I can't say that I am in the least bit tempted to use this firm, should I ever find it needful to courier anything around the country. I was rather disappointed with the service and the response to my enquiries about my package's whereabouts.
At some point in the middle of yesterday evening, I went to put some things in the recycling bin in the driveway. I was a bit surprised to find a black bin bag sitting next to it. Neither The Builder nor I would leave black bags filled with stuff in the driveway. I picked it up - and inside it was my package!!! I assume that the people to whom it had been wrongly delivered had looked up the postcode and dropped it round. I wish they had rung the doorbell or knocked on the door. I would have liked to thank them.
So my new Old English Sheepdog has arrived. She is very, very cute, but I don't think she'll do as a substitute for Farley. She's HUGE! Much, much bigger than I had been expecting.
Here is Farley:
and here is the new dog
As I say - cute but huge. I don't think I can carry her in my small backpack! But she needs a name ...
Now all I need is for Marcus and Sanford to have second thoughts and to re-open The Nettle and the week will end perfectly. Alas - I don't think that is going to happen
