1. A couple of weeks ago I ordered 4 dresses in the eShakti sale. They arrived this week and these are the ones I’m keeping…one of them was far too short and was certainly not a dress!

The Art of Communication

I still find it hard to believe that I haven’t sent a text message for 3 months.  I haven’t had a working mobile phone whilst I have been in the US; apparently I should have one in the case of an emergency but I haven’t got round to buying one yet.  I still use my iPhone but only where I have wifi and all other communication happens via our laptop.

A few weeks ago, I wrote letters to Grandparents as I thought that it would be nice for them to receive mail from me while I’m in another country.  I then received a reply from my Grandma and loved reading it.  There are a few reasons why written letters appeal to me:

  • I can make sure my handwriting is still neat, something that is easily forgotten when we communicate so much through technology.
  • The anticipation of waiting for post and replies;  I love checking our mail box every day to see what we have received.
  • The thought that a piece of paper for me has travelled across the World makes me smile.
  • Making other people smile by sending them post also makes me smile!
  • Even though I don’t collect stamps or postcards (yet), I find it fascinating to see the different designs that are available in different countries.

When I was younger, probably between 7-10 years old, I had a few pen pals.  I can’t remember their names as I never kept in touch with them.  Writing letters to family made me think about how nice it would have been if I had kept in touch with those pen pals.  This led on to me doing a bit of research and signing up to 3 websites, all focused around sending/receiving post!
