No. But no post at all so I'm still hopeful. There have been some

postal strikes around London.

I got a stack of mail actually but some parts of outer london have been effected by the strike

It'll come tomorrow or monday it probably has to sit in a post room for a day before it even leaves the hospital

Yes there's probably a troll who collects it from surgical supplies in cupboard-under-the-stairs and trudges it through the gothic labyrinth to some post room in the bowels of St Mary's where they wait for a flight of owls to deliver the magic envelopes.

Did you take any photos of you in your wig (or after emergency hair-cut?).

I got friends to knit me hats. I bought a back-up black wig from Slough and a dark turquoise cosplay wig for under £16 including delivery from Hong Kong!
