What did the postman bring?

So, DPD is supposed to deliver between 12.14 and 13.14 today (I assume they mean 2019,ย not 1989 ๐Ÿ™‚ย ). I am delivery number 41 (was number 74 two days ago)

I'm not holding my breath, but will be tracking the driver.

ย 

I've always found DPD to be very good. I had a driver waiting outside once and when I asked him what he was waiting for he said he wasn't allowed to deliver my parcel early! I do hope their standards aren't slipping now though, they are so refreshingly good vs Yodel!

Me too, they are my favourite delivery company as you at least get a timedย slot so you don't have to wait in all day.

Actually have never had a problem with Parcelforce either, so it seems like I'm in the minority here.

Like Stu said, I hope that their standards aren't slipping.

The trick it seems is to forget DPD are coming. They turned up yesterday with a 1Kg tub of optical pitch I had forgotten I had coming. They delights of old age!

PS now what was I going to do with it.

Don't you need a ladder to get on it on the upper positions?

Seriously nice simple well executed design.

Looks more like an observers perch than chair but more importantly how well does it work? ๐Ÿค”

Not used it yet, John. Yes it is a bit like a perch.ย 

Just as long as I don't fall off it. Or even get nailed to it ๐Ÿ™‚

Nothing, in spite of the RM tracking site saying my package had been delivered yesterday, this is the second time recently, not with neighbours and no card through the door. [rude word]

Some accessories for my mirrorless Sony (thanks Glen).ย  Hoping the mask helps speed up focussing, and it will be interesting to see how well the Hoya RA54 filter deals with light pollution/background.
