Ok, you people, I've decided. I'm going to take the plunge. After my abortive attempt to buy a mixer last year, I felt in my heart of hearts it's because I was destined for an even fancier one. Look at the shiny, the mixy, the sparkle!
Yes, I need fillings, and glasses, and home improvements, and a weekend in Paris. BUT. I know I will get enough use out of this to make it worth it in the end. And the joy it will bring me...
Sadly for Irish trade, I can get it from an English site, including postage and a free utensil set worth 60 pounds, for 50 less than I can buy it for here. Depressing, eh? For US readers, don't even ask how much they cost over here.
So here is both a request and an offer: it is my birthday next Saturday. If anyone feels moved to donate concrete birthday wishes to the Charity of Jo, send me a birthday card with a fiver in it. It will go towards the mixer fund. And, here's the sweet part, if you do, I promise to, over the course of the summer months, send you something mixed out of it. Cookies or the like.
ONLY if the idea appeals, though, this is a strictly just in case effort I'm trying here. No pressure!
Birthday cards empty of money would also be extremely welcome! I can't help but feel a little unloved on my birthday, much as I try not to. So if you need my address, mail me at infantasiablogATgmailDOTcom or my own address, if you have it.
Anyone know about paypal buttons?
