Get your luverly Melnet badges
« on: August 17, 2018, 12:10:38 PM »

Collected badges this morning.

Q jumped the gun on sending in his order so he is the guinea pig. His have been sent. Stamp was 2nd L. Post Master said that was more than fine.

I have requests from Quentin, AnnC, Winston, Robin, Jimmy, Sue, Ebor, Vince, John,  Penn, Nigel, Martin, Nick CB.
Send me your SAE anytime, as in my PM. 40p each.
If I have missed anyone, please PM me.
I have 12 of the 50 left. If anyone else wants in please PM me.

I made sure there was enough postage to ensure it safely cross the international boundary  ;D
Will let you know when they arrive, and thanks again Greg for doing this.

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

I've just returned from sending my money and envelope off. I needed to put a 79p 2nd class stamp on each. Perhaps because I used (pre-used, you know me!) padded envelopes, which wouldn't fit through the narrower of the gaps on his gauge?

Blimey, is 2nd class post in the UK really 79p?  1st class airmail from Cyprus to UK is 67 (euro) cents.........

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

I think was for padded envelopes and things. I expected something a bit more prosaic.

I decided to use padded envelopes to ensure our luverly brand spanking new badges got safely to me.
If anyone got a glimpse of their shiny loveliness I know they wouldn't be able to resist....

Sent mine. Trust me to use old, non standard envelopes - cost extra and me a Yorkshireman...could have put the extra pennies towards my next instrument ! And I splashed out on first-class post...

"I splashed out on first-class post..."

Now, that was rash! Especially when the 2nd class probably will get there beforehand.

Thank you. I'll see them when I get back from Whitby, those and my newly acquired Liliput! (I just had to find out what all the fuss is about the little bleeders)
