    Totally off topic..

    What came in the post for you today?

    I'll go first - a packet of seeds and surprisingly a face mask as a complimentary gift!

    Ha! Fun topic.

    Nothing has come in the post for me so far today, but yesterday I had two deliveries, one was a pack of Dylon fabric dye (espresso colour) and the other - to my disappointment - was for next door but 2.
    They still haven't come round to pick it up, so it is sitting on the hall shelf waiting for them.

    In the post today, I received my periodic mailing from Lakeland.

    The myLakeland club is great. This time around, I have a voucher for 20% off a spend over £50 for a few weeks, followed by a 10% off spends of £30+, until mid-September. And 20% off both School of Wok and Colourworks products

    Those are dangerous pieces of paper. That said, Lakeland is a dangerous shop!

    My covid supplies dropped in yesterday - we have a porch (other vehicles available) so Mr, Mrs, Miss, Mzz Posty (other identifying proto nouns available).
    So, Vitamins B, C, D, some calcium, magnesium, zinc, a case of merlot, a bag of fresh turmeric to make turmeric tea, some leaflet advertising, in glorious technicolour, a wide range of disgusting so called food products that are probably cooked in someones garage and delivered directly to your door by some hygienically bewildered spotty youf on a bicycle that he/she or it nicked the other night. Oh! And a parcel by the now newly invented lean against the door (even if it’s chucking it down with cats and dogs and frogs and locusts), ring the bell and run away. I can’t tell you what is in the parcel it’s a secret.

    What arrived in the post today for my household was in a brown envelope marked confidential.
    No, no not another tax demand, but it did have the words batteries not included.
    Yes you guessed it, a drone....

    Ahh the post today.
    In 2 plain brown envelopes marked confidential.
    I bet the postman was laughing.

    The contents have screwed up my plans for a ride out on my motorbike.
    Yep a short notice telephone hospital consultation. They inform me twice at short notice.

    Good job I had blood tests done a couple of weeks ago.

    Grrrrr
