OK it is official I am stupid…

Twice!!! Not only did I purchase the most expensive set of cookbooks ever by buying Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking (stupid #1). I then was too eager / greedy to wait for it in the UK so I purchased it at Amazon.com in the USA and had it shipped to unknown location, deep in the southern states of America (my mom’s house). Where I thought she could pop it on a plane and forward it on to me the UK (stupid #2).

Here are the physical characteristics of this order:
Product Dimensions: 18.4 x 15.4 x 14.6 inches
Shipping Weight: 46.1 pounds

Basically it is a block of wood that is a foot and half square and weighs almost 50lbs. Sorry Mom…

I am now trying to figure out how to get this block of wood from my mom’s to the UK, looks like it will take another couple of weeks until I can start reading – let alone reviewing this in any way.

    OK the first hurdle is done, the block of wood is my mom’s house. Now we need to get it from from the south of America to the UK without costing an arm and a leg. Mom to investigate tomorrow, wow this more work than I anticipated 3 months ago….

    You would have your 75-year old mother do your portage and world-wide logistics?!?!
