It only seems like yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas and it seems incredible that it is only a matter of weeks until it is here again. However, with so much going on, we can quickly forget to make any allowance for one of the most unpredictable elements of Christmas – the weather!
In the last two years alone, many of us have experienced snow and ice on an unprecedented scale. I thought it a good time, therefore, to politely suggest that you don’t leave it until the last moment to make those online orders!
Internet businesses invariably do their best to ensure that your gifts are sent as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, in recent years the severe winter weather conditions have meant many people were left disappointed, having not received their parcels in time. In many cases, this was through no fault of the delivery company – heavy snow and thick ice made roads treacherous with many routes impassable for some time.
I am pleased to say that to date, none of the Seres’ parcels has arrived late, but with the extraordinary weather conditions that many of us have experienced so far this year, don’t wait until the last moment to place your orders – do it early and then relax!
