That gives me hope, i normally receive it a few days after you George.

Although i did download the pdf this morning so will hold off reading that for a few days now.

Hopefully the shipments from Revolution and Rails will arrive shortly as well.

I did receive a parcel from FMR yesterday, dispatched on 15th April. Hopefully the one sent by Hattons on the same day will be here soon.

Still waiting for the delivery from Rails; 40 days tomorrow.  In the days when most things came by sea, that is more than 50 years ago, it used to take about 6 weeks.....

If it is any indication we had a couple of our customers in the UK tell us that they had received things from us that we had sent 3-4 weeks previously yet others are getting stuff in 1-2 days. Certainly in the UK things seem to be very variable.

I think Ben mentioned somewhere that his local PO wasn't accepting some international deliveries at the moment, so orders will have been packed (and marked as despatched when they're taken to the PO) - I could be wrong.  All the HOAs are coming from Ben so best to check with him.

I know it has nowt to do with Australia, but just confirming how strange the mails are these days. I had a parcel to send to America the other day. On checking the An Post website, no parcels were being accepted for posting to America from Ireland, yet packets and letters were. So I found a suitable sized box and just managed to get it accepted as a Packet. I presume parcels would travel on the same airplane as other mail.

thanks Mike @red_death , I did send a message to your info@revolution email address asking if this could be confirmed but heard nothing back after almost 2 weeks. I understand you have other jobs and this is only part time so haven't chased again as yet.
