Post subject: Random acts of kindness from strangers
Hi. Has anyone experienced complete strangers being really nice whilst pregnant? I was in WHSmith buying books for hospital yesterday and the lady at the till took one look at my bump (I am 38 weeks) and said "You can have 20% off with my staff discount love, it's my present to you" - I didn't even know her but was so touched I nearly cried! Then she told me to go home and put my feet up! Loads of people have been nice lately, coming up and giving me useful advice, holding open doors, letting me jump the queue for the loo (and I got a discount in Next too!) etc. It restored my faith in humanity and made me think this might not be the worst world to bring a baby into! I thought it would be nice to hear other people's stories about unexpected niceness. Very Happy

When I was pregnant an old lady tried to give me her seat on the but I wouldn't let her there were all these young people all deliberatly avoiding my glares!
Some people are lovely when you're pregnant though

Post subject: Lovely little girl
I live in Sussex and it IS a nice place to live! I thought it would be mostly older people who'd be considerate but at the swimming pool the other day I was chatting to this lady and her little girl (about 7 or 8 yrs old) came up to me with a glass of water she'd been and got for me with no prompting from anyone - what a sweetie!

Right, that's it. OH and I were hoping to move to Devon, but I think I'll try to persuade him to go to Sussex now! lol

Devon is great too though! I used to live in Kingsbridge (South Devon) and Bump's Godparents live there (not in Kingsbridge, nearby) so we go there often. It is lovely and people are VERY friendly there too! Plus better beaches than Sussex, though I love Brighton for shopping and going out and would be really torn if I had to make a choice! Whereabouts in Devon were you hoping to move to?

Near the sea, probably Sidmouth as it would be a safe first move because we already know it so well. I'm desperate to get away from where I am (Hemel Hempstead). We accidently set up camp here due to work, but now I'm having to think of schools etc... I really want to be somewhere I want to stay and raise our kids. Once you're in the schooling system it's difficult to take the kids out. Cross fingers we'll be making the big move in about 2 years. xxx
