Disappointments

My nephew and sister were at my parents’ house last night, so we went round to see them. I think my nephew was expecting lots of fun, and so was surprised by our lack of energy on a Thursday night. I feel as though I might have been a bit of a disappointment and also that children are a full time occupation. My mum has been looking after my nephew this week (and technically so had my dad but I think his input has been minimal and mainly consisting of letting my nephew choose the TV channel occasionally) and I think it has been quite a time consuming business.

Anyway, this weekend I don’t think we have specific plans but we might do a walk and have various things to sort out. I am trying to think of somewhere to buy a decent quality mattress for the spare room that doesn’t involve using John Lewis. They are really in my bad books now given that I wrote to them at the end of July and the only response I have had is from one of their stores (I wrote to the head office and said how unimpressed I was with two of their stores) saying that they would be in touch. I never heard from the head office or the store that I had most problems with. Their customer service is rubbish and I don’t like them any more.

Ahhh, the love affair with Mr Lewis is over :( I wonder if Mr Travel can help you? That's the ticket ;-)

Have a good weekend TFx

TF- well I was going to say that it is indeed over with Mr Lewis, but I just got the nicest letter from someone who works there and it has changed my opinion somewhat.

I am in a dilemma now...

I hope you have a good weekend too.

How about House of Fraser? I'd normally recommend second-hand furniture, but that's probably not a good idea for beds.

CoatMan - I hadn't thought of there. There is a branch near where I work. I might take a look.
