Dear self, You need to learn the difference between a small bottle of moisturising shower cream, and a small bottle of moisturising body cream, or at least wear your glasses when you are picking up what you think is the latter but was actually the former. Moisturising shower cream doesn’t soak into the skin quite as well as body lotion and leaves a sort of sticky residue.
Dear little cricket, The mystery was solved, finally, when we tracked you down and discovered you resting on the back of one of the pictures on the wall. We could hear little chirping sounds every now and then which seemed to be moving round the room – we began to think we were going mad! I hope you will be much happier now that we have put you outside.
Dear car dealership, I’d just like to say thank you for your wonderful service yesterday. My car was in for a recall but not only did you replace the part that might have caused a problem, but I had an oil change and routine maintenance package performed free of charge, and you washed the car. Another bonus was the shuttle car that took me back home while the car was being worked on and then collected me again when the car was ready a few hours later, and it wasn’t just any old shuttle car, but one with a selection of sweets and chocolates for the passengers to enjoy.
Dear local radio station, I put you on on Monday afternoon to discover that you have transformed yourself into a Christmas radio station and are playing nothing but festive songs. I have to say that I immediately turned you off because … it’s only the middle of November! However, on Tuesday I relented and, rather than try to tune into a different station, decided to go with the flow. It pains me to admit this, but I am actually enjoying the selection of music.
Dear Kellogg’s, I am unsure whether this cereal, which I spotted this week in the supermarket, is for human consumption or is aimed at the sparkly, rainbow-maned unicorns themselves. My unicorns are, of course, the normal non-sparkly white ones with golden manes so they will continue to eat grass and hay as normal…
Have a good Friday.
