Well this morning I got three bits of post. And none of them were bills/bank statements/helpful letters from endless car insurance companies trying to convince me they can give me the best deal. (Alas my car insurance is due at the end of the month. grrr).
All my post was on the 'pleasant' scale this morning. Which hardly ever happens. So today has to be a good day.
One of these pleasing items of post was a free CD. Well, there's two good things in one. CD and free. Always (nearly) a good combo.
Some months ago in the Guardian they ran a free CD offer. Collect so many tokens kinda deal. I have to admit that I'd completely forgotten about every ordering it. The CD that week was Marvin Gaye's Whats Going On. I've just stuck it in the CD player, and am loving it all over again.
The last time I heard this album was during the uber-cool alt. worship service at Greenbelt back in the summer.(oooh summer. hurry up again. it's cold n grey n miserable). I can just remember it being such a good service. The use of this album, in a worship setting was really well done. It didn't feel forced at all.
Anyway, that was ages ago. I've got essays to write now. Just 800 words to go. Come on!
