I've no card to show tonight..no surprises there then! I just wanted to share a couple of things.
Like many other bloggers, I registered for MFC to protect the content of my blog. Yesterday I realised I hadn't received the usual emails off them, so I clicked on my own badge only to read that "This content has been removed" and if I feel that it is a mistake I should email them, which I duly did yesterday. I've heard nothing back so when I got home from work tonight I had a little trip through blogland and I've clicked on a few of the banners on other peoples blogs and they all say the same thing, I therefore presume it is an error at MFC's end of things. You may want to check on your own blog to see what your status is?
Next... Good Manners Cost Nothing!
I like to believe that I was 'brought up' well, and not 'dragged up'. My parents instilled in me and my brothers the value of saying please and thank you, and in turn I have always made sure that Hal says his thank yous. Regardless of how big or small a gift may be, the sender should always be thanked..they have taken the time to go out and buy a gift and send it!
So imagine my horror to receive an email...not a rude email, but certainly the sender was not happy! The content was to the effect that I had been ungrateful and impolite to not say thank you for my birthday card. I can assure you, I always say thank you! I know how much time and effort goes into creating these little works of art and I always appreciate a handmade card.
I always email (or leave a comment if I don't have the email address) as soon as I get home from work.
The reason I didn't send an email is simply that I didn't receive the card. I can hardly email someone to ask "did you send me a card because I haven't received one"!
I have apologised - I would never intentionally upset someone, I would like to think I'm a relatively nice person most of the time..though hubby says I only open my mouth to change me feet!
OK, I'm off to rustle up a storm in the kitchen, I'll be back later in the week with a card.
