Happy almost Valentine’s Day for those who mark it. As this post is going up on the 13th I have to say ‘almost’. I sent my son a box with chocolates and sleep socks, but Valentine’s has never meant a lot to me, even when I was in relationships/married. More of a birthday, anniversary sort of girl.
So, what about Dear … Please …?
I really love my small Diptyque Biscuit candle which is now almost finished and completely out of stock. So basically unfindable on reputable sites. I looked at the company site in the hope I could find a Contact link so I could write and say ‘Dear Diptyque, Please, please offer this at Xmas time again’. But I can’t find said link. I might call the Customer Service number at some point.
But all this made me think of situations where you’d write an email to a company saying Dear X, Please offer Y product again. I adore it and I was silly and only bought one. You get my drift.
So, here I go.
Dear Diptyque, Please offer the small Biscuit candle again this year at Xmas time.
Dear Boden, Please offer the wide leg cord trousers I love in black and forest green (and don’t bother with pink and white again – I mean, what’s the point?).
Dear Anne Cleaves, Please write another entry in the Shetland series so we know what happens with Jimmy and Willow.
Dear Soulard (long gone French restaurant in Dalston, East London), Please return as a popup for a few weeks when I’m next in London.
Dear Marks & Spencer, Please offer the chenille sweater I adore again and in more colours.
Dear Sara’s bakery, Please offer the chicken filled turnovers all the time as well as the apple turnovers. Oh, and the pumpkin cupcakes you had at Halloween.
Dear Gardeners’ World, Please tell me you’ve really not been cancelled. I just can’t bear the idea.
Dear Ruffwear, Please offer the wide soft double-ended dog lead I bought from you years ago again.
Dear Farm Shop, Please offer the chicken sausage you had once on a regular basis.
Finally, Dear Orient Express, Please somehow offer a very very deep discount on a London-Venice round trip journey.
How about you? Any Dear … Please … ?
