Just a quick post today, as I'm busy answering as many letters as I can before my kids and I head off on a little holiday next week.
Isn't it always the way? I just posted about getting mail every day last week, then Monday rolled around and my letterbox was... empty. So was my post office box. I think the universe was reminding me not to take good mail for granted!
The plus side is that it gives me more of a chance to catch up on the mail I already have to reply to. Gone are the days when I had maybe 3 or 4 letters in my 'reply to' pile. These days it usually sits at about 15 letters... plus I still have quite a few 'first' letters I plan on writing.
My empty letterbox yesterday also got me thinking about this thing I call 'Mail greed.' The thing is, a person can go pretty much there whole life, only receiving a letter now and then. Then one day they decide they are going to start writing more letters and within a few months they have received more mail than they have in the past five years! But any day that the postie happens to pass by their letterbox and not drop something through the slot, well there's a disappointment... even if they got three letters the day before, and will get a couple more the next. See? Mail greed.
Or is that just me?
