British word(s) of the day v. 4

The holidays are over in the US, which means in Britain, the “festive season” is done.

I went to the bank yesterday to “pay in” a “cheque”, which in America would be “deposit” a “check”.

Speaking of which, I had to send money by mail to someone in London, which begs the question: does “The cheque is in the post” have the same connotation of “the check is in the mail”???
