After collecting the mail earlier this week – yet another two bills – I just happened to randomly tweet,
“Tired of receiving bills. Can someone send me something nice in the mail? #notasextoy #postcardwoulddo”.
Covered myself on the sex toy thing just in case, due to various Twitter followers. Not that a sex toy wouldn’t be better than receiving another bill. But moving on.
There was no suggestion of me blogging about them or their coffee. That wasn’t their intention. I didn’t have to mention this on my blog at all.
It was purely a random act of kindness. And spreading a bit of coffee love around!
Now being a Melburnian, and Mum to two young boys, how could I not love my coffee? So naturally I was very excited and curious to see what might be sent my way…
And today in the post, this arrived!
A freshly ground pack of Gridlock House Blend, accompanied by a little note:
“Hi Alison, throw your bills in the bin – they’ll send them again. Sit down and have a cup of Gridlock coffee instead! From the team @ 65 Degrees & Gridlock Coffee”
I’ve just enjoyed a plunger full and it is divine. I drink my coffee black with no sugar, so I really notice taste variations. Guys, you’ve made my day!
I thought it only right to pass the random act of kindness on. I needed a good excuse to bake Iron Chef’s Shellie’s Nutty Apple Loaf – so I’m going to make it for a friend whose Dad’s having heart surgery next week. One chocolately apple nut loaf coming your way soon, Ness. x
