I got a message at 7:49am this morning saying that mine was due to be delivered today - it's now 2:30pm and still no book :( :bounce: :(

It's here! :D :D :D And what's even better is that I'd forgotten that I'd ordered a signed one! :D :D :D

I know my area has what is acknowledged by the post office as having the worst delivery in Britain,but 10 days for a package on 48 hour delivery? that`s got to be a record!

Wow, nothing posted here for over a year! Time to resurrect.

A mystery package from the Isle of Man Postal Service. I have made a few off-the-wall stampy purchases in the last month, so thought it might be something I ordered and forgot about. NOOOOO! A prezzie from Hansolobiker! :sunny: :sunny: A stamp set commemorating the Mayflower. :thumbl: :thumbl: :D :D 'nk you!

The latest Kel-organized envelope exchange offerings are trickling in. :sunny: :sunny: :thumbl: :thumbl: Lots of creativity and care from Flatelists and others.

A HUGE bottle of low-sodium soy sauce from the big A. Love or hate them, they've been supplying lots of things that can't be found in supermarkets anymore (or not locally, anyway).

An eBay order of lighthouse pictorial cancels from S. Korea. They took so long to arrive it was past eBay's cutoff date for feedback. You'd think they would fix that in response to the age of covid19. Lot's of treasures to play with.
