How rude & credit where it's due.
Apologies for not thanking you all for your good wishes when I was a tiny bit poorly last week.
I find myself strangely addicted to Full House which is currently showing on Netflix. I'm towards the end of season four & only been watching for three weeks.
One of the daughters utters 'How Rude' at times & it is sticking in my mind. I now utter it in work instead of whatever stressful expletive normally pops out!
Also thank you for the kind comments over the loss of Robs friend. It is sad that someone so young has passed away.
Rob as ever has coped admirably as he does through any turmoil. That boy has always seemed 32 years of age. Thankfully both boys have inherited mine & Mikes good traits which is a blessing.
Right onto credit where it is due, well to me of course for bringing up such a splendid boy but remember my ranty post not so long ago about Abakhan. It ended as I suspected it would do & I am still waiting for a response to the second email I sent over unanswered questions.
It's a door I will never darken again. My craft stash money is being spent elsewhere.
Kemps Woolshop for example have a splendid clearance section & some really good prices on other products.
I received an email last week about some new yarn clearances & naturally took a look. I ordered enough for free delivery.
Please note the yarn ordered is planned for two jumpers. Not to feed the stash tubs.
Anyway I received an email saying that out of the eleven balls ordered in one shade they only had ten available. I said the ten were fine & enquired what happened to the free delivery (I was happy to order more). I was told free delivery would still be applied.
A couple of days later I received my parcel.
And they had put in five free patterns as an apology. So kind. Thank you Kemps
The yarn for my jumpers is Freedom Alfresco Aran a delightful squishy mix of merino woll and alpaca which retails at well over £4 a ball - £5 in some places. Mine was 79p a ball.
I also received a refund of 79p in a small plastic bag. This is now residing in my savings jar which is an old salsa pot.
Take care all xx
