Parcels, order and arrival times?

Recommended Posts

I have a few separate orders in progress at the moment and today received one of them (all gorgeous scents!!!) However this one was dispatched on 15 January so that's a pretty good delivery time to get all the way over here to the UK.

 

However I'm waiting for an order which Mara dispatched on the 9th January but that hasn't arrived yet.

 

Is it normal for parcels to arrive out of order like this or do you thing the one dispatched on 9th has got lost by the postal service?

The longest I've waited for a package was 3 weeks or 3 and a half... I'm in Europe too, so I know how you feel ;)

It's still too early to say that the first one is lost. There are so many variables in international shipping. Your first package got there pretty fast! Hopefully the other shows up in the next few days.

Not a package, but I sent several cards a few weeks ago to Europe... within days of each other, some I sent in early January.

Some made it to Europe in a week, others sent in early December made it after the ones I sent in January (5 weeks!)... And this happens any time of the year, not just during holiday season.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I just wanted to put my mind at ease that the first one hadn't gone walkabout.

 

I'm off on vacation tomorrow so hopefully they'll be here when I get back. I've had them posted to my work address and my colleagues know I'm expecting them and will put them on my desk.

I've had them take a good two weeks before, perhaps even a bit over that. I'm in the UK. Try not to worry about the random workings of the post!

I've had stuff show up in random order, too. Postal workings are just weird, is the conclusion I came to. I wouldn't worry unless it's not arrived when you get back!
