So. After I posted the previous post, yesterday, Kate arrived home. The guy next door had approached her on the driveway and given her a parcel “He’d forgotten about”. It was my book.
Not only that, as the parcel had been reported as lost, Amazon had refunded us the money and Kate had already ordered another. So now we have two, and a £5 Amazon voucher as an apology.
I take back what I said about my luck.
