Pass the parcel

Or you could get your very own retired man to go back and forth posting parcels via the post office.

Just like this one.
Except, this one was last seen being loaded into a Federal Express van outside of the cottage on the first of February. Loaded into the van with all the custom notes and the address of where it was supposed to didn't go as far as it should have done...  This is it, the same parcel a few minutes of coming back to us... I'm impressed good parcel packing.

This little knitted doll and mad monkey (and other stuff), are very well travelled. They all made it as far as Singapore and then all the way back home to the cottage in one week. That's not bad going, aren't trackers on parcels great ?

We had visions of never seeing the box or contents ever again. The courier even refunded the postage costs because the parcel only went as far as Singapore and not all the way to it's destination. BRILLIANT. They would have refunded even more if we wanted to re send the parcel with them again... Er, no, we think we will try another courier, well you never know, second time lucky. So Cambodia off you go on Monday box, and monkey and knitted doll and stuff.

No baby soap and okay I even took out the dog chew for Steven and Erica's little dog Mr Bean !

Freya is over at the catflap cavalier, she managed to take time out from her busy T.V. viewing schedule to visit Plymouth during the week.

Laila once sent me some photos and a card. The address was correct but someone at Canada Post said Return to Sender so we never got it. She got it back. Why didn't it arrive? No one knows. I hope your second attempt is with someone reliable.

Hope the second attempt is more successful - what a rigmarole!

I think I need that book. The other morning I stumbled groggily to the kitchen to hear Rob cheerfully inform me that he'd gotten up early and alphabetized my spices. My reply - Where's the coffee?

Save us from retired husbands.

I am so happy the cute monkey and pretty little doll made it back to your home- then off on its journey again.
