December 8th has snuck up on me. In my head it’s October. Christmas cards to write, trees to buy, cheer to have and just seven days until December 15th – Royal Mail’s last posting date for standard parcels. Suddenly I find myself in a world where this matters. I’m part of Father Christmas’s festive machinery. Trudging across the snow-locked pavements to our post office, I could almost see elves.
