Seriously, the worst thing about buying things online. People always extol the virtues of the convenience of having things delivered to your door, but gods, they never mention the torture in waiting. The torture of waking up three hours earlier than usual and not being able to get back to sleep because I know that if I sleep, I'll miss the door. The torture of not being able to go for a morning dump or a shower, because if I do, the courier will take that as their exact moment to strike. Soon as that first bomb hits the bowl, I just know it. Then the torture as every single vehicle larger than a motorbike that slows down near my house (I live by a quiet junction) makes me jump up and think that it could be them, and ditto, when any of the neighbours slam their car doors shut. Sounds just like a van's door. But it's not.

And I have from 7:30am until 5pm of this. Christ. Forgive me if I come off as a little tetchy this morning.

Normally about 9. I didn't open my eyes to check until a few minutes past seven, but I was consciously awake from, judging by the amount of light coming through my window, about 6. I went to bed at about 2.

An E6300 CPU, and the P45 Zilent that was posted yesterday. The worst thing is that my graphics card order didn't go through until past next-day cut-off time, so it's going to be same again tomorrow, too.

*dies*

The frame will come from one company and the plastic roofing sheet will come from another,Be really careful with these as they will break easily,:thumbsup:

I gave up on waiting for things.... I just go about my day nowadays and if they happen to call at an inopportune moment :whistling: then I just call the depo and have it arranged for re-delivery, sometimes can specify then when you would like it too (morn/afternoon) - and one time I got to the door just as the driver was driving down the street (he'd knocked and waited all of 30 seconds before giving up :roll:) and I phoned the depo, and they told the driver to turn around and come back to deliver, lol.... he wasn't a happy chap that day.

A watched pot never boils, try forget about the courier and it'll arrive before you know it.
