    Hi folks.


    I have just started with the panel and just posted my first cube today. Has anyone been asked by the post office to put a return address on the the box? I was today, so just wondered if I should put the pre printed return lable on.

    Not a parcel but I actually put the full address on the back of an envelope. That means if undeliverable it should get back to you fairly quickly from the local delivery office.

    My envelope was instead sent to Belfast (I think that's the place where orphan items are sent if there isn't a return address and where they then open the thing to see if there is more information).

    So a few weeks later I receive the letter (which was to let my late husband's brother know of his death) and so it used the first name used to sign the letter rather than the initial and surname as provided on the back of the envelope they returned and the covering note included a request that in the future I put a return address on the envelope.

    Sorry - that's a moan about RM not about this survey.

    Put a return address and it gets returned.
    I expect in the near future such items will be destroyed given the labour intensive nature of running the NRC.

    I was asked if I wanted to put a return address on one a few days ago and I just said no. Just told them it was nothing valuable so I woudnt bother, that's the first time I have ever been asked.

    Presumably the moan is that it wasn't simply returned to the address on the back but sent to Belfast, opened, read (unnecessarily) and then returned.

    Obviously you did not read what I had written.

    There was a return address on the outside of the item which should have led to it being returned to me without the delay in sending it to Belfast - but RM chose not to see it and actually took longer to return it to me and, at the same time, insult me by saying I should put a return address on in the future.

    And, of course, it was a very personal letter.

    got my new diary, not the quality it has been in the past. Began writing in it, but it irritated me so much (yellow pages, very thin paper) I decided I didnt need 12 months aggravation, so bought myself a new one in The Works for £1.
    Got my Jan stamps but no Christmas stamps as in previous years.

    Is anyone else seeing zero stars for data freshness this week?

    I had five stars at the end of last week, and noticed today that they've all disappeared. I've been entering items in the same way as usual.

    TIA!
