Sorry for the incredibly boring subject. Has anyone else not received any post since Xmas? I'm an Edge subscriber and it's not arrived yet. I'm so bored.

Wish my image sig would work

In the whole of December I had post the grand total of twice. And a parcel has gone missing. I rang them and got nothing but sass and bullshit.

I just went to the future publishing website and tried to claim a missed issue but it's sold out. Bastards!

I'm south-west. A birthday card I ordered for my sister on December 20th arrived like the 29th or something but I have been getting post constantly once the bank holidays stopped.

Apart from one thing I ordered that took over two weeks to arrive (and when it did arrive, they had sent me the wrong item), everything else has been fine.

We had christmas cards arrive from all over the place pretty promptly (including abroad) apart from one sent from London, which never turned up

@Blue Eyes any post whatsoever? Or just this issue of Edge?

In Sussex our post has been ticking over regular as clockwork.

I think there might have been one letter but I found it all scrunched up in the letterbox and have no idea how long it's been there.

I've not had any issues at all (Greater Glasgow area) over Christmas/New Year, but yesterday and today have been nothing. Our (new build) estate is basically a massive ice rink at the moment so I can understand it.

Bit annoying though as I'm expecting a few things.

I've not had any issues, been getting post fairly regularly including my replacement credit card for one about to expire.

Have had issues in Bristol, there's Christmas cards which still haven't arrived and payslips which take have been taking two weeks to get here.

I spoke to one of the postmen a while ago and he said there had been positive cases at the delivery office so people were self-isolating and some streets just get forgotten about for ages.

The item I ordered that took two weeks to arrive was sent from Bristol, and other people who ordered from the same place around the same time also had there items take ages to arrive. It seems like Bristol is the problem.

Thanks guys. Hopefully it's just a delay but looks like I've missed my precious issue of Edge. Waaah why always me etc.

It's been hit and miss here, some items arrive quickly, others take ages and some days it's as if there isn't even any deliveries going on.

I sent a christmas card to northern ireland too using a 1st class stamp, and it took 6 days to get there.
