My Month of Letters participation went well this year with at least one item of mail (and often two) posted every day of the month. I was keeping a tally of recipients as I went along this time around so my final totals are:
Correspondence sent to twenty-four people plus my parents x two items
Birthday card for my dad
One reply to a Month of Letters response (thanks Grainne!)
The lovely thing about sending #Lettermo mail this year, has been receiving post in return. One day I came home to the thrill of finding four non-brown envelope items on the door mat, which these days is quite something. To mark the occasion I assembled several items for a photograph. After much posing and arranging, here they are:
I do plan to keep up my rekindled enthusiasm for writing letters and postcards and have even bought a
rather nice postcard calendar (marked down to clear) so that I need never be short of something to send. For this year’s letter writing challenge a special Month of Letters postcard design was available to order so I splashed out on a bundle of them.
Maybe I will manage to be less of a Facebook-er and more of a pen friend correspondent this year. Watch this space…
What a lovely idea. Though these days sending letters by post is sort of uncommon.
It’s surprising how many people have been pleased to get snail mail, I’m going to try and keep it up! Of course I also love getting real post myself.
