Grrr… some things just don’t go the way you want them to. As many of you know, I celebrated my 65th birthday a few weeks ago and one of my presents was being mailed from the States. I had been warned that it would arrive later. I heard this week that the present had arrived and that Canada Post had returned it after a few days because I hadn’t come to pick it up. Why? I didn’t know it had arrived! They had put the notification tag (that was meant to go on my door) in my community mail box. We do not have mail delivered to our door here, it goes into a central mailbox on the street and you have to go and collect your mail.
In this comedy of errors, the situation got worse because I don’t clear the mailbox. My tenant does because the majority of the mail is for her.
As life has moments of pure insanity, the very week that the notifications arrived my tenant had both her son and his fiancee end up in hospital for two unrelated issues. She was obviously not keeping to any routines that week and the mail was not collected. And that is how I ended up losing a birthday present without even trying!
