A quick wave and a 'No Thank you!'

I know I've not posted much lately....seem to have got out of the habit a bit, plus we've been out and about quite a lot recently.  No new to us furniture acquired, nothing crocheted to show.....well, I have a few WIPs but haven't finished anything, it's been too hot and sticky to crochet.  Still on the lookout for a second hand wardrobe for the twin spare room - the trouble is, I'm quite fussy, I have in mind what type of wardrobe I want and haven't yet found one that totally fits the bill.  I'm sure one will turn up eventually.

Recently, I've had a few emails from people with a business or website that they'd like me to promote on my blog.....although they don't come out and say that directly, they write a few flattering words about my blog first.  Well, I'd just like to say to anyone who might have that idea in mind.....Thank you for showing an interest, but no thank you.  This blog is purely my diary, I don't write it for anybody's benefit but my own, I am not going to get into promotions or reviews for anyone else - well, unless it happens to be a review of a product or service that I myself have purchased and not something that I've been asked to review.  Others may well do that, and that's fine, that's their choice, but I'm not going to.  I guess I should put a note on my sidebar saying that.

Thank you for the comments on my last post Food Talk, and welcome to my new follower Simple Living, I'm glad I found your blog.

  2. I always say things come to those who wait, and I'm sure the wardrobe want will come along sometime.

    1. My philosophy too Julie, I'm sure it will sooner or later, we're not in any hurry for it.

  4. Love your refusal to commercialise your blog, I so dislike the blogs which have ads they look cluttered and I can't stand to try and sort all the unnecessary stuff.

    1. Marlene, I have actually bought my blog space so to speak so that I won't be plagued by pop-up adverts on it.

    1. Yes we do have a couple of charity furniture outlets nearby, we regularly check in them. I'm not intending to paint or otherwise decorate the wardrobe. Margaret, you really do need to start writing your own blog!
