Much excitement. A parcel arrived that started its journey by Royal Mail in London.
Look, it is from St James's Palace, no less. I would have written St James' Palace. I would probably be wrong. It is the Queen's English.
It is a tea caddy made to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It comes with tea bags of a certain blend. I bought it as a gift for a Royalist friend, and when ordering I looked at our miserable old plastic container that contains tea bags and thought, what the heck. I will get one for us too. As I have discovered in the past, the postage costs almost as much as what you are buying.
Silly me. I was thinking like we are dollar for dollar with the US, we are pound for a dollar with the UK. No, pounds cost.
