    It was actually the Ferrero Rocher that I totally didn't forget about.
    Unless they are delivered by a butler at an ambassador's party, it doesn't count.

    I believe they were, so it does.

    Mine required the use of a bladed instrument to open... the entire thing was coated in a think layer of tape.
    A certain amount of tape is required to hold the close fitting re-used cardboard sleeve on. Instead of using a brand new box that is far too big anyway, we take some old cardboard, cut it to size and wrap it around for protection - does take a decent amount of tape to keep it secure though.

    The "mysterious things" are nearly ready - just waiting for them to arrive at VeryPC spaceport before we aeroblast them to all the unfortunates who had to put up with that pesky demand from the Royal Mail because of my shoddy postal pricing abilities.

    Ahhh really??

    Darn - i bought those only a month ago too! I didn't think it would be necessary to check the sell by date on a box of toffees.

    Let me have a rummage and see what else I've got.

    Hi Al,


    Yes you would think that they would have been a reasonable date on them.
    I looked and thought January 3rd 2014 got plenty of time ... Oh wait its 2014 !!


    I appreciate you having a look around to see what you have but don't worry if you are literally clutching at straws, the videos alone kept me entertained over my lunch breaks

    Cheers for the Mug / 3D ceramic Jigsaw! Luckily the heavy handed Royal Mail oaf didn't damage the chocolate goodies inside.

    Appreciate the gesture.
