When NZ Post actively promote their 'parcel redirect' service,..

 

..I go to use it, all seems to work OK, (a couple of days go by) I receive notification that my parcel is ready to collect from the local bookstore which happens to be NZ Post's agent,....

 

..I then go to collect it and the grumpy old bag serving me tells me how lucky I am that she has already scanned it otherwise I would have had to come back the next day, and points to some unofficial locally printed sign that says that is their (the store's, I guess) policy.

I have a special capers spoon in the drawer for dealing with this.

 

One of those plastic takeaway spoons that come with KFC.

Y'know, I often think I'm full of smart ideas (other people think I'm full of something else) but I didn't think if that. Capital idea. Which is good because I don't like KFC.

I suggested that as we move everything into plastic containers in the pantry, makes them easier to find, easier to get stuff, you know when your are running out,  and most importantly gives a good reason to

 

have a label machine.

When your not hungry on your break at work then you are 10 minutes later.
When your thirsty at work but an email went around saying the tap water is contaminated.

Capers are delicious. I have a set of cuttlery used when Bella was a toddler, fork is perfect size to get capers and drain those when getting out of the tall jars.

Still annoying that they come in the tall jars.

 

If there were two brands of Caper on the supermarket shelf, one in the annoying tall jar, and another in a short squat jar (but same volume and similar price), I'd buy the short squat every time.

correction to my post, I just checked our pantry and the Capers are in what looks like some kind of sealing jar similar to what my mother did preserves in. They have been decanted into it and suitably labelled. The jar has about a 10cm opening.
