So the postal service has slowed right down. It's still operational but instead of the last collection being at 4pm, it is now at 1pm. This means that although I will still be packing and posting at the same rate as usual, the packages will be slower to get going because if I drop off my parcels at the post office after 1pm (likely), then those parcels wont go till the next day.
In practice this means that if you have a deadline, you really will have to order about 2 weeks in advance JUST IN CASE.
It's not just collection times that have changed, it's the speed and efficiency of the postal services.
As ever I am self isolated, the post mistress is still dressed as Cleopatra (en bandages), and everything is being wiped and cleaned as if a murder has taken place!
Stay safe everyone!
