Back in April I was shown a site for Foodie Pen Pals by one of my friends who knows how much I enjoy cooking and baking. Thinking it would be a lot of fun I signed up. I was told who I had to send a parcel for, I stalked her blog/twitter for inspiration, bought some treats and sent them off along with some home made goodies. I then sat back and waited for my parcel to arrive, only 2 weeks later and nothing. I’ve tried emailing my sender in case she’s ill or if it’s gone missing in the post and yet again, nothing.
I would have loved to post a blog entry with loads of photo’s of awesome goodies like what my recipient did but I doubt I’ll get the chance as my gut feeling is telling me to give up as it’s just not going to happen. The whole experience has left me feeling pretty upset and bitter truth be told. I work part time for minimum wage and my parcel, along with p&p cost over £18. It’s not Carol Anne’s fault as she’s been trying to chase this up as well and it’s certainly not Emma’s either. The last remaining glimmer of hope is thinking positively that something good happens in the next few days otherwise I doubt I’ll be willing to contribute towards future months. I just can’t afford to do so, both mentally and financially.
