Since my birthday, my tolerance for fools - thin as it was - has completely

and since I can firmly be a fool as well - I've completely lost
patience with myself. I had a truckload of rants built around hairdressers,
bosses, clients, recruitment agencies and web rip off merchants
- but I will absorb those into my brain and save you all from them.

Instead, I will tell
you that I have a new cell phone. It's pretty and its silver and
it has a electric blue backlight on the keys. Its a Nokia something-or-other
and I have to say, that orgainising it was so simple, it made
a very nice change to my week. I also ran into Mags and Marion
trying on hulking great diamond rings and I also have to note
that diamonds suit us all !

Hi Michelle

Sorry about that.

We have recorded that we sent 3 emails to you requesting
permission to quote you.

Obviously between what we asked for and what we thought
we had permission for was not the same (ie, When I placed
your quote on our site, I assumed that one of our other
staff had received back permission from you. Hence why we
put the reference to your website etc as I assumed we had
permission when I put the quote on our site.)

Our sincere apologies for this, as you are quite right,
we would not have intentionally done this, as it is not

I have removed your quote.

Sorry about that.

Warm regards

Simon Cope
