    I've had two in one day before. One in the morning and one in the afternoon - they both went in the morning as the post office is a mile away from my house.

    Two on different days of the same week is taking the mickey - I think I would have saved one until the following week.

    I seem to have finished but no Presentation Pack yet. I'll give them a couple of days then e-mail.

    Now here's a new thought that struck me...

    Yesterday I queued up to send a cube with an APL. Had I been at a PO with self-serve machines, I could have used that to speed up the process - but then it would have arrived with a Post & Go label instead of the big square one. Still valid and presumably Royal Mail treat it the same but would it be recognised by the recipient as different or logged as APL? Would TNS care?

    My Post Office has ‘meeters and greeters’ who encourage customers to use the self-service machines instead of queuing for counter service – is this ok?
    Yes – you can use the self-service machine. We’d prefer you if possible to hand the item over the counter, but it’s important that you don’t make yourself conspicuous to Post Office staff and refusing to accept assistance intended to save you time might arouse suspicion.
    So TNS are OK with this but perhaps it does need to be mentioned on the new version of the website

    I had two cubes to post on different days this week but no signed for letter yet. I seem to be getting busier, five things to post this week and I think I received six. I did not accept but I was asked to do the correctly delivered survey for a month instead of two weeks. this time.

    That's the position I was in mid-January... 4 week warning and then the packs just stopped. I e-mailed the helpline and got no answer; then phoned this week. After explaining I hadn't had a final pack - they agreed to send it out again. Some people upthread have got theirs so it must be an intermittent problem (or perhaps even one individual pack stuffer getting mixed up).

    I got my missing Presentation Pack Not GoT as hoped but Star Wars - Aliens and Droids isn't bad. Adding that to the Ladybird Books Presentation Pack I won last month and the ordinary reds still in hand, I don't need to buy any stamps until at least Easter.
