For days now I have been waiting for a few things to come in the post, four secondhand books and a couple of CDs. They were all ordered separately, and from different places at different times spread out over the past week or so. Everyday around lunchtime one of the texts to my GF has been any post? I like getting things in the post, that aren't bills it adds a little something to the day, particularly if it's been a bad one. Each day I've had a reply of nothing for me, or that a bill or bank statement has been delivered, but no signs of books or CDs.
Now I know that they will eventually turn up or I'll get my money back, 'coz that's the deal. What is looking more like happening though is that they will all turn up on the same day, and I'll get all my excitement in one go, rather than spread out over a few days. If might sound like no big deal, but sometimes it's the little things.
