It’s not that I’ve done nothing this morning, but was wondering why the quite so severe lack of motivation until I realised that I was listening to Marvin Gaye – doh.
We had a great weekend, flying kites with no wind (again, doh), lovely tortilla wraps, refried beans do really make a difference and some great films – The Third Man, The Woodsman and Kes. OK not particularly happy films – the lodger likes her films to be a bit more entertaining and braindead (I think that’s what she said) and left us to it, but as I think I’ve probably said before, I’m a sucker for a miserable ending and would choose One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest over Shrek every time (for oh so many reasons but I won’t bore you today)
It was not a great weekend for liquids around me however, an entire large teapot full of (thankfully lukewarm) tea got upended over the breakfast table, narrowly missing the lodger. This should have been a good sign that I should opt out of communion serving in the evening service, but no, one of the pew cushions and a section of the floor will never be the same again. Good job we’re beginning major renovations really, whether they’ll let me serve when we get the nice new chairs remains to be seen…
…Well the Marvin Gaye CD has finished, need to find something with a bit more oomph – Any suggestions?
Also any suggestions for the Guardian quick crossword – we seem to have a Gilbert and Sullivan theme, which makes me a bit lost – to quote a certain recording artist – “What’s Going On?”
