Fantastic day out with Panda on Swanage Railway then a great meal in The Greyhound Inn in Corfe Castle – good start to the Christmas Season !
I have a day off work \o/ Already had a nice lay-in of sorts, and a nice breakfast, polished off some nice pate and a cup of earl grey where normally it be a glass of water and loads of coffee at work.
Enjoying some tunes vi youtube – 1000mods – Vidage currenty playing, but its been a nice mix of psych-prog-rock most of the morning.
Hoping for a nice lunch with pand0r and catch up on an a nice afternoon nap after a few pints maybe 🙂
Mostly its pretty relaxing – trying to put the academics out of my mind for a day as I have alot of work coming up and need a break from it for just one day 🙂
Now.. rebuilding me other train set.. 😀
Had a fantastic evening out, curry, booze good banta – taxi home for less than 6 quid \o/
Keeping an eye on my alcohol consumption.. according to the bbc I should be concerned…
amazingly, everything has arrived from amazon.
Pretty happy right now, still got a few items to come, but glad the stuff i ordered a day or two ago has arrived in plenty of time and without complication.
Really excited for Christmas this year! Plenty of fun stuff going on and that we will have a lovely time !
I’ve risked ordering a few things from amazon.. hopefully everything will arrive on time. I don’t have the time or the inclination to goto the shops, invariably when I do go high-street shopping I can’t get what I want anyway, just the parking costs and rushed lunch!
Looking forward to an exciting weekend ! Cant wait to see my son again \o/
So spoke with the representitive from Amazon regarding my lost parcel. I have to say he was most helpful, and made it as effortless as he could to correct the issue. I got a full refund for the lost item, which was soon refunded to me.
Shame is the damage is done, and whilst the extra month of Prime membership is welcomed, its still not going to make me order ‘critical’ items online for Christmas.
So yesterday i was expecting a reasonably high-value item to turn up, and in Amazon its described as ‘lost’ – no idea whats going on there then !
And now today another item due for delivery is looking very unlikely in turning up. At the time of the year where I’d be thinking of saving the hassle of going shopping to a retail outlet so i can do it on-line and have it delivered, this is the worst time for Amazon to get it wrong.
Mostly it looks like i will be battling the crowds for my consumer frenzy-christmas and will hold off ordering anything from amazon until mid-jan 2017 so they can get their act back in order.
Amazon, you suck at the worst possible time.
