Mission accomplished. I popped back down to the local delivery office today and was able to collect my parcel without any problems, despite the ‘sorry we missed you’ card being only partially completed. Job done – and it was the homebrew supplies I had expected.
Hopefully I won’t have too many more missed deliveries over the coming season although there’s already another item that was due to have arrived today but hasn’t shown up yet. However, originally I hadn’t expected it until tomorrow in any case, so I won’t panic on that one yet.
