Thank You Mr Postman

Hi All,
My faith and admiration for our Postal Service has been well and truly restored.
I usually get one of our customers to drop any post that I have in the pillar box right outside his office, but since the flood I have not been sure if it will be collected from there so I have been asking my colleague who has a post box right near her house.
So far so good, until I couldn't find a card that i had ready to be hand delivered.
I had left some letters with Jeanette but she was insistent that she had only taken letters with addresses and stamps on them.
I have hunted high and low, both at home and at work, and had resigned myself to having to deliver something else until I got home from work today.
There waiting for me was a large envelope containing my missing card, and a message on the back to say that it was found in a post box in Godstone.
You may not find this particularly surprising except when I tell you that the card had nothing more than Chris written on the envelope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I always put return address labels on my cards. It doesn't take a moment to do and it has paid off on several occasions, not least of which is now.
So, Thank You Mr Postman, or should I call you Mr Holmes??
I can only assume that they looked inside my card, which is also signed on the back, and by a process of elimination they tracked it back to me.
However they managed it I am very impressed and grateful.
So remember Girls, be proud of your work and sign it. And don't forget to add a return address to your post, it makes all the difference in the world.

  1. Glad you got your card back Kim and yes they do do good work at times :D

  2. I love my postman, we always make sure to look after him, and he always looks after us in return: he's found missing parcels so many times for us, and when he leaves a delivery slip to say something needed signing for when we weren't there, he'll always leave a little message saying he'll bring it back out tomorrow, saves a lot of hassle so we don't have to go into the sorting office :) glad you got sorted! :D


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, it is always greatly appreciated. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible if you have a query
