This is all about my journey to achieve one Good Deed a day for a year. I was inspired to set myself this challenge when I began reading “A Year of Doing Good” by Judith O’Reilly. Judith undertook some amazing deeds in her year, my own challenge has opened my eyes to opportunities which would previously have passed me by, where I can make a difference to the world, not matter how small.
November 17th – It’s my brother-in-law’s birthday tomorrow, so we are celebrating early and inviting him and my Mother-in-law over for a birthday tea. Have invited them to spend Christmas lunch with us. Good deeds received; Much appreciation for the tea from my husband and the in-laws.
November 18th – My morning helping at school for my Good deed, I also took a bag of books for a book sale the children will be holding in aid of the Philippines disaster.

November 23rd – Off to visit my Mum this morning who finally has her computer up and running again after several set backs. She’s not feeling well and my Dad is away for a few days, so I’m going to spend some time with her. Mum was feeling better today and was out visiting a neighbour when I got there, so I set about doing some housework for her. Baked a banana cake this afternoon, the taste could have been better, I think I need Harula’s recipe. Good deeds received: Had lots of thanks from a friend I’d e-mail earlier in the week.
