I am so sad...
My teapot came today.
Very well packaged as always.

So happy and carefully take it out.
But then when I unwrapping the bubbles I hear a sound. My heart drop. I am so familiar with that kind of sound.

Keep praying and taking the lid off, my hope has gone with the wind. A missing teapot lid.

Take a deep breath before I could continue the journey any farther.
I put my hand inside the lid and there was a missing lid.....
I mean the missing “chip lid”

That’s disappointing & frustrating....I’m sure they’ll remedy the situation, but it really should have arrived with all pieces in tact.

I am sure your SA and SM will make this right. But it is an unneeded aggravation.

My coffee went cold this morning morning, as I was distracted.

There’s a list in the back of this small book (55 Tips to help you say goodby to your things) that‘s helping me thin things out more than any other book/list I’ve tried....and there have been many.

I am unsure of my future with Passifolia. I have bought pieces piecemeal, with no plan: a couple of coffee mugs, a couple of dinner plates, smaller plates & bowls, platters & one large bowl. (I do love the pattern.) I think I’ll keep this small assemblage as it stands, although (in the past) I have always returned to my minimal white china. This was definitely a result of my frustration during our period of strict lockdown. I think I’m now an impulsive procrastinator.....it that even exists.....I guess time will tell.

It’s 93F here. I decided it’s time to try the pour & drink Margaritas I’ve heard about, so we (my clutch and I) drove out to Wine & More. As you can see, the checkout girl lovingly packed my purchases in a slightly abused recycled box. At least there was room for my clutch to ride along....it’s first time riding in the trunk of my car...

:panic: I’m still working since I’m a workaholic. But I had to drop in just to ogle the drinks @tlamdang08 @diane278 @Perja. Maybe I can have a glass of wine while making that late last call to the UK.

@diane278 - I totally get you re: lockdown purchasing. I considered buying a Pico18 on my next H visit because that’s the type of bag I’m carrying these days. But then work announced a possible return to office in July when NYC reopens fully. And my practical side says:no::tdown: to a small bag. Darn I have no reason now.
