No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
As I was speaking with my aunty the other day, we were saying that if you catch the plane a lot, you’ll have plenty of dodgy plane adventures. I haven’t caught the plane in a few months – but I will have to soon – so luckily I haven’t got any scary plane adventures to share today. And I hope I won’t have any ever actually. However recently I have had to go on the underground quite a bit, and I do have a cute underground adventure to share.
I’m hanging onto a pole with one hand, the other hand holding my suitcase and handbag on the Barcelona underground. Next to me there is a lovely looking elderly lady speaking into her mobile phone.
Then, with all the naturalness in the world, with her one free hand, she just starts taking off the fluff from my coat. (Yikes, that means by coat was a tad unpresentable with bits sticking to it, from my woolly scarf). After she removed five bits of fluff, I said thank you. And she made a sign as if saying no problem! And continued to tidy my coat for another 30 seconds. I thought it was so sweet.
Anyway, soon after that we both had to get off, waved a goodbye and parted our ways.
When was the last time a stranger did something surprising and sweet for you?
Chocolate, Hazelnut and Blackberry Overnight Oats
I haven’t become a complete overnight oats addict. It’s not because I don’t think they taste good, on the contrary, I think they’re fantastic! I just, ahem, forget to make them the night before. This one is really recomendable. If you’re like me and sort of get up in too much of a rush or without any appetite in the mornings, the thought of these overnight oats waiting for you will make you want to have breakfast.
Ingredients (per serving):
1 handful blackberries, 1/2 handful hazelnuts, 1/2 handful chopped cooking chocolate, 1/2 cup oats, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 2/3 cup almond milk, 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
Chop the cooking chocolate into more or less square chunks. Put the oats into a glass or jar. Add the chia seeds, blackberries, hazelnuts, chocolate and sugar. Pour the almond milk. Keep in the fridge overnight.
