I’ve always wanted a letter-writing kit for writing on the go. Which is funny, when I tend to stay at home and don’t really go anywhere. Anyway, when I saw this in a shop in Portmeirion a few weeks ago, I had to buy it! It’s perfect for keeping paper and stuff in it. It’s meant to be a laptop cover for one of those little laptops. You know the kind; people take them on trains and tap, tap tap away at them all the blessed time. It’s airmail themed, which is just lovely! Now, all I have to do is actually go somewhere so I can write and go!
My daughter called in at the post office in Penparcau for me, to get me some airmail stickers. As you can see from the ‘photo, we’re now getting the new stickers in Wales, and I don’t like them at all. The old style stickers are on the left of the picture, in a nice, elegant serif font. We’re now being expected to use these horrible sans serif stickers that look cheap and ugly. I suppose the bods at the PO thought they were more modern. Well, I think I’ll have a go at making my own. Why do folks think that plain and ugly equal modern and progressive?
