A partner or close friend's shock announcement could leave you reeling. This might actually be in the nicest of ways. At a different level, you could find a bargain or make a domestic alteration that proves labour and time-saving. A surprise event planned for late in the day might require you to tell a small white lie to throw someone off-scent.

In this, you might appreciate help from someone working for a large business or who has high ranking in a community partnership.
