That looks like a lot of fun ...  ok ... and not too far for you to go!

That black dog looks a big'un compared to the other two! surprised

Is that the breed of the dog - Alaskan Malamute? I've not heard of it before.

Yes we had Malamuts and Siberians. The Malamuts were really useful...

 

... to cuddle as it was damn cold smile

Product Name Code Net Price Qty Qty * Net Price
Bulb of smoked garlic (zero sales tax rated product) 15538 £1.75    3 £5.25
Net Total £5.25    
Shipping charge to zone ' UK Mainland - £7.50 excl Highlands of Scotland' £7.50    
Sales Tax (VAT @ 20%) £0.00    
      TOTAL: £12.75  

 

Well what can I say but BL*****G H**L... surprised

 

Definitely need to work out a price devil

 

However that price is a rip off thumbs_down£7.50 for P&P, no way.

 

After chatting to a few people in the know I think I'll be looking at around half that price all-in.

 

Comments????

wave  Also notice, Simon, I would not be able to receive them as I am classed as Highlands and Islands.  I often don't get goods or I have to pay more for delivery and £7.50 is a lot to start with.  cry

Barking mad.

 

The package I sent to you for Easter cost no more or no less than any  other destination. I do not understand it

Just got a note from Val, she got my Easter card 4 days after I sent it.

eeek

4 days?

I can't get a letter across the U.S. in that kind of time, how'd it get to the U.K. in 4 days?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

To be fair to the smokery, they do say that if you want a small order to call them and they will quote a lower price for postage.

I'll try that again!

Michelle, it can be similar here too - but my niece sends post from Florida, and hers also arrive within 4 days. I guess it gets put on a plane, and hey presto, it's arrived!

Let me know the result in reverse!! whistle

Oooohhhh..

 

I have just received a lovely and lovingly home crafted Easter Card. 

It even has its own sweet little chick tucked inside the egg

 

Thankyou Brightspark.

Isn't that lovely?  Well done BS.  My recipient won't be getting a hand made card I'm afraid...

I'll try that again!
