Mine was exactly the same until I got an email last night from DPD saying it was expected for delivery today and then QVC updated on my account this morning. I did find it quite strange that it doesn't state the expected delivery date when you pay so I was expecting it to maybe take a while but Friday to Monday for delivery I don't think is too bad.
I'm doing okay, first attempt I ended up with more of a bouncy blow dry using the largest barrels. I think I was using sections that were too big and I didn't let the curls set long enough. I used the smaller barrel today and smaller sections then pinned them for an hour and I've got lovely bouncy curls now. The bouncy blow I got yesterday lasted overnight too, I've got long thin hair that doesn't hold a curl very well so my initial thought is that I'm impressed .
