I woke this morning, to find an email from a very good friend had arrived overnight. I was elated to hear from her and read all her news.It was a lovely way to commence the day.I don’t think it will come as any surprise to regular readers here that I delight in receiving emails, whether it be from friends or readers of this site. Before the Internet( back in the dark ages), I used to correspond with several friends and relatives regularly. Our letters were always long, detailed and receiving them was always exciting. Yes, we could have picked up the phone and had a conversation but there is something intimate and personal about letters that seems to get lost over the phone. I have kept many of those letters including letters from D, old boyfriends, my grandmother, employers and little notes and cards written by Prue as a small child.These, together with academic texts and books are the only items I hoard!
The rain has stopped and it is not as cold as yesterday and I don’t mind that at all, even though we are in desperate need of water here due to the on going drought. I think everyone is feeling the cold because we have had no lead into winter. Two weeks ago it was 30 C and I was dressed in summer attire, now I am rugged up in boots and a scarf. LOL
I have plenty to do , so I best get back to it. 🙂
