I write a lot of letters. I love the idea of old fashioned post through the letterbox and landing on the mat with the wonder whether the dog will chew it up before I get to it. I love the feeling of putting pen to paper, adding little things into the package or envelopesand sending them off at the post office even if it is easier to just type up an e-mail nowdays.
Sometimes I'll include photographs or extra notes and occasionally I'll add in a load of glitter if it's a birthday just to annoy them a little more upon opening and make it extra jazzy. I'll use letter writing sets with pretty paper or just plain envelopes that I pick up from the post office the morning of sending if I'm really disorganised or ones that I already have since I've bulk ordered from places like eBay and Paperstone.co.uk.
The letters could be about anything at all but if it's for big news or asking questions I generally e-mail or phone just for ease of conversation. With everything moving s swiftly in our lives now it's very difficult to wait for appropriate responses yet sometimes I feel I need that time, maybe for nostalgia purposes and sometimes just for the element of excitement while waiting. It may be easier but receiving a letter in response is such a great feeling that I don't think I'll ever give up writing them by hand completely.
Do you still write letters?
