    I have a pile of boxes loaded up with string. Seems that this batch of postal boxes is not as durable as the previous one, so I've reinforced the box so now it is about 60% scotch magic tape by mass...

    My attempts to get neat coils of cord into the boxes was an epic fail, and I apologise profusely for the significantly more tangled cord than intended.

    One of the batches of 50m came out at 49.4m, so I stuck an extra bit that was about 5' long in that box. Unfortunately I can't remember which of the 50M lengths it was, but I hope it won't be an issue for who ever gets that box.

    I will goto the post office in the morning to get this lot in the post to you all. Just a night of worrying if they will fit through the large letter slot...

    Will update on yellow as and when I find the info.

    Thanks

    Julia

    Not yet. If you want to laise with Paul directly that would be best for me. As it stands I have the box sat here ready to go with Paul's address on it. I can put it to one side, and await instruction if you want.

    Failing that, Another group buy will happen as soon as the yellow has gone in the post.

    Fear not, another group buy will be imminent. I have your name in my notes, I will let you know as soon as it happens so you can be included.

    Worst case, you cause me to walk to the postoffice twice. I'm over weight and need the exercise. It is therefore not an issue if I have to walk there twice.

    Talk it through with Paul, let me know what you both agree.

    All the black has gone in the post today. I bumped them all up to first class. Please let me know when the packages arrive.

    Apologies for the tangle some of the cord may be in.

    Mine arrived today, nicely coiled. I instantly turned it into a large knot. I have a lot to learn about cordage. But thanks!

    Just had a mail from the manufacturer, they are predicting despatch on Friday afternoon or Monday Morning, so should have the yellow early next week, will turn it round and get it to you all asap after that.

    Thank you all for your patience.
