One thing consistent about Royal Mail is its inconsitency. It seems to go from the sublime to the cor blimey. My niece who lives in Rugby posted a card to me and the missiz on Friday, second class. It arrived this morning.
Today's postmen said the backlog was mostly parcels.
What I do not understand is why they still have not been delivered, and when they WILL be delivered. It's not like we are receiving a large bundle of mail every day - it's a small bit here and there. But if they are in possession of the rest, why are we not received fat bundles of mail instead of dribs and drabs? This is what I don't get.
Today I received something that was sent 5th Jan, albeit recorded delivery. I am, however, still waiting on items that were sent on 3rd Jan, and something else from 5th Jan.
