Excuse the pun, but I'm feeling boxed in, smothered under a mountain of cardboard boxes with no end in sight as a relentless procession of deliverymen and women arrive at the house with a variety of boxes, big, medium and small.

I'm now on first-name terms with couriers in their vans, cars and bikes. I get a big salute from them, even when they're not calling to my door.

It was bad before, but lockdown has produced an avalanche of online deliveries. None, I might add, for me.
