Apologies, again, for delays in shipping these past few weeks. Having intentionally closed down for the last week of November (see prevous News item here) I’ve since had to take off just over a week for recovery after surgery. As always, when you’re a one-man band, such things mean there’s nobody to run the business! Meanwhile, at time of writing, the UK’s about to undergo another batch of postal strikes and unfortunately there’s little we can do from this end beyond forwarding Tracking info if you’ve chosen a tracked mail option at Checkout. Today’s been the first day since the operation I’ve been fit enough to dig into the casting and posting pile, only to be defeated by realising there’s another strike tomorrow and that my rented stock storage has been leaking, BADLY, in the recent inclement British weather. Lots of damaged stock (and personal possessions) have put a cramp on today’s planned dig into the backlog, but I’ll be back at that Sisyphean task again tomorrow ready to ship out to you in the next official collection!
