China ain't the place to be ordering from if you're in a hurry

With the recent debacle, all of my packages arrived eventually, yeah they took longer than the norm but they got here. The only pain in the ass was a couple got returned & had to be resent & all that

I've just made 3 small orders, shipped 3 different way, e-package, Sing Post, Free post so lets see the craic

Before the recent probs, for me typically 7 days to the UK for e-packet. Don't seem that long ago that most orders took best part of a month to arrive. So for me, FT have upped their game with carriers in the last few years.

Tracking has always been hit and miss. Many a time fogging the room out with my latest gear even though tracking says it is still in China.

Latest order shipped 9/7,e-packet. FT split my order as one item out of stock, was available when I placed the order. Happens sometimes with FT.

No big deal, this is the FT we all love and moan about.
