Colonissimo seem to be going flat out to redeem themselves after the 'orrible lags of lockdown.  My last coffee order arrived the day after they picked it up in Bordeaux: usually it takes around 3 or four days.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

That's Royal Mail's new EcoPost. Items are carried by a small barefoot boy herding unruly goats in the general direction of the recipient, eating only porridge (for the boy) and whatever they want (for the goats).  Large bodies of water present an obvious difficulty, as do wolves.

There is a ferry across the large body of water, but the ferry operator also has to transport a mountain of cabbages.  The small barefoot boy cannot leave the cabbages in the care of the goats, nor the goats in the care of the wolves.  And because the ferry operator was appointed by Chris Grayling, there is no boat.

Q1. Devise a strategy that will allow the small barefoot boy, the goats and quixoticgeek's parcel to cross the large body of water.  Your budget is £14 million.  Go!

8 days ago I posted a birthday card first class in Forest Hill.
It reached its destination in Rotherhithe today.
Googlemaps tell me it's a distance of 5.5 miles and that I could walk it in under 2 hrs.
The recipient's birthday was last Friday.
How we laughed.

TBF - I'm not having a pop at RM here. I think they've done admirable work over the past 4 months.

It's D's birthday today.
He received a card from his Dad yesterday and from his brother today.

Which is fine and just as expected, knowing the senders' personalities and habits.
