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!

It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
