I ordered a new pipe from Elie.
One of my favourite pipes broke at a weld and was unrepairable. I did try various methods to fix it but was unsuccessful. I decided to treat myself to a present of a new one.
Elie duly packaged my pipe and sent me the tracking code. I like tracking codes as they give me an idea that something is actually happening in that period between posting and delivery. I put the code into my tracking website [I use Parcelsapp]

Fuck! That cunt of a postman has done his usual trick. Instead of ringing the door bell or knocking on the window, or even doing the obvious thing and just leaving it on the doorstep, he has written out a little card telling me he couldn’t or wouldn’t deliver it and has taken it all the way back to the sorting office.
Now I have to drive into Skobieville to collect it.
