Friday Frivolity - Letter Writing

Friday Frivolity

Okay, so you may have noticed that today's post is a bit late. Very late even. This is because for some reason I was convinced last night I didn't need to sort the post out until the next day. This is what happens when I'm not glued to my week planner!

Anyway, I'm here now and this week's theme is letter writing. It's not something I do that much of these days, unless I'm complaining about something, but in my teens penpalling was my absolute favourite hobby. I used to swap stamps and coins and mix tapes (remember them!) with teenage girls from all over the world, and my bedroom walls were covered in little momentoes and postcards from penpals.

It just tailed off as I got older though, not least because:

Snail Mail

I love my local postie, don't get me wrong, but Royal Mail itself stinks. They lose mail, they don't deliver it on time, they arbitrarily change how much they charge every couple of months - seriously, how many times a year do you need to change the size to cost ratio?? - and, sometimes, they even leave a little surprise:

special delivery

To be fair, they do go above and beyond at times - like this recent delivery of a stamped and addressed banana:

Banana delivered by Royal Mail

Though that has nothing on the grit of postmen past - W. Reginald Bray was one of Britain's most infamous prank, and even sent himself as a letter. Here he is being delivered to his father... Doesn't his dad just look so happy!? xD

Now on to the link-up! :D
