Latest News Update – Email Subscription, Catalogues, Christmas Cut Off

Latest News Update


Hi All! Live blogging today!

I’ve got a few news and notes updates for you and rather than trying to slip them into another blog post, I felt they needed their own post!

Spring Catalogues!

I always mail these out FREE of charge to anyone who has shopped with me over the past 6 months. There is no charge at all for it, I cover all the postage, labelling and everything. All you have to do is wait for it to arrive.

I will be posting them between Christmas and New Year so that they arrive with you BEFORE the 5th of January when the catalogue goes live.

I have copies here in English, French and German, and if you are a new shopper with me, or are yet to be a shopper but would like one, please let me know and I will add you to my list!

Christmas Cut Off Date for Deliveries!

The festive season is a busy time of year for sending and receiving packages, so naturally shipping times may slow down. If you are placing any orders that contain gifts for Christmas, please be advised to submit your order by Sunday, 13 December 2015. Orders submitted after 13 December may not arrive before Christmas. (also a reason for me sending Catalogues AFTER Christmas… they’re less likely to get lost, stolen, eaten by bears or something else..!)

Email Subscribers!

I have had a large number of emails over the last few weeks from people who are no longer receiving my daily email from this blog. The subscription button means that you add your email to it, and my blog provider automatically emails you the link to a new post as soon as it is live.

Myself and my web guru have both been investigating this issue and have been in touch with the subscription provider for my blog.

It transpires that the majority of those affected are TalkTalk subscribers. We can see that my email is being sent and received, but somewhere along the line, TalkTalk is not letting it reach your email inbox, or even spam.

This is out of our hands, so you will need to contact TalkTalk and ask them to rectify it. It seems to have got much worse since TalkTalk had their hack a few weeks ago.


I think that’s it for now, although I’m sure that the second I press the publish button, something else will pop into my head….!

Have a great weekend, we’re sitting inside as it is 70mph winds and horizontal rain here…!

    I often have trouble with e-mails to Talktalk and have often found that they are sent to junk mail.
    Worth a look.
