I received the second card within a week from the Royal Mail, viz the postman, advising that the item in question for delivery was too large.

As before, one merely goes online and fills in a form for it to be re-delivered.

Presumably this service causes a degree of additional work for them. It's baffling and frustrating at the customers' end.

The reasonable course of action in such instances must surely be to leave larger items with one's neighbour.

One of my neighbours is always at home.

I PURCHASED a new pair of black Oxford shoes today (top). They will serve as my Number Two pair.

I already possess a pair of old Church's Consul Oxfords (above), which were acquired thirty years ago.

I think I purchased them in Harrod's.
