By heck . My clockwork stuff is about 60 years old and includes three 0-4-0 locos plus wagons and lots of track, level crossing, points etc. Most of it is in the original boxes, too. I've been assuming 50 for the whole lot 'cos clockwork is dead! Time to educate the grandchildren on being careful with grandad's toys...

Time to re-visit your household insurance and its single items and sets I think. If you get that lot valued you will have a fright.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Twice yesterday couriers called to deliver packages. Twice I headed for the door from a distant part of the house, trying to avoid obstacles on the way (decorating...), when the phone (landline) rang. Twice I grabbed the phone with one hand then the door key (not kept near the door) with the other. Twice, having reached and opened the door, spotted and retrieved the package with the courier already heading off, then closed the door, I answered the phone. In both cases it was a voice text saying something like 'a courier is having difficulty making a delivery to your address'. They must have sent the message as soon as they rang the door bell. In both cases they were not having difficulty, they just couldn't be bothered to wait for me to get to the door. And in both cases there was another voice text a few minutes later saying that a courier had delivered a package to my address.

Which makes me wonder whether there should be a law requiring messages from courier companies to be truthful i.e. 'I can't be bothered to wait for you to open the door so I've left the package on the ground and gone off as quick as I can'. Would anyone support a petition to government??
