Birthday blues and barkcloth bargain …

Well, I am another year older. I don’t mind because I’m in the even numbers again and 4 and 2 (yes, I was forty two) add up to 6 which is my favourite number, how ridiculous is that?! On Monday it was my birthday, I meant to leave a blog, but it was all a bit quick and I felt a bit blue so it didn’t happen.

It was a lovely day, a trip by Jimmy and me to the Cotswolds, late lunch at home and a quiet evening with the teens. I don’t know why I feel blue about it, even the sun came out and that rarely happens on the 20th June (it’s a family joke that it always rains on my birthday)! My present from Jimmy wasn’t delivered, in fact he’s a bit frustrated about it. I won’t name the company but it’s a satchel and it’s from Cambridge. Despite ordering it 3 weeks ago he’s had no luck in finding out when it will come and they’ve not been very helpful (not replied to his email and a touch unhelpful on the phone). It’s a shame because they sound a really nice company, who seem to have been surprised by their success but really communication and a smile can go a long long way in making a customer feel better. In their defense, they do say they hope to deliver within 30 days but try to get it out sooner, so perhaps we should just be patient but an email explaining the delay or an update of some kind would be really nice.

Oh well, today after work I found this barkcloth curtain in The Heart Foundation (£3.99). It’s on the line drying after a gentle cycle with Ecover for delicates. I’m delighted!

Just have to decide what to do with it now …

Me Made June still going well, update tomorrow.
