No, Roger, it's already been there.
In fact it's done practically the whole of Scandinavia now - Denmark, Sweden, Finland and now Norway.
My guess might be Iceland next.

Somewhere to stay

I fancy taking my fancyman on a surprise mini-break somewhere just over the border in Spain - some time around the beginning of October.
Thought of spending one or even two nights away where we can eat well at reasonable cost and be a bit pampered.
Open to any suggestions.

Now at Malm.
By my reckoning this is further away from EVERYWHERE!
Joke has worn very thin.
There is no way I will see this parcel today.
Grrrrr.

Aw, come on, Percy.
Where are you???
Hope tracking is out of date.
If not, you are still somewhere in the depths of Finland.
This is nine days for heaven's sake.

Nice e mail received from Kyle in Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland!
Apologies for delay due to mislabelling of parcel.
We are to expect delivery on Friday!
Meanwhile, according to tracking, Percy remains somewhere in the depths of Finland.

It's in somewhere called Vantaa!!!
Looked it up - it is in Finland.
Tracking says - mislabelled and redirected!!
Back to Blighty to start all over again methinks.
Little man phoned up and had the nerve to ask if it was perishable.
Ah, well. Not to worry. Worse things happen at sea.

Well, you learn something new every day.
Could still be malaria of course.
Cure could be sealed container to Finland and lots of saunas.

Hot off the press.
Just had a phone call from Percy.
When he saw the F for France he decided it was Finland.
So he is in a sealed container bound for there.
When he arrives, a kind friend has promised to ship him back to the UK so that he can
"Start all over again"

Dear Mum and Dad,
It is really good here in Kopenhagen.
So good in fact that I have decided to stay on for another night.
Beer's a bit expensive though.

No, hasn't arrived.
Presume it will be Monday now and that Sunday is a day of rest.
Was just going to ask you - can we safely go out tomorrow do you think without worrying that they were trying to deliver and have returned it to Denmark!!!!!

Fingers crossed then that our delivery person is looking forward to a good Saturday night/Sunday morning knees-up and wants to lessen the load for the Monday hangover.
We were really hoping to receive the parcel and deal with it tomorrow.

That was about 18 hours ago. Since then - nada. Been making sure one of us was at home all the time just in case. W...
