I posted my first mail for the LetterMO Month of Letters today. Actually I had my mailing middle man, Tim, pop it into the post box in town. The post box is 50km away and in all honesty I'm not that dedicated to mailing out a letter everyday that I would drive that far but he is at work over the weekend so all is good.
My first item of mail for the month was a postcard along with a cinema advertising flyer for the recent Doctor Who special heading off to Russia (via postcrossing).
I also wrote a little note to my Mum and sent that too. Hope she likes it.
This is the box that I keep the letters in that I receive. It has of course filled to overflowing a couple of times so now it is just the special cards and letters from days gone by and the most recent mail I've read and replied to.
Today I've been doing just about anything to not think about how hot it is outside. I have given up looking at any forecasts because they really don't have much in the way of good news. I've had to top up the chicks water twice. They can't have deep water dishes because they can drown. The ducks however like to mess and splash around in any water and must investigate every fresh supply that comes their way whether it is intended for them or for little chicks.
Anyway it is toasted sandwiches for dinner here tonight. I don't want to heat up t he kitchen anymore than necessary. I did make a cheesecake this morning to soften the blow of having a snack for dinner.
