Outgoing in July

July has been a productive month of snail mail for me and another month of firsts. If you remember last month I had my first piece of mail go missing? Well this month I had my first piece of mail returned (the piece that went missing last month!) and it just goes to show it really is worth putting a return address on the envelope!

I also sent postcards toย Israel and Sri Lanka for the first time, received my first mail from a new penpal in Hawaii and finally got round to penning a few words of encouragement as part of theย More Love Letters initiative.

So here are this months stats: 26 postcards, 6 cards, 3 parcels and 2 letters to a total of 20 different countries.

*(Belarus, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Finland, Germany, Israel, Jersey, Latvia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Slovakia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, U.S.A.)

Another baby parcel on it’s way complete with colour changing stamp! That’s right, rub the writing on the stamp and the letters turn from peach to yellow!

        Might not be the most interesting sadly, I had a bit of a quiet mail month!

          I always find mailing and blogging slow down for me in over the summer, particularly in August and September.

            A lot of people getting ready for the school season and then adjusting to it again I guess! Slow snail mail times are bad for me though, I’ve gotten addicted to getting things in the mail so if I don’t have letters coming for me I start doing some online shopping! xD
