Simply Shetland 4

Having identified Mr L’s next sweater pattern, I placed an order with Amazon for the necessary book:
Simply Shetland 4: At Tomales Bay. Once that was successfully done, I tootled off to eBay and purchased a cone of yarn – a nice mid-grey lambswool/silk blend.

What happened next was a tad disturbing – Amazon cancelled my book order.  BUT I’VE PAID FOR THE YARN, YOU IDIOTS!

I tried to recoup the situation. EBay sellers had books 2, 3 and 5, but no 4’s available.

So, I Googled.

Places that had copies were wanting £18.99 for it… and that hurt. Eventually, I found somewhere selling at a slight discount and not wanting silly amounts for p&p. I placed my order. I went through to the payment screen. I submitted my card details… and got blobbed back to the original order screen, with no idea of whether my payment had been successful or not.

I emailed the vendor to ask if the order had gone through.

This was yesterday. I have had no reply. I just emailed to ask for a reply to my previous mail…

If anybody has a copy of this book that they no longer want or need, I’d be happy to hear from you in order to do a deal!

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
