... it wouldn't cost that for a padded envelope, 2nd class post on the package and £1 of someone's time to stick my address on the envelope.
Ahh, but you've forgotten to factor in the time to walk to the post office, find it's closed because they're working reduced hours, walk back to the office, walk down the next morning, wait in the queue for an hour (or two) then there's the time taken to catch up on the local news with Mrs Miggens behind the counter who you haven't seen for oooooh at least 36 hours and then you've got to walk back to the office and after all that hard work you really need a cup of tea which means you have to pop* out to the corner shop for some milk because you've run out....  it all costs you know.  :)

*FCVO of "pop" allowing for new queueing** arrangements.

**Reminds me of old Soviet-era Polish joke.
What's 22 yards long and eats cabbage?  A meat queue.

Nope.  The clouds are there but the water's staying up.  The farmers must feel like Jean de Florette.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Water isn't staying up any more. It's cold, too.
