!!
And then Kay hits the nail and hand aisle (well online!):
The last (but by no way certainly least!) is the Ginger Mini Manicure Set:
Kay, theres nothing i can say to convey how much this meant to me, you knew i was having a rough time with my health, and life and this was just a cheer me up i needed!
