This week is kindness week at work and so I’ve been trying to set the example: volunteering to take on the tedious bits of work in a group task, paying compliments, smiling, encouraging the students to do their share and I’m pretty happy with my efforts! I think workplaces without students should probably encourage this too… although ‘giving hugs’ as an act of kindness should probably be avoided in either case!

Tomorrow night the other half and I will be visiting friends for the evening, so I’ve continued the acts of kindness at home and volunteered to be the designated driver.
