It's a 30 minute journey from Welwyn (on a bad day) so where the friggin hell is it?

On another note, I am pruning my bookshelves of those books I know, deep down, that I'll never re-read. I'm cataloguing them so that MWNN will have a list to refer to before he buys me any books. I'm keeping all the classics I've bought over the decades and the list will  also be useful for me when I come across any of Anthony Trollope's works - he wrote around 47 novels and I'm never sure which I have as some of them are on the boat waiting to be read. 

Anyone want the complete collection of JK Rowling or the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen Donaldson before they hit the local charity shop?

they forgot to put it on the truck,
Hee! That's what they say - I suspect my parcel's in a pub somewhere being sold as part of a 'fell off a lorry' deal. Parcelforce doesn't deliver after 12 on Saturdays so why it didn't make it to us this morning's anyone's guess. I'll probably be out (taking MWNN to the airport) when it arrives on Monday and then will begin the laborious process of getting it re-delivered and staying in for a whole day again!.

Ha! Parcel Force. Did I tell you about my PF fun?

I ordered a drill in late November for my Dad's present. By the 19th of December, I'm wondering where the hell it is and the seller says they sent it ages ago. They gave me the tracking number and it turns out it's been sitting at WGC since the 6th when they tried to deliver when I was out. As they never left a card, how am I supposed to know?

So I request online that they deliver to my parents where someone will in. They re-deliver to my address - I'm at work again, funny that, and they don't leave a card. The only reason I know is that I happened to look online.

By this time, I'm fuming. I can't get them on the phone because their automatic system requires a number from the cards they didn't leave and you can't opt out for an operator, because it gives you a terse message and disconnects you! My mum manages to get through to WGC eventually and agrees that we'll collect it sometime.

By now it's too near xmas and it's foggy and my Dad isn't that bothered so we wait until it's all over. I make another request online to deliver it to the parents. It turns up on the 27th. At my address.

Two days later another one turns up and the seller says I can keep it!

I knew you'd had problems, I didn't know the details. Worrying about the lack of cards through the letterbox - we've had that problem before. Sometimes I've heard the doorbell at the crack of dawn and by the time I've raced down the stairs, the van is gone and there's no sign of a card.

Two days later another one turns up and the seller says I can keep it.
I doubt that'll happen with an LCD HD TV.

Just so long as one arrives within the next few days, I'll be content.
