Can’t keep shifting the blame …

I don’t know what has happened to our postal service over the past few months. I know coronavirus has a lot to answer for, but twelve months down the line, you can’t keep blaming it for the current issues. We seem to have seen an increase in issues over the past two months.

Back in November, a parcel was delivered to the wrong address and annoyingly the people at that address moved house just a day or so after the parcel had been delivered. Since then two more, smaller parcels have gone astray. Last week three bank statements, all with the same address were delivered to three different addresses. One came to us and the other two went to neighbours at either side of us. The week before, K***’s new bank debit card was delivered to someone in the next street. We even had a letter from the DWP hand delivered by someone in the next village. It is not good.

On Friday, the post did not get delivered until just before 2pm. Now I’m old enough to remember when we used to get a second post, which was usually around mid-day, but that’s not really acceptable, considering how little is actually being delivered by the Royal Mail.

I received a reply back from WordPress support regarding my ‘suggestions’ for the desktop app. I get the impression that it was a standard reply. Basically thanking me for reaching out‘ and for my feed-back‘. I am told that they ‘...can’t say whether or when they’d be implemented, but consider them noted…’ which is better than nothing. I do hope they consider them, as the app could be a great asset.

Youngest son did come home for the weekend on Friday, which was great news. Because right up until his car and support worker pulled up outside the house, I had a very odd feeling that it may not come off. But he was in a happy mood when he got here and S**, his key support worker and friend, said that he was so happy that he could come home and see us. He will go back on Monday sometime and hopefully he will be home again in two weeks. His regular ‘home visit‘ pattern is to come to us every other Friday for three nights, but outbreaks of the virus at his care-home put paid to that again. So as long as there are no outbreaks on his unit and we stay clear, it could be back to normal(ish).

  1. Sounds like your local postal depot is at fault, not the Royal Mail in general.
    I’ve no complaints with ours, I don’t miss the two deliveries per day, our one delivery usually arrives late morning and I don’t mind that either. With one delivery per day it stands to reason that we can’t all have our mail delivered at 08:00 AM.

    I can’t remember what your suggestions were for the WordPress App, but I’m sure they would have user friendly ones so I hope WP takes note. Not that I have any intention of going back to the App. I’m still very happy with the Microsoft blogging template, in fact I’d go so far as to say I love it.

    I also like the way even when I’ve published I can make changes on the template and they are saved on the site. The other day I made a discovery that pressing Home takes me to my blog site home. I’m sure there’ll be lots more I’ve not yet discovered.

    And of course it’s the flexibility that appeals because that’s where the blocks fail miserably.
