Hats Off To Royal Mail...

The postman delivered a late Christmas card the other day.
It was from some friends that live just two miles away.
It had a second class stamp on it and it has been all round the country, covering more miles than I do in a year!...

Being a bit absent minded she only put the first line of our address on the card, no Doncaster, or postcode and the Royal Mail (Bless them) sent it to every address in the country that matched the first line of our address until it arrived here at the correct one...Absolutely Brilliant..... Well done and thank you Royal Mail.

After working as a postman myself, I have seen first hand the trouble that the lads and lasses in the delivery office will go to, to make sure that everything gets delivered to the correct address however ineligible the writing on the envelope is....

I think our posties are great - out in all weathers - and looking after us as well - mine knocked at the door yesterday - although there was no post for me - to make sure I was OK because he noticed I hadn't taken the milk in!

Royal Mail have just announced there will be 'hold ups' to post deliveries due to staff absences caused by illness and isolating.They will try to make sure vaccination notifications are delivered.

Re: Hats Off To Royal Mail...

My postman is a nice obliging man. Is Ďpostieí a northern word as l have never heard it said around here.

I think a postmanís job is enviable in the summer when itís lovely and sunny but maybe not so much in the winter or when itís cold/bad weather.
