Passion can be a terrible burden, Ras!

Did you order ever come? I thought about it because I put in an order from the website, and received an email saying it was 'being held by a UK agency' which makes me think it must have come from Germany rather than a UK warehouse (regular order, not spare parts)

I will be resubmitting my parts order- as two separate orders- next week. But I have had no issues with catalogue orders.

I finally sent a parts order on 25 January, received a request for payment on 31 January and the order was delivered a few days ago  :love: on 3 February, not a bad turnaround time.

 :woohoo: we're back in business, at last!

I limited my request to avoid going over a customs threshold. Although I clearly specified the delivery address, it was delivered to my daughter's address (which I gave them before going on holiday last July), but she brought it round to me, bless her. A couple of items were no longer available (run out in the 10 months since my original order) and three items were not supplied even though I was charged for them - but this happens sometimes and PM usually send them when I point out the error.

Thanks for your kind words everyone. Waiting ages for parts is clearly not on the same plane as the issues some people have to worry about, but thanks for taking an interest!
