Living as far north as we do, many friends and loved ones are 'doon sooth' - we rely on the post for lots of things - and those that come unexpected are always a bonus. This week, I've been lucky enough to receive, three cards, two magazines, a book (pictured above), a box of cake for a hearty welcome (how cool a gift in the mail!) and a tub of home made garam massala spices (yum) and a packet of home collected seed!
How utterly lucky am I. I also received a phone bill, a credit card bill and various junk mail. I've learnt to get rid of the junk I can stop the drop and get rid of any unwanted mail really easily (use that link for ideas). I don't think they help with the credit card bill though........... My family insist we don't need any help with unsolicited welcome cake however............
How utterly delicious does that look, arriving in a lovely array of yumminess. Thank you very much to the particular folk at slow food for the welcome card and cake, more on that another time..........the kettle and the cake are calling, then feet up with a good book, or a magazine whilst I have a think about what I'll do with those seeds, I love 'nice post' - thank you guys!
Ps - to get rid of any pesky junk post visit here for a great advice.......or look for your local agency. Mail needn't be boring, lets enjoy getting post - if you fancy it, take a look at how you can reduce your junk mail on here or online or at a local recycling site and if you fancy it leave a comment and if your name comes out the hat, I'll send you something fun in the post garden/food/recycling related - anywhere in the world - it might be a small something but it will be a 'fun' something in the mail. Mail should be exciting, helps to curtail those pesky necessary credit card bills etc. You've got until st andrews day - 30th November - and then I'll put all the posters names in a woolly hat and then pull out one lucky chap to post something fun too, if you're chosen I'll email you for your address, dont' worry I'll keep it very secret!
