The boxes have arrived!

Yes, after a journey of 8 weeks or more, that took them through Liverpool, Europe, and the islands off Morocco, and then 10 days in customs being looked at... John, Paul, George and Ringo, my 4 boxes sent from London, have finally arrived and been delivered.

It;s a strange sensation, there isn't really anything within them that I urgently need, and yet to be re-united with them and their contents, I was like a kid in a candy store opening them up and checking nothing was broken, and excitedly taking out objects... It was like Christmas for adults!

I was also treated to my first experience of super efficiency in Johannesburg. The delivery was scheduled for a time between 9:30 and 10:30 - and yet at 8:30 the driver called me on my mobile to say he was already parked outside my front gate.

So pergaps efficiency does exist - just not in the drivers licence department....
