Amazing Fact - Merry Christmas!

Post by barr7430 » Tue Dec 24, 2013 10:16 am

I posted a parcel of Warfare Miniatures First Class at 1610 hours yesterday. They arrived in Norfolk before 1000 this morning!

Now, should we be surprised? amazed? disbelieving? or just happy that for once, despite the Christmas rush.. a piece of mail travelled the length of the country in less than 18 hours and arrived safely.

I am delighted! The consignee is delighted! Merry Christmas to all of us.. my faith has been somewhat restored in the season of goodwill and renewal.... ah, I feel a church visit coming on :D

Congats to UK postage!! Their deliveries to the Antipodes have been a little erratic, though.

I'm not sure if it is the 32 degree centigrade heat today, or just the time of the week, but it really does not feel much like Christmas here! Perhaps a rum ball & whisky may help!

Anyway, ....

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :D

May Santa have been browsing the games sites, and may 2014 be happy, healthy & full of good gaming!

Cheers, Rohan.

That's pretty amazing for Royal Mail. Pity they refuse to ship more than four pots of acrylic paint in any one consignment!

Do you always state what you send with the packages, i.e., Rubber toys? :D

I wish all a Merry Christmas!

Best Wishes,
