Hooray! The UPS man found me at home today so we finally got the paperwork for our freight, which means we're much clearer about where the freight is right now and when we're likely to receive it.
Presently it's wending its merry way South aboard the MSC Sophie somewhere off the coast of Portugal. Thankfully it is sailing along the West coast of Africa so piracy should not been too much of a concern as long as it doesn't get too close to Benin! The MSC Sophie is due to dock in Cape Town on the 30th of November so hopefully we'll have the consignment by the end of the first week of December or beginning of the second week which will tie in nicely with moving to our new house.
