Varies - it has been known for a parcel from weenotions to take 5 days to arrive - despite being 1st class!
Parcels from York (my parents) are usually quite good though so variable... Postie arrives around 10.30-11ish usually but sometimes later - varies SOOOOOOOOOO much!

Mine depends on the postie if its our usual he's great, the other one is very very poor grrrr our Holdens Landing coop order says on its tracking from the USA they tried to deliver to me on Saturday but they didnt as i watched the postie putting letters through our door, no knock, no card just nothing im really cross about it as he delivers my post to other people or local post offices if he carnt be bothered and i have to ring around to find stuff :-(

ours really varies. sometimes it arrives at 8.30 am, and the stuff is all posted from 1 or 2 days earlier, and then other times either nothing is delivered...ayt all.
usually we have a delivery around 12ish. and my usual postman is friendly and does ring on the bell if he has a parecl.
if he is not about for any reason then the service is crap. either no delieverys, or a delivery...but for parcels they dont bother ringing the bell. either leving it under the mat (which is ok usually, but i dont know how often its not been ok!!) or posying a ote thru with not ringing

Generally 1st class can come next day or the day after, 2nd class can take up to a week. We have been here for 9 years and have only had 2 parcels that havent turned up which isnt bad (although one was my secret santa pressie from my BB and the other an order from RNW :( ) My postman is very good and wont take a parcel back to the sorting office but puts it in my garage if Im out :)
