I received a letter from Celina in Poland today, and the Kate Bush cd I had ordered from play.com. It’s “Director’s Cut” and is lovely!
I have a batch of letters to post including postcards for postcrossing. But DH is adamant that we are not going to town on saturday. (I don’t blame him, it’s tourist season and the streets are chocka-block.) Hmmm, I thought. So what am I going to do about my post? I’ve decided to get off the ‘bus early, when I go shopping tomorrow. So I’ll get off at Southgate and go along to the Penparcau post office. Then walk down the steep hill to Morrisons. Ah well, I get a bit of a walk and post my letters at the same time. Can’t be bad! Just hope it doesn’t rain!
The husband and I did our good postal deed of the day today! We were waiting for the ‘bus into town, when our postman turned up. He’d brought me my new fountain pen that I mentioned earlier. He went to the postbox that sits by the stile beside the right-of-way past our cottage and came back to us with an A4 envelope.
Was it ours? No it was not. But it only had an ordinary first class postage stamp on it, which meant it would be returned to the sender. (We have to use large sized stamps on large sized envelopes.) Luckily, husband and I remembered that we had four such stamps in the house. So I dashed in to get one while bloke watched out for the ‘bus. I scampered back out again, with said stamp and put it on the envelope that postie was holding. So, we saved some poor person in our hamlet from having their bit of post returned. Aren’t we nice?!
Well, I’d been given that kind of stamp by a different postman when I wasn’t sure if the birthday card I was going to send to my mother needed a large stamp. It did, I didn’t have one on me at the time, so he gave me one from his wallet. I reckon we’ve just paid that good deed back!
