Return To Sender


Just over two weeks ago we ordered a new dog harness for Rick from Amazon France.  They quoted a week for delivery.  Rick was getting very excited at the prospect of a brand new harness but then we were notified by La Poste that the package had been damaged in transit and returned to sender.  Amazon France were apologetic but, as it had been sent by a third party, they could only refund the money and we would have to re-order the item.  Paul duly re-ordered the harness.  It was supposed to be delivered this morning.  It hasn’t arrived.  Quelle surprise.

In the meantime Rick still gets his exercise.  Philippe’s dogs are in the background looking enviously at Rick’s fun.  Rick just wants to know when he will get his lycra shorts.


Pan-fried green chillies for lunch today.  Thanks for the recipe Cro!

  1. You should have entered that small green chilli on the left into John Gray's novelty fruit and vegetable competition with the title "Donald Trump's Appendage".

    1. That's very naughty Mr Pudding. Anyway, it's the wrong colour.

    2. You are very definite about the colour. Inside info?

  2. What would we do without Amazon, they've even got the post office making deliveries on Sundays now.

    1. Amazon UK is very good with their deliveries, usually next day.

  3. We have shops here. They sell things over the counter, you pay and you take them home.

    1. Just didn't feel like traipsing from town to town to find the right thing. It should have been simple.

  4. Now we need to know what those chillies tasted like.
    Also of course what Rick thinks to his new delivery.

    1. The chillies were surprisingly tasty. We might need to grow extra plants next year. Rick is still waiting for his delivery.

  5. I recognise Phillipe's dog with the black ears, he was the one I found wandering around lost.

    Yesterday I received a parcel from Amazon. It was a replacement Sky TV remote control and came in a box the size of a fridge. I have so many of those peppers that I'm having to freeze them. Are they the same 'Long des Landes' variety? I eat about 6 every day; delicious.
