I didn't even realise the last thread was nearly at the end blush

As usual I'll stick the long OP in the next message, but haven't been so diligent about keeping it updated since it's so close to Christmas and it's all slowed down, sorry.

LEGO definitely complain to the retailer about yodel. My husband did this with a gap delivery, one phone call from gap to yodel and an hour later the parcel was delivered.

I was on the phone on hold for 20mins but I gave up becuase tbh I can't afford an expensive call!

Apparently it's been delivered to Borhamwood...I live in N London so I've no idea whats going on!

Gah!! I was SO pleased it was on it's way and now I'm annoyed again! Though am annoyed at myself for throwing it away in the first place!

Bastard M&S - I ordered a load of wrap and stuff on Tuesday. Today 3 boxes arrived as it was not available to collect in store - one box not there. It came in three separate deliveries. Now it appears that the 4th box is showing as being signed for at the same time as the last one - erm, no!

Speak to M&S, this happen to me last year. They re delivered last box, and after Christmas I got a full refund and an apology. There customer service is good.

WaitMonkey Fri 20-Dec-13 21:10:28
