Quite a few of you have mentioned via mail, face book and here that actually the jam making course (as mentioned in yesterdays blog entry relating to the Boots advert) sounds quite good. Either being ill has made me a little more loopy than usual or I just have too much time on my hands, but either way, I just dropped Boots a mail:o)
As many people don’t get my humour I assume I am likely to be ignored as a nut, but I thought it would be interesting to see if 1) I get a response, and 2) what the response is.
This is what I wrote:
Hello lovely Boots person,
I was wondering if you can help me? I’ve been off work sick this week and have succumbed to the joys of daytime tv. One of the many adverts I have seen is yours which, although very lovely, caused me more than a little consternation. I summarised this in my blog entry here: https://thepogblog.wordpress.com/2010/11/11/a-disturbing-thought-and-a-thank-you/
Much to my surprise, many people contacted me to say that I was not alone and they too (despite being your target audience – I assume – of 30 something women) would rather like to go on a jam making course.
I was just wondering if you could tell me where I could get such a good value course that is comparable with your 3 for 2 offer?
I do obviously also love all your smellies – I don’t want to paint the wrong picture here but any advice on jam making courses would very much appreciated…:o)
I’ll let you know should I get a response…:o)
