The post entitled "Theft of SE1 Mail Continues?" sprang to my mind too. I don't mind walking to get it if I'm sure they're open as they seem to co-incide their holidays with the schools (probably because the majority of their staff are parents). However, not all schools have their mid term during the same week so it can be a bit "hit and miss" and there's not a lot worse than deciding to have pie and mash and finding the cupboard bare. I agree - evening p&m would be nirvana!
