Who would ever have thought I'd be looking forward to paying a custom's charge! I arrived home today to find a slip left by Royal Mail which meant only one thing: my order of goodies from Perfumer's Apprentice has arrived. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait till Saturday to get my paws on it, because of tomorrow's Bank Holiday. And even when I do get to bring it home - after I've paid the UK government for the privilege - I won't be able to do very much with it, because of the aforementioned shortage of bottles, droppers, tester strips etc etc. But I'm not getting too down about that right now because somewhere, in a depot not too far away, is a box with my name on it containing my very first ever supply of aldehydes. And that's a thought that's very, very exciting!
