I love Sundays

... and this week I love Sunday more than usual, because I get to hang out in one of my favourite places and hopefully write some letters.

My good friends Chris and Sally have a little place in town that is sort of a gallery, sort of a cafe, but neither 'officially'. Really, it is a community space. They always open it on Saturdays. Last Sunday, I ran it for them for a few hours because there was a special weekend of events in Yass so it made sense to keep the cafe/gallery open. I had such a good time that I have offered to do it every Sunday between now and Christmas.

It's a very relaxing place to spend a few hours on a Sunday. I'm not expecting loads of people to arrive demanding coffees, so I'm going to take a big basketful of letter-writing supplies and set up on one of the tables to write letters in between coffee and chats.

I can't think of a better way to pass a lazy Sunday...

Oh, and I found this great post about how postcards originated. Thought you might be interested.

Love from Kaz


  1. stumbled across your blog randomly and i could not resist your name. 'kaz' is the abbreviation i use for my way-too-long polish last name!

  2. Well, from one Kaz to another, 'Welcome'.

  3. Good to know it is going to be open on Sundays for a while, Chris makes good coffee.

  4. I hope you got my letter. Not that I'm rushing a reply I'm just nervous that it didn't make it. It has a yellow envelope and probably post marked in early October. Just wondering if it made it!
    Neat bit about postcard!

  5. Jo, it'll be making the coffees on Sundays... but I learnt from the master. :-)

    Rachel - yes, your letter arrived. It was great, thank-you. I am further behind than I would like to be on my replies but be assured I will write back soon!

  6. Whew, no rush in response! I'm still in awe at how the postal service can deliver mail thousands of miles away and for a meer dollar.
