    I'm having wills delivered well into the evening, which means there are civil servants on overtime beavering away to clear the backlog. :)

    Can you believes it? I just got the email to say they were in, and it was just a notice to say they couldn't find it and I must have written it wrong! Details were from their own website:headbang:

    In such cases I've read of people complaining, and sometimes getting the will. However, I don't know if the complaints go to the back of the queue or if they manage to bypass it at all.

    I'm still waiting for a will, the first one I ordered during first half of August. Hope they don't tell me now that they can't find it as it's the one I have most been looking forward to.

    It was actually my naughty boy from Yorkshire - his stepdad's will. I hoped that if he had changed his name after his last conviction he might have had a mention, if his guardian was the forgiving type - but all children and stepchildren were named in the will apart from him, so had had either been left out of the estate (very likely) or the judge was right in his summing up and he did go to the gallows. :sceptical:

    I have finally received the last will of the batch which I ordered on the 28th July. I love it when they say "You will have 31 days to download your copy of each will, starting from the first day that you log in to see it." I am tempted to ask why I can't have 5 months....:sceptical:

    I wouldn't mind so much if it had been worth waiting for :rolleyes:
