In March FuelMyBlog asked its viewers if they would like a free t-shirt. A free T-shirt? Erm of course I would.
The T-shirt was to come from Uncle Iffy at Iffyton High Street.
I followed the links and came across a virtual high street with great graphics. It looked so exciting.
Imagine then my deep disappointment because of having a severe internet headache and a connection slower than the slowest snail ever ....I could only view the 'Street' but couldn't interact with it all.
All 'seems' to be Bill Whizz at the moment but the connection is not constant (grrr Sir Branston Pickle) ... however, I have been able to have a good fossick around the site now and it is tremendous.
I have even met Uncle Iffy (ok virtually) and oh how he reminds of me of certain other bloggers .. barking mad in true British eccentric style ... wonderful :-)
Due to my blip on the internet I was allowed another chance to order a free T-Shirt (thank you so much FMB and Uncle Iffy x)
With the help of my teen we studied the site and we selected the one we both liked ... ordered it in a size that would fit us both & off the order went.
Yesterday I got home from work. Teen was out and on the dining room table was this
ArHHH! I know what was innit oops in it
The T-shirt had arrived (in spiffing clickity quick time I must say) and had been claimed (so much for getting one that fits us both. I have no chance !!)
I texted teen 'where are you? luxx'
Reply '@ trfrd cntr. T-shirt is ace. CU l8r. Lu loads xx'
A quick translation..... she was at the Trafford Centre.
She bounced through the door at 9 pm and was so excited.
'you'll never guess Mum!'
'I expect not! What?' I replied
'I got asked twice where I had got my T-shirt from. Firstly some 'randomer' girl stopped me and said' I love your T-shirt. Where did you get it from?' I told her my Mum got it off the internet. She asked what site but I told her I didn't know' she said
'Iffyton High Street' I replied
' Like I would remember that??... Then I went into Republic and the girl behind the till said 'cool T-shirt it is so individual, I would love one like that, where did you get it from?'
I butted in 'ermm My Mum got it off the internet'
'yeah that is what I said and I didn't know from where from!!' she added
Kids hey !!
But be proud indeed Uncle Iffy your t-shirts have hit the streets of Manchester and have not gone unnoticed... it really is a great product and if this one is anything to go on I will be ordering more ... but could you do me a favour? Could you send me some business cards and I will make sure Teen hands them out with each enquiry.
She is off to Rome on Sunday and the now 'fav' T-shirt is off to Italy with her .. I will give her a note as to where she got it from should some one say 'Amo la vostra camicia in cui lo avete comprato' (not that she would have a clue what they actually said lol
