That is lovely- I'm sat at my desk with tears welling up! Must be a bit soft this time of year!

I love the whole pay it forwards concept- I try to whenever I can. We can all do a little bit more to make the world a better place! Merry Christmas everyone>> as she starts blubbing<< oh for gods sake give me a slap!

It's not paying back is it.

It's paying forward.

Thats nowt, I just won 200,000 aed from Etisalat, being a good christian I told them to donate it to a charity of their choice.

00971504269450 was the number if anyone else wants to donate.
