Simple acts of kindness make my day

A sympathetic soul (who apparently passes through our blogspot from time to time) has kindly directed Duma to a liquor store here in Muscat thats stocks our beloved MadFish wines from Margaret River WA - say it aint so?!?!?! In reading this post, they came to our rescue and I'm eternally grateful PG...

And from the same post, a new 'friend' (yes, thats what we call each other Gatvol - when we meet for coffee, pour out our hearts and talk about waxing and other inappropriate female things - we are friends ha!) graced me with a packet of Tim Tams via Dubai. And an angry 'friend' trekked all over Toronto for them as a wonderful surprise, only to see them sitting in her small town grocery store - bless! (Oops, I just outed myself as Duma was not involved in the destruction of said delectable, erotic bikkies - yes, they are ALL that *black girl finger snap*

If you don't believe me, check this out (Tim Tam straws or Tim Tam Slam) - all the cool kids are doing it!.

Ahhh its simple acts of kindness from strangers and friends in disguise that make my day x Gracias muchachos!


  1. And I picked up my fav bottle of Madfish Shiraz 2004 tonight from OUQ MQ = bliss!

    Gatvol, they have Jagermeister too :)

  2. YAY ME :) Now to get hubby back with his licence... :) Thanks for the info...

    Came across this quote by Samuel Johnson
    "always set high value on spontaneous kindness. He whose inclination prompts him to cultivate your friendship of his own accord will love you more than one whom you have been at pains to attach to you".

    So thanks for your spontaneous kindness - we WILL have a Jager Bomb night.... :) followed closely with a timtam hangover cure... :)

  3. no way they have madfish in Oman??? Props to them.. The best thing is they have Milo (or used to), can't get that in Germany or Eurooe.. and yet u cant get it in the middle east - it's amazing how the gulf has more stuff than europe sometimes!!
