... on what they are wearing if I like it.
See my full list here, and the inspiration behind the 101 things in 1001 days challenge here.
So she wasn't exactly a stranger, but I had just met her. I have started attending a different playgroup, and a Mum I hadn't met before was there and she was wearing a really pretty top. I thought "I really should say something" and if it weren't for my 101 in 1001 days, it probably would have stayed as just a thought. So I looked for an opportunity to tell her. Then I got nervous. I told myself "I can do it another day with someone else" but realised I was making dumb excuses. So I just jumped in.
"I really like your top. It's a lovely colour!"
She looked a bit taken aback but seemed to really appreciate the compliment. She told me where she had bought it (MYER) and she wasn't sure if it suited her (which I assured her it did) and we talked for a couple more minutes about nothing much. It felt good!
