Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dry Bones

Odi sent us some papers to sign. We sent them back a week ago and they still haven't arrived. She sent us duplicates- registered mail- and we haven't received them.

Ailz rang our local Post Office to ask if they knew what was going on and they told her that, thanks to CV19, the Liverpool sorting office is operating with a skeleton staff.

As it turns out, we found the business we were trying to transact can be done equally well online.

(I love that phrase "skeleton staff"- and the way it unfailingly conjures up images appropriate to the Halloween season.)
