The postman is no doubt objecting to this sudden diversity of interests too. We live up a long, steep, rough driveway, and everyday a new parcel arrives to satisfy the ideas that are rushing around inside.
Do you remember back to the olden days of Kays catalogue? (My mum didn't buy from Kays, she bought from something else, but for the life of me I can't remember the name). Anyway you would choose the item, send off your form and then wait, and wait, and wait. The standard phrase was ' please allow 28 days for delivery'.
Then along came the internet, and finally Amazon and Screwfix, and now we expect things the next day.
But a few weeks ago I wanted something and I trawled the internet and I could only find one company that sold precisely what I wanted. When I placed my order it did say 7-10 days, but really, I mean that was just a catch-all, surely?
