This week I visited a local radio station, Tay FM, with my mum and dad thinking we had been invited to play their morning show game – aka ‘the one letter game’.
When we arrived we were greated warmly by the two hosts and given a tour of the studios…I have to admit I was a little star struck…it is my favourite radio show and was so amazing to not only see the studio but have the opportunity to record a wee bit too!
Anyway…as it happened we weren’t invited to play the game after all. They’d invited us in under ‘false pretences‘.
What they had actually planned was for me to talk about this blog, and for my dad to talk about me and my approach to my diagnosis. If that wasn’t exciting enough…you know I love an excuse to raise awareness…they then surprised me with a whole host of wonderful gifts donated by local businesses in response to my first random act of kindness!!! How incredible is that! Needless to say everyone had tears in their eyes, except for me who was in shock for a good few days!
The lovely gifts included…
A facial, use of the spa facilities and afternoon tea for two at The Apex Hotel in Dundee.
Dinner for 8 at The Tonic Bar in Dundee – the place I gave out my first RAK envelope!
A bouquet of gorgeous pink flowers from Loramana Flowers.
A new outfit, handbag AND pair of shoes from Mandi Candi Boutique!
AND…a pair of tickets to see ‘The Cheviot, The Stag and The Black, Black Oil’ at Dundee Rep Theatre…and to meet the cast and have a tour!
If you would like to watch me on the radio show you can do so here.
Wow! I’m still in shock three days later! I can’t believe that my first random act of kindness has achieved so much not just for me today (which was not unintended…that’s why I gave away the money I was gifted) but for many others too.
What a wonderful world 💕🦄
Love and light, Fi xxx
