This is something I'm still figuring out. I tend to pick up my mail when I am either a) on my way to work, or b) on my way home from work, with kids in tow. Either way, it is not an ideal time for sitting and reading letters. Ideal meaning, in this instance, sitting down in a quiet place in a big comfy chair with cup of tea and bikkies to mull joyously over letters, etc.
I like this idyllic picture so much that I have even been contemplating buying a special chair for reading mail in. Yes, really.
I know that some of you have enough patience to wait til the evening, when all the business of the day has gone and you can have some time just for you and your letters. I like that idea, too, but I'm not good at postponing pleasure. So, I'm a bit embarrassed to say, but I usually end up reading mail in the car, at my desk at work (in between work tasks) or standing at my kitchen bench. Does this give the letters their due? I tend to think not.
I've asked before where it is you write your letters, but now I'd like to know where you read them...
Love from Kaz
