Royal Mail

I had a bit of a rant on Twitter (@mirandasmurmurs) yesterday that I had had to pay 46 p for a First Class Stamp. It was for my Mother's Day card (which is this Sunday in the UK for anyone who has forgotten!)

I posted it last night (gave it to a postman doing his final collections at 5 pm) in Covent Garden. And guess what? I spoke to my mum earlier this evening and the card arrived at home this morning. I couldn't believe it. The card travelled 70 miles over night (London to Suffolk) and had more than exceeded my hope of it arriving in time for Mother's day.

Very impressive service, Royal Mail. If only you were that efficient all the time!

  1. That's how first class always used to work, that's what the 'overnight mail train' was for! Sadly these days they can't seem to manage it.
