This came through the mail yesterday and I didn't notice it till late in the night. Totally soaked as it rained cats and dogs yesterday evening.
The service is quite fast. I requested for it through email last week; thought I would receive an email but received a snail mail instead. Such a pleasant surprise.
Many years ago, I would receive a whole letter box full of letters from penpals. The excitement of cycling home from school and seeing the letter box overflowing with letters. Had to rush in to get the key to the box to retrieve the letters. Those were the days when I wrote and wrote and wrote. Out of the many many that I corresponded with; today I am only in contact with Irene.
I don't think many teens have penpals nowadays. Sms, emails, FBs etc have turned letter writing into a thing of the past. It had helped me a lot as a teen; improved my hand writing, my language, knowledge. Used to exchange stamps, pictures of favourite movie idols, stickers etc. How sad....I have lost these things...just the memories remain. There was a picture of a rather old, balding Englishman who corresponded with me for a while...wonder where the picture is now.
Today...what do I get through the post? Bills, bills and more bills!!!!
