... on the doormat this morning, a lovely lilac-and-white A4 envelope with a heavy document inside (of course, I had forgotten that here the form will be bilingual - in Wales, every document is twice as big as it needs to be*).
And, on the cover, that lovely, warm ain't-it-wonderful-to-live-in-a-free-society legend:
Your census response is required by law
"No pressure", then.
I think I might fill it in straight away and post it off this afternoon, like you do with credit card bills when you are feeling virtuous. They'd appreciate a prompt response, surely?
(*That is not to say that either language is unnecessary, just that every reader will only ever read half the document, and that's a lot of trees.)
