If you sow kindness that’s what you reap in return and fishing a pool that’s still mostly covered in ice

The full story is in the accompanying video but I got talking to a roofer who was working on a neighbour’s home.

His drill had died and he asked me if I had one to lend him.

I did and that meant he was able to finish the job the same day.

As a thank-you he offered to clean all my guttering out.

I have done some myself recently and the rest is actually on the agenda, so I told him I was fine but that I did appreciate the offer.
