Oh they will.. they will. DHL only deliver on weekends if you pay for saturday delivery, and aren't supposed to deliver sunday at all.
However, with that said... Fizz DID arrive on a sunday, which was absolutely bizarre.
You might get lucky but i'd be surprised.

What usually happens is it travels overnight to the nearest depot to you, then sits there till the next delivery slot (the following morning on weekdays, monday on weekends).
Mine always pops to heathrow depot which is LITERALLY less than 2 miles away, it's torture. I could freaking bike there and back man. 

But yeah, most likely Monday. But you could get lucky.

The day has finally come! Evelynn should arrive today! Sooooo excited! Even more so that they're delivering it to a InPost locker that's a 5 minute walk from my house (didn't even know we had one) so no need to worry about missing her! Can't wait to get customising!

Not sure, haven't had delivery notification yet but she's coming from the delivery office in Bristol so idk! But the InPost locker is 24 hrs anyway so whenever she arrives I'll go grab her!

Arghhh!   I can just imagine how you feel!   Evil or Very Mad

I can't wait for my boy to arrive, but no idea when that will be yet even though he was one of the already made ones.

My Rebecca arrived just a little while ago though...

Aww man, come ON DHL!

Read, I found my MFY took about 48 hours to dispatch.. for some reason. Maybe they like to hide.

Well, I think she's left Brizzle, I dunno the shipping notifications are odd. It says "out for delivery" and "scheduled for delivery as agreed" I do hope that means she's left cus that was 2 hours ago T_T URGH CUMMONNNNNNN. 

All I need to ensure I do though is not go the whole hog on her face up and rush out of excitement haahaha

Ooo yes, out for delivery means she got on a truck! They deliver up to about 6 I think, but fingers crossed she'll be with you when you finish work

I've finished work and I'm sat waiting.  I messaged them on Twitter though and they're saying she'll be delivered tomorrow?!? What the Geranium?

They're looking into it for me, I've told them I "need" it by today.

I almost did.  I rang them up and apparently she didn't get to the delivery office in Newport until 2:25pm and thus was too late.  Then I asked if she's still going to the InPost box and they spewed some garbage about how because I chose to get it delivered to the box (which is a 5 minute walk from my house) that's what delayed her! Wtf! Absolute rubbish! And how could that possibly delay her when the box is in the same postcode as me?! I'm so annoyed right now.  I'm gonna try and put a claim in with DHL once she arrives and get my postage back! Absolute pee take

Hah good on ya! ridiculous. They've been pretty good when i've called them, but i'm grumpy and I think I scare customer service people. I hope she arrives nice and early tomorrow, the brat.

Ha, indeed! I guess I've never noticed that the rerouting takes any extra time because I've never rerouted a Makie before she has arrived in Chicago. I've done that only after my girl has failed to be delivered.

Hang in there, you'll get her soon!

Had a feeling something was up so I rang DHL randomly, apparently the delivery depot had no record of the request to send my package to the InPost locker despite it being them that text me saying that it could be delivered there.  What is wrong with these people?! Luckily the adviser says that she's told them now and they've noted it, however I'm not holding out too much hope they'll get it right.

Well she arrived earlier at the InPost locker but the tracking still says with delivery courier so god knows.  Either way I'll be finding out now as I'm on my way there!
