    Have had quite a few delays in the last few weeks, items sent last week in September or first week October not progressing. Turns out first week in October was a national holiday in China so postal system shut down, knowing this im not stressing as much and giving items an extra week. Has affected all my items, ebay and bricks and mortar shops sending.
    Anyone else had similar?

    No, sellers I have used before. Things from late September started arriving today. Taking 17 to 20 days instead of the normal 7. Holiday really messed things up.
