On Tuesday two deliveries arrived within ten minutes of each other.
When the Parcel Force van arrived with the tyres, I had already seen the UPS van down the street and hoped it might contain a little something for me. Sure enough, no sooner than I had opened the first delivery up, the doorbell rang again.
I’ve already told you about the tyres. So what about that other box, I hear you ask.
I mentioned some time ago that our iMac had failed. Well, after a few diagnostics and a visit to the Apple Geniuses at the Milton Keynes store, a dead Logic Board was confirmed. It would have cost too much to make it worth repairing, so after a little procrastination we went ahead and ordered a brand spanking new one. (Okay, okay, so I admit it: I was delighted to hear that the old one was unrepairable.)
I didn’t get the chance to unpack it until the next morning. Amazing to think that I could exercise such incredible self-restraint, eh? No, of course I couldn’t; it was a nasty stomach bug that sent me back to a very early bed, dreaming of getting it set up in our specially-tidied office the next morning. And so I think you can just imagine how I felt the next morning when I unpacked it to find this in the corner of the screen:
And that’s why this tale of two deliveries remains unfinished. The iMac is back in its box, not even plugged in, awaiting collection by a courier.
But the good news is: its replacement has been dispatched and should be with us by Wednesday. Let’s hope this one manages to arrive undamaged.
