Ooh, incoming mail!

It’s been a while between mail, both incoming and outgoing. Life is still rushing by so fast, and with so many things to get done. Even taking a few minutes to sit and write a quick card conjures up feelings of guilt that I’m not getting something else more important done.

But this week when I visited Box 332 there was a lovely surprise inside – a card from Dani in Malaysia!

The stamp is gorgeous, colourful bouganvillea flowers on a summery green background. The perfect thing to liven up a miserable wet grey week.

I picked up the London bus stamps on my way out of the Post Office and can’t wait to use them – will definitely have to find the time!

Hello 2012!

It is the new year, and after a lovely holiday break from everything I’m back feeling refreshed and ready to write again.

First task has been to keep chipping away at my “To Be Replied To” pile. It’s got a sizeable dent in it now, so I’m back on top of things there. My Snail Mail Mojo has returned!

Second task is to breathe some life back into this blog.

What are your mail goals / resolutions for the new year?

Neglectful …

Once again I’ve been feeling guilty about neglecting this blog – I have to confess I’m being wooed away by Google+ and Pinterest still …

(If you’re on Google+, my profile is here. Feel free to circle me!)

Today I felt a little extra guilty though as when I checked Box332 there was a gorgeous letter from a new pal waiting. Thanks Courtney for your great letter! Not only was it a great letter, it was wonderful to hear from a real life person who reads my blog and, it turns out that Courtney lives only about 30 minutes away 😉

It’s funny though, it’s not just this blog that I’ve been neglecting. I’ve been in a bit of a letter writing slump of late. A couple of other letter-writing friends have reported a similar problem. How about you? Have you found it harder to sit down and put pen to paper in recent weeks? Any tips to get the snail mail mojo back again?

I’m going with a forced moment of solitude tonight. Have shut myself away in the office with a cool drink, the music on and a small pile of letters to sit down and respond to (including Courtney’s!)
