Thanks for sharing, it’s easy to imagine it’d be back to normal after the festive season, but makes sense that there’s still disruption. I’ll maybe go back to sending customers an email when they order to warn items may take longer than normal. Otherwise they tend to start chasing as soon as they get the automatic request for feedback - they seemed to appreciate me warning them in the run up to Christmas and the ones that then got their order quickly were really happy.

I received a Christmas card yesterday which had been posted by a friend on 14th December. Correct address, full postcode, but a little late for Christmas wishes! The postmark was from the day before, so presumably it’s been in the bottom of a sack somewhere - and not Santa’s sack…

I’ve also had delays with my post. One item, before Christmas, took eight days, which is understandable, one a couple of weeks ago took 13 days.Hopefully, things will get better gradually.
