COUNTRY DELIVERY SYSTEM
Well it’s been a really mild day here today and some sunshine inbetween one very quick shower,
So all in all for the time of the year "who could ask for anything more,
Now here in france "living deep in the countryside it has some very very old ideas ref mail order and delivery of goods,
My other half (her indoors) has ordered a leather hand bag and this was ordered from a french mail order company.
But its common practice to have the goods delivered to the nearest village and not your home address,
this means you “the customer” get a phone call from the shop or tourist information office to say your goods have arrived and then you arrange a time for you “the customer” to collect.
Well we’ve been told the bag will be at this french kitchen supply shop after 2pm on tuesday,
As the weather was so nice today i got the beast out
(my car) and off we went to do a recce to find this kitchen shop,
And we did find it first time “so now we’re feeling good about tuesdays delivery”
Funny the way some old ideas have stood the test of time,
Even the village post office has a seat in front of the counter for the old people to use.
How’s your day been?
