There's not much that excites me more than real, hand written letters through the post. Sadly not as many arrive as I send out. Four years in South Africa with a postal service that was dodgy to say the least and the recent mess up with our PO Box address in Dubai hasn't helped, but letters do get through eventually.
Due to being back in work, I've not had the time to write as many letters as I would've liked over the past few months, so I'm spending today and tomorrow, making it a priority. I paid a visit to Hallmark cards and the local supermarket today to purchase new writing paper and several birthday cards, post cards and stamps.
I write to a variety of people, family and friends and a whole bunch of pen friends I've met on twitter and then in real life, including a trip last year to meet one in Canada. My mum and I write regularly with letters crossing over every week. I send postcards and random packages to the adult kids
Receiving a letter or card is so personal. We still write thank you cards when the girls get presents and it seems we are part of a small group that still does that.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up
you're welcome, hopefully we've got the postal system sorted nowDelete
I use to be really good at writing letters to my friends and my family. sadly though i have gotten lazy since I became a mum and now I tend to text or email more!!! But i agree it is lovely to receive a letter or card in the post xReplyDelete
we love receiving post, we even get excited over a bill these days...lolDelete
I love letters from home too! Ways to heal homesickness and the effort to write it means a lot to me =)ReplyDelete
it is difficult to write some times without sounding like you're showing off, since i returned to work, i'm struggling to find things to write aboutDelete
