Today I’m telling you about about my other hobby that probably takes up a bit more time than blogging…Writing letters also known as Snail Mail.
I think it’s nice to receive a letter in the post other than junk mail, utility bills or similiar. Every time I receive a letter in the post box it’s like Christmas. Seriously, I am always so happy and excited about receiving mail in the post. Even better when you get little gifts with it. It’s incredible what some people come up with.
Yesterday I actually got new stationary from Etsy. They have so much nice stuff stationary wise. Unfortunately most of it is from the US so it takes time to receive it if you live in Ireland but once you received it it’s so worth it. The one above I purchased from a shop called Puchimo if you want to have a look at it. But there’s so much more amazing stuff out there.
I started penpaling at the age of 16. I took a long break when I turned 21. Just didn’t have the time anymore. Just less than a year ago I thought I’d take it up again. Another hobby on the side for the evening time when my son is in his bed. I’m glad I did. Right now I have about 7 pen pals who live in Germany, Australia, the Netherlands and the US. I’d say I would take up another 13 to reach the 20.
My post box is so empty and sad at the moment. It needs more happy mail.
Are you a person who likes to write emails and just send it off quick or do you prefer the old style and write letters and post them off?
