Naked self-interest

I just want to mention that as part of the mammoth clean-out operation that awaits me today, I will be taking about 20 items to the dry-cleaners and buying a lot more moth death ray spray and a lot more insecticide, which of course means I can't buy any new clothes. Unless you ordered something from Pure Cashmere from the link above and I get 12 per cent of whatever you spend. Or 22 per cent if you're a new customer. Don't you need a pashmina? But, you know, no pressure.

Sorry Linda, wrong time of year! I've unpacked all my summer clothes this afternoon and I'm revelling in colour, silks and linens and wonderful memories of holidays and summers passed. Post your notice again next September and I'll do my best!

Short of a nuclear attack, I can't think of anything worse. You have my acute sympathy. I will browse the cashmere site and do my best.

Can´t get this. I´ve commented 3 times and never had an answer. This is bad. Why won´t you answer questions-you and deja etc.? If this is going on, I´ll think I won´t visit your site no longer.

I can't say I know which questions you mean, as you don't give a name.

Linda, this may not be the place to ask this, but, I remember sometime ago reading an article in the Guardian about your sudden phobia about escalators. I've suddenly developed this too - how did you deal with it? Regards

Linda, I'd love to set up an affiliate deal with you. Shoot me an email.

I can't possibly afford to order cashmere right now, though I certainly understand as I lost a beloved grey loden coat to moths.

PLEASE exercise caution in terms of clothing that has been fumigated - my mum always hung anything dry-cleaned out on the balcony to air. We made brave jokes about fighting the Nazis here, but they did use insecticides to murder millions of human beings.

Hypnosis. It worked.

Thanks Linda - I'll try that!

Last fall I found a hole in my very fine cashmere knit, which I had worn only once. Got this ugly feeling and threw it away. Maybe I should check closely all the other clothes too. and send my furs for a professional clean up and summer keeps, although it is quite expensive, since I only wore my furs once this winter,cause of the mild climate. Luckily I own very few clothes and now intend to air them on the balcony for some time. I´ll have to check my husband´s stuff too. What a mess.

Don't know if you'll benefit, but I've just ordered a cardigan in the Pure sale via your blog website. Couldn't resist it at £76 with £100 off. As I'm a new customer you may get a small contribution to your next cashmere purchase.

Best wishes
