I agree about Mouser - very quick (a few working days typically) given that they're shipping from the USA.

But I'm surprised about your Farnell experience, especially given that we only live a few miles apart. I make a few orders a month and if I get the order in before about 18:00 I can't remember the last time it wasn't in my hand 20-22 hours later. They went through a phase a year or two back where (physically) very small orders were sometimes sent Royal Mail 1st Class. That often took 2 days and sometimes more. But it's been a while since I've had anything from them that didn't come via UPS.
