Hi Skyray - I really cannot criticise Royal Mail in this area - deliveries are made early in the day and usually two days is normal delivery time scale. I think that my expectations for this lot was rather optimistic[Image: tongue.gif].

I must admit out of the hundreds of parcels I've received only the odd one goes missing, my main gripe with them is delivering parcels and not posting cards through the door also making mistakes on where they send them when they do! The post office is a matter of 50 yards away if that, yet they persist on taking them back to the depot which is 2 miles away and only opening 4 hours a day mainly when I can't collect them which i think is mainly down to their laziness more than anything, I've had a few arrive late as well on the wrong days to when they say delivery is through i think this is more a local problem, Gotta hate waiting in for a parcel that doesn't turn up on the day stated, Many couriers give you an hour slot on when they are going to deliver it should be the same with the royal mail the price they charge for postage

Yes - I agree - the charges are getting a little over the top now.

I have already built my two coils for the RDA's that are coming[Image: tongue.gif]. One works out at 1.18ohms and the other at 1.3ohms. They will both be drippers - to start with.

100kg of house coal and 150kg of smokeless stuff for the stove in the sitting room. It doesn't like ordinary coal, though it is happy with wood.

250kg is the delivery minimum. Might get another couple of hundred kg shortly to keep it stocked up.

Fuel is so expensive now - all kinds and wood is probably the most expensive of all.
