Shopping in the Sales

Please don't be confused and imagine for one minute that I have braved the High Street, or the out of town Shopping Mall (Meadowhall? Ugh!)...No, No, No, I have been busily spending my Christmas Bonus on things for the neddies (well, Phoebe anyway) and being a modern woman I have been doing this on-line. So far since Christmas I have ordered and have had delivered some new dressage stirrup leathers (single thickness for extra leg contact...don't ask!)and some trimmers from "Ride-away", two books about equitation from Amazon, a three-part DVD and book about the perfect "seat" and some rubber matting for Phoebe's stable floor (that's being delivered on a pallet on Monday).

I love shopping on line - because you get two "highs" instead of the normal one when you get things from a shop. You get the first "hit" when you place your order, and then you get the second "hit" a couple of days later when it is delivered. There's also something wierdly anonymous about it too. The company gets an order, not knowing anything about the person who has placed it, and then they send out the stuff, not knowing who it is going to! That appeals to me for some reason which I do not understand!!!

  1. I think they do know who it's going to as they have your name and address.

    Have you actually had anything delivered? :-)
