With less than 24 hours to go, there is a fair degree of worry in the household as we wait for middle son’s A level results… like thousands of other worried parents and students up and down the land, we have been reading lots of newspaper articles describing the 50% cut in places available through clearing, some students probably not getting secured places despite getting the grades needed and the fact that 1991/1992 was a boom baby year. This time tomorrow it will all be done and dusted and at least we will know how to move forward, but at the moment it is a horrible waiting game.
We decided now would be a good opportunity to devise a special Student Offer, so we have come up with a 20% discount on Single Duvets (Autumn, Winter or All Seasons) and also a 20% discount on Merino Underblankets. Purchased together, we will add in a lambswool pillow free of charge. This is something some friends suggested last year and we decided to put a good idea into practise! It is going to have a mention in Bargain Hunter in the Daily Telegraph on August 28th, so if it is something that tempts you, we suggest acting soon and letting us know …
Our Lanolin Skincare range has had a bit of an update; we have consolidated the gift idea to one Presentation Box, everything all snuggled inside some lambswool, wrapped with ribbon and looking gorgeous- great value for money at £29.50 as it includes something of everything and also postage.
A precious family holiday is almost on the horizon, with three teenage sons it is quite something that they are all still happy to accompany us, so we will be heading off to North Cornwall, the menfolk will all go cycling and I am heading for a beach that I have been told has tropical shells washed ashore- perfect!
