A card which was addressed to a woman who lived “somewhere at top of town” miraculously made it to the right house.
Tracey Fitzharris, 43, shared a snap of the envelope online which was sent by a pal in Scotland.
The full address reads: “Somewhere at top of town, St Ives, Cornwall”.
On the back of the letter they added a note, the sender clearly knew it was an unusual ask, which said: “big love to the postie X”.
Tracey, who had spinal surgery next week, explained: “…because she knew I wasn’t great she decided to send me a card and literally thought ‘bugger it’ and sent it without an address.
“Anyway it arrived yesterday and it made me smile, she was amazed it actually arrived.”

Tracey’s operation had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and took place at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, Devon.
She spoke to her mate, who lived 650 miles away in Duror, Scotland, before having the surgery.
It was also just two days before her birthday, reports The Mirror.
Tracey said: “Just before Christmas my friend moved to Duror.
“So I got her new address and sent her a Christmas card. She rang me up and said she felt bad because she hadn’t sent any and could I send my address.
“I laughed and said no, I didn’t need a card and FaceTime and wine is much better and our only option nowadays.”
But, her loving friend refused to give up so easily and decided to send the card without a proper address anyway.
Tracey added: “We spent some time laughing about it on the phone…
“She didn’t tell me she sent it in case it didn’t arrive. I’m glad she put a stamp on it.”
