Christmas comes early from Amazon for Trish
"Your parcel is expected to be delivered on Monday." I received this email on Friday December 7. I couldn't remember what it was and there was no clue in the text, apart from a shipment number.
Nervous about clicking on links in emails in case they are scams, I chanced it and realised it was a gift I was sending to Dougie's cousin, Gail, in Scotland. I messaged her to let her know it was on its way, in case she needed me to suggest a safe place or a neighbour or a different date. No worries, Monday would be fine.
On Saturday morning, another email arrived: "We're on our way!" It was the same parcel but somehow it had travelled in a TARDIS and was about to land between 9.16 and 10.16am that morning. So much for my helpful communication the previous day.
