I keep having such wonderful mail-days that each one supersedes the previous one as "the best mail day". Today was no exception. I only received two letters today, but two that I have been waiting for a long time to receive.

The first was from J., a penpal from Australia:

And the second was from another J., although this one within the United States. Very glad it arrived!

In terms of outgoing, I am sending a letter to my friend B., back in Australia in the hope that his reply this time won't get lost in the mail.

I utilised both the new paper tape, and the new stamps for this "going green" piece!

What did you send out today?
Looking forward to hearing from you readers out there a little more often as I am now able to reply to your comments in a much quicker manner!

  1. Postage stamps are awesome. But I notice that J. from Australia put insufficient postage on their letter! My Post Master (one day I shall be a Post Master - or Mistress. Whatever) dutifully returns my mail with a handwritten note that says, "Sarah, you need $x more to send this", so I add it and post it again. The good thing is I never get one of those nasty insufficient postage fines that some postal workers relish in dishing out. My Post Master is good like that - I think they enjoy sending and delivering my pretty mail. Although, he doesn't like to deliver mail on Tuesday, so every single Tuesday for the past 3.5 years has been an NMD. No kidding.

    (P.S. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I'm totally up for a bit of correspondence if you're still interested? Just drop me an email and we'll work out the finer details.)


Thank you for your lovely postal ponderings!
May today be a beautiful, full-of-mail kind-of day!
