Today I’m going to the post box to post a letter to my sister. It has taken me I think two weeks to write and take it to the post box.
My preferred way of communicating for work purposes is email. Outside of work I still use email but rarely normally to receive rather than correspond.
A month ago I wrote three cards in the same week a condolence card and a card to both grandparents.
Pen pals used to be very popular when pen was put to paper to share something with another person.
When I was at school I learnt how to construct a letter properly.
The idea of writing your thoughts and feeling down that you wish to share, even your best wishes putting pen to paper today is as a rare happening for many.
Posting letters can be a frustrating job too. Where my parents live they have a post box opposite their house very convenient. Where my husband and I live I think the closest is a 5 minute walk away! Which I appreciate isn’t far however not as convenient as I’d like.
Postage stamps are also very expensive I believe normally I will either use my husband’s or save any stamp which hadn’t been franked on the letters that arrives using a stamp and not a franking machine.
I suppose with a little more organization into my schedule I’ll be able to make time to write and post a letters regularly, next time a little faster than two weeks.
Many senior people have moved on from the carrier pigeon but still feel more comfortable putting pen to paper and using the royal mail. Why not make a seniors day by writing them a letter?!
Happy letter writing friends!
