Trials and Tribulations!

I recently ordered some knitting needles and crochet hooks from India. Little did I know the hoops I'd have to go through to get them!

First, paying for them was a nightmare. I had to set up a special payment method through my bank which took about a week. They were shipped as soon as this went through but then there was another problem; Customs. I have had to set myself up as an importer, and wait until I get clearance.  All the while this is going on the shipping company are charging me £10 a day storage!

Oh well, we live and learn!

I did have a good day on Monday though. Ray and I went to Colchester Zoo with Emily. We had intended to visit Framlingham, but Emily was given the choice of a castle or a zoo and the animals won. I think she was two the last time we went, and has it changed! The visit to the tortoise enclosure may have been more educational that a castle - it certainly drew the crowds!

Colchester is a brilliant zoo now requiring a trip every year at least we find- we can even persuade K to come with us!
