Against all advice, I have started doing the “Lottery”.
This involves sticking stamps onto envelopes and hoping against hope that they will arrive at their destination.
Now, having said that, we have been selling a few things on Ebay recently and one of them was a nice hand painted (By me) Barometer in the Roses and Castle style of the canals.
This had to be sent to the Channel Islands.
Unbelievably the postage cost is exactly the same as sending any other post around the country.
Not quite believing this, we sent our parcel from the local Herne Bay post office at eleven fifty am - which, incidentally, is staffed by the most miserable bunch of lemon suckers you could ever wish to meet - and it arrived in Guernsey first thing the next morning....Unbelievable!
Thinking about this, that parcel has had to get from our remote South East location in Herne Bay to an International airport, from there it has had to catch a plane out to the islands and from there be delivered by van.
The Post office did this easily enough within one day, but show them a bit of the fluffy white stuff and a simple letter can take two to three weeks to arrive here from Wales.
Consistency is obviously not their strong point!
Until next time…………………..
