How's your day?

Samsung tab A7 Col.  I've still got a lot to learn but it does NS just like old times.  $240 from Amazon including a 64 gig sd card.  I'm satisfied thus far.

 

Edited to add. Always had a good experience with Amazon thus far.  This purchase had clearly not been opened and worked well right out of the box.

You'd think with a name like King, I would have stood a chance.

They still keep sending me emails of what's on offer!

I think Waitrose only deliver to the nobility. Even I don't rank apparently!

Come on Sir Phil.  There must be some mistake.  Lol.

Morrison's deliver weekly but they usually manage to cock something up. We can never get a delivery slot at Waitrose.

 

You need to bite the bullet and go downmarket...  :laugh:  Tesco are pretty reliable here...

Can't get a Tesco slot down here. As bad as Waitrose. Both say same thing, "not available".

I have a Waitrose delivery once or twice a week, got one this afternoon at 3.00pm. Surely being higher ranking than myself BK you are entitled.

BK. can’t you try booking for the next week or even the week after?  I always book my Sainsbury’s slot a week in advance.  I tend to order the same things every fortnight anyway!  As the delivery time gets closer I can amend the order by adding other things I find I need or deleting other things.  When  I amend the order, the delivery slot stays the same.

Wine deliveries both from Virgin and Laitwaites have been unreliable

 

Interesting....  I use Virgin Wines and have had very little delay.. even at the height of the first lockdown.  Not tried Laithwaites.  Also had some decent wine and nice Italian Deli stuff from Fattoria La Vialla:

Laithwaites on a few occasions have said 'unable to find address' and Virgin have twice left the case at the end of the drive in view from the lane. I've given up with both of them. I can buy Laithwaite's wine from the local farm shop.

BK It does take a bit of work but you can book Waitrose up to 10 days in advance, currently there are lots of slots 15th to 17th March in my area. To secure the slot I add a couple of bottles which takes me over the £40 and then amend the order the day before delivery. I've not been in a supermarket since March last year.

I can really assure you Dave, it's not for the want of trying. Had a look earlier today and it only went to Wednesday.

I’ve never ever ordered a supermarket delivery, whilst I can toddle out to the local Lidl’s and Co-op or drive to a bigger supermarket I shall keep doing so.  As things are at the moment needing a bottle of milk or loaf of bread is a good reason for a walk.  
I’ve just ordered a treat for myself from House of Fraser though, ssshhhh!!!

Alas, some of us don't have a store to walk to. That and the fact that a letter from HMG sitting on the table telling us not to travel, even to the pharmacy.

Meanwhile.. the re-laying of the 'patio' continues.. Slowly.  The mind is willing but the flesh is weak. Big day yesterday.. I manouvered all 3'x2' concrete flags away from the area in question.  I'm going to have to break them up get them down to the local tip at some point.

 

Today I laid two more 2'x2' pavers.  Doesn't seem like much but by the time I've levelled and compacted a bit of ground, then mixed mortar and finally lifted the buggers into place I'm done for another day...  We'll get there..

 

Meanwhile.. my miserable neighbour over the back fence has erected additional trellises above fence height.  I think he thinks he's blocking my view.  He has no idea how glad I am.

Have ordered online a few times, but only from Sainsbury's who always seem to have available slots. Our "essential" wine orders have always been from Majestic, who are good quality with a wide range

Good start to the day with a bit of rowing, shower and breakfast and ready for anything by 7.45 :biggrin:

At 9.20 precisely Donny and Dilly will fly in for breakfast and inspect Duckingham Palace for the 7th time. They have ben coming in for a fortnight now but don't stay overnight in spite of their magnificent new duck house, custom built using recycled 40 y/o fencing.

@DJ360  About getting rid of your 3x2 slabs ....Don’t you belong to a free cycle group or similar?  Round here they would have been collected as soon as you’d posted details!
