It’s that time of year… red or black?
So FUCKING fed up with @IKEAspain, who have been dicking me around for a week over this one order. A cupboard for my hallway, which was finally delivered 3 days late, but they still haven’t sent anyone to assemble it. Three times now I’ve waited at home (4 hour windows) and nobody showed up, or even called to say nobody would be showing up. This is the shittiest customer “service” l have ever experienced.
No problem when l spent 1200€ at IKEA two weeks previously, but apparently this 250€ order (and my time) doesn’t matter to them. How about l invoice them for my 12 lost hours? Not to mention l wouldn’t still have fucking boxes in my hallway if this had all been done as promised. And I’m supposed to be on holiday this week, not dealing with this shit. At this point it’s feeling like abuse.
You know how it goes… you have that one extra glass of wine at lunch and then on your way home you see something in a shop window that catches your eye. Luckily it wasn’t shoes (that never works out well – tipsy feet are much less fussy than sober ones) but these super cute, and totally unnecessary plates. Actually it’s a fish dinner plate, a fish soup bowl, and two smaller plain blue plates in between. They make me smile. What’s the best/worst thing you’ve ever bought while under the influence?
There’s a new wine shop in town, very dangerously located about a three-minute walk from my house. Welcome Lama La Uva and its founder Ana Linares, whose idea is to help us reach all the good grapes (unlike the fox from the fable), so no sour grapes for us.
I was invited to the opening this week and went along with @SVQconcierge and @JetslikeTaxis. It’s a small attractive space, with the shop downstairs and the tasting room above on a mezzanine. Along with the wines you can also purchase quality food items, and there will also be some wines available to try before you buy. Have to say that Plaza Regina is fast becoming one of the hippest places in town.
I love Christmas, and I am particularly looking forward to THIS Christmas because friends Julie & Steve (aka the Cheeky Pigs) are coming to Sevilla to spend the holidays with ME! 🙂
But this… this is way too early Butlers. It’s not even November! I actually liked the good ol’ days when the Christmas street lights were turned on every year on December 8th (Immaculate Conception) and turned off again on January 6th (Epiphany), and even El Corte Inglés didn’t light up until December. But it gets earlier every year.
