Aw ...

Diamond car insurance sent me a birthday card by email.

I am strangely touched.

It said:
Happy birthday Stray*.
Hope you have a lovely day,
and eat lots of cake!

Bless them.

*Diamond car insurance do not call me Stray. Obviously.

But why don't they call you Stray, when that is your name?????

I'm confused.

They call me Ms Stray.
Of course.

I just switched from Diamond to Sheila's Wheels (the latter was much cheaper but I am still very ashamed of this due to their adverts). Had Diamond sent me actual cake rather than mere greetings I might have stayed with them.

Diamond are very nice though and didn't tell me off when I phoned them earlier today to tell them I had lost a document I was meant to send back to them. Oops.

Don't be seduced, Stray. They only want your money. Now if they'd sent a cake, that might be different.

Ah Ms M, oh that I were that self assured. The thing is, to buy my affections, people (and corporations) don't have to actually give me stuff. No. They just need to be nice to me. *sigh*

Well, I popped over to say "hi" and sing Happy Birthday, Ms Stray. I'm a member of the Sainsburys Reward scheme (although I rarely shop there) and on my birthday they sent me a coupon (with a piccy of birthday cake on it) enticing me to visit their store and pick up a free (albeit tiny) cake. This coincided with my decision to start dieting. Yuk!

I've just come back from Walt Disney World where every second kid seemed to wear a pair of Heelys and I WANT THEM TOO!

Can I just say how utterly envious I am of you (in the nicest possible way) because you had the courage to go out and get a pair of Heelys.

Easy does it on those (w)heels, girl!

Dont let them fool you. They were not that nice 5 years ago. Somebody nice must have taken over. They never sent me a card, just a huge bill when I tried to leave them. And there was I thinking I was the one who had issues surrounding loss. no no, Diamonds issues are bigger and the punishment is expensive.

Mr Swimmer,

Badger and I have been whizzing around the house. We are getting really good. I wheeled from the larder to the sofa with drinks in hand without even realising!

The cake sounds good. Tesco have just dropped a fair few points in my estimation. No matter how small, free cake is not to be sniffed at.

Badger - I shall watch out for diamond nurturing a co-dependent relationship.
