Well, well, well. A tiny bit delayed, but I can now officially confirm that the fun has started! As of 12:24pm on Saturday 24 November, Flat Richie is on his way from his starting point in Dublin to…
I sent it registered/tracked, so I am going to watch the parcel’s progress to its first destination.
I was very pleased that a) all my items fitted into an old Amazon Prime cardboard box that I had saved for this purpose. I hope you can keep using it. Should you like to add items that are big and therefore need a bigger box, feel free to use a new cardboard box! As mentioned before, I have left the items unwrapped. That saves us extra weight, and it means that the recipients can actually see what the items are that they are choosing from.
I hadn’t aimed for any specific weight, but I was delighted the parcel stayed below the 2 kilo mark. So, in fact, for comparison’s sake – I paid 22 Euro (including tracking) for the parcel. I really hope that no one has to cough up much more than that!
There’s the parcel in its entirety, addresses blanked out for surprise’s sake. Hopefully the parcel will arrive at its destination within the next week. I stupidly forgot to write anything into the log book *doh* – but I enclosed a card specifically for recipient number 1. I really hope that she will remember to use the log book!!! And now, let the fun begin!
