Not fit for purpose

I sold some yarn on eBay to a buyer in the States. It was posted, airmail, on 17th January *and has only just arrived*. I've heard that due to security issues Royal Mail have been using surface mail for airmail packages. In which case: stop charging for a service you're not providing! I'm thinking of refusing to send items to the States as I can't stand the stress caused by the long delays. I'm a v. conscientious seller, post quickly and like to know items have arrived safely.

In other news, I just half heard a snippet about brown & tawny owls on the radio and immediately thought of Brownies. Must be because yesterday was Thinking Day.
