My husband threw his back out the other night and has been at home trying to recover. He’s on the mend so he’s up and about and yesterday he was making a sandwich when he looked out the window and saw the mailman try to stuff a Flat Rate Envelope down the mailbox.
He went outside to rescue it and the mailman was a bit miffed and said if we plan on getting any more envelopes of this size we should really get a larger mailbox.
Well, it’s not like I’m going to stop ordering stuff but I’m not particularly keen on having a dropbox out there with a large slot and a note saying “Any large and interesting parcels can be dropped here”. That’s just begging to be robbed.
The mail carrier have a system where if the parcel is too large for being dropped in a box they leave a slip in the box and bring the parcel to the pick-up station. My guess is he wasn’t keen on bringing it back with him.
I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to do.
This whole affair meant I have some City Weekend-fabric to play with! There should be another parcel for me today or tomorrow with one more knit that I ordered, as well as another parcel from a different store with the red City Weekend colourway. I am so excited.
I have this Saturday “off” from the family and I plan to trace a bunch of patterns this week so I can get started on cutting fabric and sewing on Saturday. If I’m lucky I might be able to cut fabric during the week so I can just sit down at the machine after breakfast and get stuck in.
Too bad Isabel’s still not sold on the Ramble in the Park fabric I got for her. With a bit of luck I might be able to make it last for a tunic for myself.
