Default Speed of mail delivery?

Is it just me or is Royal mail getting slower than it used to be?

I remember when you could place an order before 5PM with someone like HMV or amazon, select first class delivery and get it the next day. Now it seems to take a week if not longer and don't even think about order of ebay!.

Anyone else experiencing this?
