Earlier this week a dear blogger buddy wrote on social media she had forgotten to buy her son his normal advent calendar. This wouldn’t sound a problem to most parents but I realised my friend was rather upset and I was determined to get a Lego Star Wars advent calendar to her son somehow!
I had been trying every website I knew, both for instore and online stocks. All sold out. I wanted to give up as I felt I might not be able to sort this…. But I am far too stubborn to quit. I phoned my local radio station and explained that Lynn’s son was really upset, and I really wanted their help. My plan was to ask the local people to hand one in – maybe there was one in a small independent toy shop that I had never heard of? Maybe there was a “write off” in a retailers stock room due to a damaged box?
It was the only thing I could think of, but the radio station wanted me on-air…..
Listen to what happened here.
Then they phone Lynn, poor lass, this probably wasn’t how she saw a frustrated tweet about Lego stock levels turning out that morning.
Look away now if you haven’t heard the radio clip yet, you don’t want to spoil the ending.
