I had the most wonderful surprise last week. I was happily tapping away at the keyboard, finishing an article for instant posting, when my doorbell rang. A long shrill squeal piercing the hitherto silence. The postman proferred a long pink box that quite clearly announced I’d been sent flowers by post. This was so exciting – however the box was so well wrapped that it did take me most of a morning to undo all the various staes. The idea is that these boxes aer compact in deptch and width so should fit through a standard letterbox. Wouldn’t goe through mine but then . . . The actual flowers are too incredible to be true. Admittedly the blooms being indiidually wrapped in sleeves and layers of special breathable tissue does look offputting at first. However a little note pups up saying Shhhs, your flowers are sleeping – please be quiet and wake them gently! Full instructions come in a dear little 6 page booklet – with just as many hints for after care. This is a truly awe pnspiring project. If only every mail orer product came with that much care an attention – Britain could be leaders, the world over!
