In the days before computers, when we were still at school one of the things to do was have a penpal. I remember having penpals in Scotland and Japan but as most things go when you are growing up writing letters takes a back seat to running amok after school (ahem that should be doing homework after school), finding out that the opposite sex is interesting etc.
Well a blogger friend decided to bring back the art of penpalism and set up a secret penpal exchange, via normal post . We are to send a card or letter to our person the first week of the month up until Christmas. The person I sent to received their card earlier this month ( I sneakily checked out their blog) and I received a lovely letter from my person yesterday in the mail. Getting a letter or card in the mail sure is different than getting an email from someone. You forget how nice it is to hold something solid in your hand and read about someone,something, some place.
Bring on next month !!
