The missing bank holiday mail and parcels caught up with us today. A full van and heavy bags. Fortunately a perfect delivery day, gently sunny and not too hot.

Finally a lighter and cooler day’s delivering. A day begun by the now regular spider obstacle course at 30 Kenneth Mckee Plain. I ducked under the web this morning, photographing the resident spider as I passed. Autumn feels on it’s way.

A dramatic moment watching a MontJack Deer being hit by a car in Christchurch Road. The deer seemed to roll and bounce and I thought it would be seriously injured but it jumped back up and ran off into the bushes. Another witness walked past, hand in front of her mouth in horror.

Out of respect for the Queen the CWU cancelled our strike day late yesterday. So today was an unexpected day at work.

A memorable day, customers very chatty, often surprised to see us and sharing how sad they were that the Queen has died. A customer in Launceston terrace was dead heading his roses to cheer himself up.

A hectic and sweaty morning sorting in the delivery office. A seemingly endless quantity of flats to sort. Double mail on most of the walk to set in, bags Christmas heavy. Sultry sweaty day delivering, overnight rain left edges damp. More traffic again as new term gets more fully in swing with school term starting. Work an extra 1.5 hours to get all the mail delivered.
