Ever get those days when several entirely unrelated things pop up out of the blue in quick succession? Sometimes it's bad things, and life just sucks. Then, sometimes it's little rays of sunshine that make you smile and life is good.
Yesterday evening was one of the latter.
First, I got home to an email from an old friend who I've not heard from for eighteen months.
Then, the wonderful Jenny at Pearson Report dropped me a note to say I've won some fantastic digital artwork for taking part in her A to Z Blogging Challenge tag game. Jenny is one of the co-hosts for this year's challenge. Go and check out her blog, and maybe sign up for the challenge. I'm in, and I'll talk more about it later on in the month.
Finally, I've had a snippet of a tune running through my head for the past week which I've been trying to place. I knocked out a few bars on the piano - my rough approximation from a rather patchy memory - and drove Ali mad also. We've been scratching our heads ever since.
Then, last night, on TV someone started playing the piano. "That's it!" I said. A quick search through the program credits and we had it: Bach's Well Tempered Clavier.
I also realised that my memory was slightly off. All I could recall was the rising sequence of notes, and I'm happy to say I got the notes themselves right, but I thought it was a repeating sequence 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4, when it was actually 1-2-3-4-5-3-4-5.
Well, I was close.
