Well the countdown to Christmas continues (it’s almost here!) and, while for some, like me, that’s a cause for joy, for many of you out there it’s probably a reason to start gnashing your teeth and ripping your hair out!
Yes, as lucrative as it can be for someone who does courier work (and from what I’ve heard, it is), the Christmas season can also be tremendously stressful – what with the longer working hours, increased pressure and so on. If you have anything less than nerves of steel you may find yourself fit to burst – which is perfectly normal. After all, we are all only human…

Until then, though…ta-ra!
