Sox Stix

I wrote recently of my dismay when one of my rosewood Sox Stix broke.

I thought it would be worth writing to the manufacturers, Lantern Moon to enquire whether I might purchase a single replacement needle. It took a couple of days  but I did receive a reply on 29th January

“My colleague has forwarded your inquiry to me for follow up. Firstly, I am glad that you purchased Lantern Moon and also very sorry that you’ve experienced a snapped needle. We at Lantern Moon stand behind the quality of our goods and will gladly ensure you receive a replacement needle at no charge.

Could you please provide me with your mailing address? This will enable me to make the appropriate arrangements for this to be mailed to you most likely from a UK source.”

Then on 10th February:

“Hi Beth,

We at Moral Fibre Ltd are the exclusive distributor for Lantern Moon here in the UK.

We have been informed by Annette at Lantern Moon that you have had a bad experience with Sox Stix. Please be advised that all Lantern Moon products do come with a ‘lifetime’ guarantee.

In consequence we will be pleased to send to you a complete replacement set of Rosewood 2mm Sox Stix free of charge. We will be sending these out to you tomorrow, Wednesday. If you experience any further problems, please do let us know and we will be only too pleased to help.”

And today, they arrived!

2mm Rosewood Sox Stix. F.O.C. replacements

A big thumbs up to both companies, I reckon. Well done, Lantern Moon!

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

    I had heard that they did this, it’s very good service.

    Isn’t it nice to hear about good customer service!

      @Heather Cawte, It always is – and I do think it’s important to acknowledge good service properly. People are quick to criticise and slow to compliment, generally speaking.
