Looking forward to a parcel stamped "Royal Mail" from The Book Depository, I was about to unlock my mailbox when I heard snarling. Instinctively turning to the sound I looked up into the foaming jaws of a canine boxer looking down on me from his post on top of a hot tub. It's peering down at us from above the owners' fence. Deacon and I made our escape and didn't look back to check if the dog had leapt the fence.
Safely inside the house I turned on the computer only to find out my pre-order of Greenbanks from The Book Depository has been cancelled. My credit card has been refunded. It all sounds so final. I'm at the back of the line, out of the latest Whipple release loop!
Has anyone else experienced the same feeling of utter disappointment today due to an email sent by The Book Depository? A support group might make me feel better.
