Wrong delivery address!

White van

When I arrived home today I was fully expecting to find a delivery note from a the Royal Mail or a courier company to say that they’d tried to deliver our new digital camera. On Friday I received the following e-mail from SavaStore:

Dear Gareth Saunders

That’s me.

Thank you for your order placed with savastore.com

You are very welcome.

The order has now been despatched to you.


So I was fully expecting to find a note this evening indicating that the camera had at least reached Fife. But what I failed to take into account was that I’m an idiot.

I’ve just realised that having ordered the new digital camera (Fuji Finepix S5600) the other day I had arranged for it to be delivered … to my old address in Edinburgh! Or at least, I just didn’t change the default address.

While we set up a mail redirection with the Royal Mail, sadly it doesn’t also apply to courier companies like CityLink.

Thankfully, however, Jane is in Edinburgh until Wednesday, so is going to pick up the delivery note and arrange to collect the camera from the depot before she jets back to Cellardyke on Wednesday evening.

How exciting … but it still doesn’t distract from the fact that I’m an idiot! An idiot with too many people to inform about our recent relocation.

  1. looks like a nice camera – altho the link is to the S5600… there is also an S9500… so which is it?

    shame that a muppet will be in charge of it!

  2. Well spotted. I’ve corrected it now. We’re getting the Fujifilm Finepix S5600. I’m sure Jane will be more responsible with it, and its spelling than I have been.

    Hey! Who knows, maybe I’ll accidentally send something that I’ve ordered to you next time, Rich!

    Jane tried to collect it from the depot today, but she was too late, they’d taken it out to our empty house once again! She has arranged to pick it up tomorrow morning. Where would I be without Jane?

  3. Hi Gareth – have been following your blog for a few weeks, I’ve got over my initial feelings of voyeurism and really look forward to your missives each day… most days at least.

    Anyway why have I chosen to write now?

    Simple really, you owe me £363.99 why?? I’ll tell you!

    When you were talking of your failed camera delivery, I followed your link to the Fuji camera S5600 but you said it was a S9500 so when your link was wrong I searched for the S9500 found it and and fell in love. Bought and paid for and in my hands tonight. It is fantastic, think you may have gone for the wrong one… 😉

    So thanks for your bloggings and your invaluable photgraphic recommendations. By the way I’ll let you off the 99p we’ll just call it £363 for cash.
