They say the camera never lies, so I know I've still got to keep on with the diet if I want to lose that spare tyre round my middle (Moussaka apart!).
I'm hoping to try a weight-loss shake - anyone out there tried them? It's just that I fear they will taste horrible... I'm investigating a firm called Boot Camp in a Bottle and I've asked for a sample so I can make sure it tastes OK.
Boot Camp etc is yet another firm that offers free UK delivery but charges a fortune for delivery to France. I thought we were in the Common Market (or European Community as it is now called) with free trade and all that. Not free postage, obviously! I imagine that the firm has an arrangement with the Royal Mail or a courier for delivery in England, but what I want to know is why they can't at least take that cost off the postage to France?????
The product itself costs £39.99 (a month's supply, I think) but the postage to France is £14.50, almost half the cost of the actual product, putting the total cost up to a whopping £54.49!!!!
I find this happens frequently and some firms refuse to send to France AT ALL. Sometimes I feel as if I am in Outer Mongolia - or worse - Outer Space...
But I must put in a good word for the firm that I buy my printer ink from - they send me out the ink cartridges absolutely FREE of postage and as quick as you like. If you want to try them - they are called Ink Worldwide. Just ask for Dave and tell him Penny sent you...
