I remembered at the last minute it was my niece’s birthday the next day, so I thought I would catch the last post, but to my dismay I missed it. The postbox said there was a 4pm pick-up at Brent Cross, but my card was already in the box.

The next day, I noticed the box at Brent Cross was taped closed. No wonder my gas and electric use Whistl for all their mail, does the post office want to drive all its customers away?

There is no real information on our postbox about times for collections. The slot at the top of the box is always empty – do they no longer care?

To crown it all, the postman left next door’s mail, which I had to deliver to them. Are they doing a good job?
