Bank holidays

Bank Holiday Mondays mean no post received that day. Today is Tuesday and the only item of post arrived was for my son and it was a postcard from his classmate on holiday in Spain (he arrived back home at least a week or so ago).

I did have a letter on Saturday, the only one in my pile to reply to.

I posted more Postcrossing postcards today too. One sent postcard of mine arrived in India after only 5 days! One to Thailand arrived in 4 days!

Some more outgoing post...

I sent up to my full allowance of Postcrossing postcards this week.

Just a small selection of outgoing post....
And some more...
Saw this book... Masters of the Post: The Authorized History of the Royal Mail. I think I'll add this to my to-read list.

August void

I'll be interested to see how much post I will receive this month and compare it with last year (I'll have to go through my diary to find out)... but I have not had much post this month. There have been times when I haven't had any letters to reply to. So, I have been searching for new correspondents, and also sending a few Postcrossing postcards (not yet at my full allowance).

Today, I sent out some postcards..

I sent out a letter needing a higher rate of postage than I usually send.... Thomas the Tank Engine with a Morgan Plus 8. 
 I am slowly using up miniature sheets, though none of today's outgoing post had these on. I can't remember where the TARDIS went!

To Do....

 Some letters posted recently. Has the summer months slowed down the to-and-fro of correspondence?
 Why is it there is an abundance of Thank You paper in card shops... I'd like to see an abundance of decorative paper without a caption because if you are writing something anyway, wouldn't it be more sincere if the writer wrote "Thank You" instead of a machine printing it?
A to-do list... tasks, errands, correspondence, notes... Guess which one I'd like to have "full"!
I could do with drawing up a to-do list for subjects to cover in this blog... I've done address books.... what else is there to muse upon?

It suits me

My husband, last night, said that the writer's bureau suits me! I have been sitting at it most evenings writing letters, occasionally scooting across the floor in my swivel chair to check something on the computer, or to put the next background noise source on (radio, or an episode on a DVD). I love my bureau!

Last Friday, I sent a surprise letter to someone in Germany and today (Friday 2nd August), I received a reply!

Forgot to post a letter yesterday, completely slipped my mind! Tut tut. It'll get sent out today with two other letters.

July Stats:

Postcards: 36 in, 5 out.
Letters: 20 out (including 6 surprises), 11 in.
3 other things sent out and one received.
