my REAL wall – October 15, 2009 – Royal Mail strikes cripple my REAL wall, originally uploaded by andytgeezer.
This past month has been horrible for my REAL wall. The Royal Mail have decided to strike over working practices or something like that, and as a result the mail that’s supposed to be arriving from all of you is probably sitting in a mail warehouse somewhere waiting to be delivered.
The strike is made a little more complicated by the fact that it’s not quite centralised too. Instead of the whole country’s postal service agreeing to take a single day off, different postal regions are striking on different days, so I never really know what day I’m supposed to get mail at work or at home.
Over the last week I’ve received absolutely nothing at all.
However, the postmen in Elena’s area seem to be striking on different days and she always gets a kick out of turning up at my house with mail when I haven’t got anything at all.
Today’s REAL wall then, only features new post that was sent to her as it’s the only post that’s actually come in this week, and a slightly older piece from Lorraine Kwan, who kindly pimped 2 of my photos last month.
