    I'm fairly certain you're right.... I don't think there are collections from post boxes on Sunday, so it'll be Tuesday at the earliest for delivery.

    Some main post/sorting offices do a 6pm Sunday collection, and if you have a late delivery Monday morning it is possible for it to arrive the next day.

    However standard postal delivery usually get collected from the postbox on Monday morning and will usually arrive the next day.

    There are some Sunday collections so it depends where she posted it. It should give a collection time at the post office.

    The post wont even move till Monday morning.

    Most little street boxes will not collect until the postman empties them on Monday morning, but the sorting offices (main post offices) have collection boxes outside them, these are emptied on Sunday evening, and can be delivered monday morning

    ah, the Royal Mail stopped the Sunday collection in October, just read it there.

    Thanks everyone - told her :-)

    Yep, Sunday collections were ceased a while back.

    LOL, anyone else care to jump in and state the obvious??

    :roll: Fat Chance. :roll:

    If she actually post in main sorting office before 6/7pm tonight theres a very slim chance it may arrive
