Yes, signed for , and can happily post, but it'll only work if my recipient knows her recipient nn. There is no point me posting if she doesn't find out her recipient nn until the parcel arrives, as she then won't know I am talking to her. Which kinda brings me back to my original question. Are the recipients notified of their nn before they receive a letter/packet/parcel address to their recipient name?
Did your housemate send it 'Signed For'? If so there will be a 'track & trace' number (it's called the Barcode (number) on the receipt). You could ask your recipient to PM you and then you can PM her the 'track & trace' number.
Only posted under my normal name cos I was on my phone and changing my nn on there is a pain and a half. What I was planning on was contacting MNxxxx as my Secret santa name, asking if there were any days she was/wasnt in to receive a signed for package, and would send it to coincide. As it happens my housemate posted it whilst I was at work today, which was extremely kind and helpful, but means I cannot try and make sure the recipient will be there the day it arrives. As it has been sent to the mumsnetter of the house, it will have to be redelivered if there isnt anyone in, as it isnt possible to collect from the sorting office as the recipient wont have id in the name of 'mumsnetter of the house'
Am wondering if the recipients know their name before receiving their gift? Am sending a gift to be signed for and would like to check with the recipient if any day is better/worse than others, if that is possible
