Week 3: the first in possibly many late updates

Ok so first sorry about being all late with this… i have not gone crazy.. i know today is monday and not sunday but i was at work on sunday so was too tired to update by the time i got back home. Had an interesting week mail wise… i found some missing mail from week two so ill have to start off with those i’m a little confused as to how i would have missed them out!!. Tried to join SwapBot but nothings happening there because its stupid and wont let me join… mail to the people who run it has recovered NOTHING… and i’m still awaiting confirmation from we love snail mail, cant wait to get the money together to join the letter writer alliance!!! I have also had some amazing new stationary through!

week 2 extended:

this post card was sent by Allen all the way from taiwan!!! Allen writes that he hopes i like the card and enquires about the weather! thanks Allen!

this beauty has come all the way from Estonia from Annika, (i used to have a friend called Annika she was an awesome artist) Annika writes that she hopes i like the post card with a view of her tiny country, and i do :)

This simple arty design is from the netherlands and sent by yvonne, they write about the weather and the fact that they work on a goat farm (AWESOME!) they make butter and cheese.

thanks alot to the above people and i am very sorry that your items where mislaid for a week!

Talking about mislaid items i found an OLD postcard i received when i was really young.. before the internet GASP (yes there was such a time!)

On the front is an image of a statue of ST Patrick.. the back reads “dear sabrina. remember st patricks day? we did not climb the mountain this year - maybe next! thanks for a great camp, we had a great time, see you soon, Groovy” who on earth is groovy… ive also never been to irland… either way im definitely thinking this is from back when i used to be a brownie! now thats an age ago!!!

WEEK 3 (finally :)

this letter arrived all the way from america and was sent by iris, iris writes about her time through the great depression, her family and basically gives me an amazing run down of her life! she also writes that she has traveled and even been to the UK our food suck by the sounds of things but its good we speak the same lingo!! hah! i hope iris enjoys her trip to france! thanks alot iris!!



This small package sent by melissa g is winning on the random front! and the comp :P (if she wants the prize) it has travelled all the way from the USA and was amazing to open as i got this great whiff of coffee! Melissa sent me the packaging of her breakfast and thats it :) thanks!!!

this postcard was sent by Natassja from Belarus she writes that the front of the postcard is an image of the monument of Francist Skaryna and they hoped i liked it.

this post card was sent all the way from poland, it came with no name but a lovely little quote “its a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence” - Seneco

last but by no means least is this beautiful post card from germany sent by peter (the only name i could make out), this tested me in many ways as the hand writing was rather shaky and in german! i can read and speak a bit of german (i got by pretty well in Berlin earlier this year). peter talks about the painting being french and painted in a promiscuous time for france (maybe) and they have the hobby of travelling. or they live in a small town the painting is french and they love to travel. sorry its been a while since i was tested with my german like this :(.

and so thats the end of another little look into what i have had the pleasure of receiving through the post. please keep them coming! and if you can help me in any way i’d be eternally grateful.
