Getting uncomfortable

February 21, 2013

This lent I am doing the 40 Acts challenge. On Saturday we were challenged by @miriamswaff to ‘Get Uncomfortable’. I decided I better use the opportunity to do something I’d been avoiding, and go and knock on the doors of some neighbours I’d not met and introduce myself! This is totally not natural to me. I’m really nervous e meeting new people and feel totally useless at small talk. But seeing as I keep telling everyone I want to get to the know the neighbours, and my preferred ‘just bumping into them’ didn’t seem to be happening, I thought I’d take the bull by the horns.
As it happened, there was only a response at one of the 6 doors I knocked on… I’m probably going to have to summon my courage another day too!
But that conversation was really positive! I’m ashamed to say I cannot remember their names (another weakness I really really need to work on!!!) but I had a really good conversation with the couple, who moved here not long before us, and also met their daughter and grandaughter. I found out they love gardening and are really missing their veg patch, so Paul and I are now considering whether we could offer them a patch of our garden! Watch this space….
