Last week correos delivered a package that was shipped from the US on the 27th November last year. Only 4 1/2 months that time.
So hoping that the items shipped in October may still turn up......

That has been completely typical for some time now, in my experience. It got much slower around 2010 and slower again a couple of years ago. We also just got a couple of parcels from about that long ago, so maybe they're clearing out the warehouse...

Your idea fits my case, as the xmas card postmarked 1.12.17 that recently arrived, looked like it had been on the floor, maybe resulting from being kicked under the sorting table at some time.
