    I have just received a large padded envelope measuring 250mm x 330mm from courier.
    I had to sign for it.
    Guess what was in it?

    Small prize for best guess.
    (Bear in mind it is my birthday, and I've been doing some serious internet shopping this week)

    Well, I ordered something online a few months back and got a similar envelope I had to sign for - it contained a teensy slip of paper telling me my item would be delivered as soon as they had it in stock.

    Hopefully yours at least had something in it! CD maybe?

    Yes, there was something in it...but...
  10. Was it a Kindle?
  11. ......a gift card/token?

    I once had to make an annoying journey through traffic when I was already very busy to collect a parcel from the Sorting Office. It turned out to be a cardboard box full of glossy photos advertising cars. I posted it back to the dealer with the photos torn up inside. I was NOT happy.
    Was it something like this?
  13. Is giraffe coming back to tell us?
    I want to know!!

    Was it a pack of padded envelopes - to send all those presents you bought on your 'serious internet shopping'?
    Otherwise I gues something very small in the jewellery line wrapped up and up and up, so it wouldn't get lost in the post?
  15. Your free (unwanted) gift when you ordered something you did want but is not going to be delivered.
    Or possibly my wnter pansy plugs which I ordered months ago.
  16. I signed for a similar package last week - it was an Amazon voucher

    The reference to birthday and internet shopping was a red herring.

    It was......

    a little replacement SIM card!
    I nearly missed it down in the corner of the big bubblewrap envelope.

    Look's like I'll have to keep the prize myself then, since no one guessed.
    Better put the kettle on [​IMG]
