Do you have nothing to worry about? Then let the Post Office help you.

Do you have nothing to worry about? Then let the Post Office help you.

For all those people who are not worried about broken rails, delayed trains, the sitting room being 4ft deep in rich alluvial hydrogen dioxide, the loose tiles on the roof, Granny Edith's blown-down aerial, the cat that has not been seen since the fireworks, BSE in the entire stock in the freezer, the closed petrol station and the fact that several hundred litres of unleaded is leaking in the garage, all of you - worry about this.

Have you posted your Christmas cards yet? Because if you have not, you may have to kayak to all the far-flung parts of this sodden nation to deliver them yourself.

The country will be most grateful to the Post Office for this advance warning of possible delays because it reminds us that there are only eight weeks to go until 25 December, and some of us might have been foolish enough to think we had plenty of time to deal with the insurance claims and do the Christmas shopping.
