You've Got Mail

With online shopping becoming a big part of our everyday lives it is safe to say that we all rely on courier services delivering our parcels to us. I am no exception to this rule, living in a small riverside town that could quite easily be mistaken as a ghost town these days, we seem to have more empty shop windows and pound shops than any other town on the globe!

These days shopping online is the only way I can ensure that I can find exactly what I am looking for, and instead of heading to the high street to watch the tumble weed blow, I take to the internet.

I receive parcels on a very regular basis and more often than not I provide my parents address as there is usually always someone there to take receipt of them for me, or to have them left securely hidden away in our designated hiding place!

Parcelforce seem to visit us regularly, in fact our local delivery driver refers to me as ‘the pram lady’ as apparently I have more pushchairs than the average Mummy would. I guess I must be in receipt of a fair few parcels for this distinguished name to have been awarded to me! In fact as soon as a delivery van pulls up onto my Mother’s drive I have often heard her mutter ‘Oh not another parcel!’ like she is already mentally signing her signature on their digital signing machine!

Now being the impatient lady I am, I do like to know where my packages are and when I can expect them to arrive with me. This was especially the case when I was pregnant with Leo and ordering all of the things that we were going to need. I ordered everything online through Kiddicare and Mothercare, and with the provided tracking number I was able to see the process that took place on the run up to delivery.

The same can be said if you are the one sending a parcel, you still want to be able to check in from time to time to see if it has made its way to the intended destination.

Being able to track your package is really reassuring and if you are impatient like me or just wanting to know that the item you sent is moving along as it should. Tracking your parcel gives you an idea of when to expect delivery and reassures you that everything is being taken care of.
