Received an email from DHL UK about wanting more details as can't find address for delivery.

Checked with DHL with tracking number on email and can not be found.

Had a treat yesterday as finally got zoom to work for PEEMS members workshop online meeting.

Am not that good with the PC at times mine is like its user well past the sell by date.

A few issues with microphone but was great to see and speak to some members again it's been a long time since my last physical club meeting.

Received this today from North Yorkshire Police it's too large to put on the forum so just this bit.

I had two from DPD today, the URL looked bona fide, claiming two failed deliveries, and a small fee for a third one. However, I have no outstanding orders at the moment, and furthermore at least one person has been in the house for some weeks. They looked worryingly plausible.
