Back in mid-December 2015 I was sent some very, very hard to find crystals from the USA. They were the last I could find anywhere. And they went to Canada….so Canada sent them back to the USA, bearing in mind that they were supposed to come to the UK. They bounced in and out of a depot in Chicago, and then….nothing! Despite being chased up several times by the sender, the USPS could do nothing to help, so it seemed that they had gone AWOL, and we gave up on them.
Then, completely out of the blue, they were delivered through my letter box last week, a mere 4 and a half months after posting!! I have no idea where the package has been but someone, somewhere, managed to get it on the right plane 🙂 I was totally amazed to receive the crystals after all this time, but it does go to show that there is always a chance of a good outcome, even when things seem to have gone irretrievably wrong.
