    I was like that when I was waiting for my new bike a few months ago - the postal servicecouriers always seem to get slower when you really want what they're bringing.

    .. have alerted neighbours... placed lookouts on rooftops in vicinity. Mutt camped out in hallway on red alert just in case all else fails.
     
  5. So did they arrive? Or are you waiting to go through all this again tomorrow?

    Is it today they are on strike? I have just passed a postie, on his bike, on the way back from the school run. I know him quite well, and he never mentioned a strike.

    Maybe he is a scab, I'll pass his adress on to Redcogs if he is :?:

    Sabdle and panniers? Great. That means you can be like Eeyore with his empty honey jar and burst balloon, and get even more pleasure putting the saddle in the pannier and taking it out again... :?:
