#Blogtober18 Day 9 Invitations and Letters #worldpostday

So here we are at day 9, Invitations and Letters for #worldpostday

World Post Day! I wonder if they invented that to try and encourage people to write more letters, or maybe just to celebrate those wonderful men and women that get up at stupid O-Clock to deliver our mail!

Although in my rural little village, I am lucky if we get the Royal Mail before 1pm, although all of the other delivery drivers can turn up anything from 8am to 9pm these days, so you never know when that parcel will arrive, or in the case of Lochlan who was desperately waiting for his new mobile phone that was due on Saturday and didn’t actually turn up until he had gone to college yesterday!! Thankfully peace has been restored in the house and his snapchat no longer crashes!!

With so many people now sending emails, post is very rare these days, Christmas time used to mean lots of post, but nowadays lots are opting to send e-cards or not bothering, not that I can blame people as the cost of stamps these days is extortionate!

I was looking for some witty poem about a postman but instead I give you a bronze postbox, to celebrate Anthony Ogogo coming third in the middleweight category at the 2012 Olympics, it caused a bit of controversy because Royal Mail were only painting post boxes gold, so someone local decided that our local hero deserved a bronze one!

Asa worked on the local torch relay procession and Anthony very kindly sent Kaide a message telling him to work hard and do well at school no matter what career he decides to go into, Kaide was very impressed and is doing what Anthony says!

    I find it so sad that post is rare nowadays. Todays prompt has really inspired me to start sending letters again x

    Oh my gosh! Look at that bronze postbox. That’s so cool. We love happy mail and are making a point of trying to send out more. #blogtober18

    Great story. I posted out a thank you card today. It’s so much nicer to have post than a text.

    What a great story, and such a lovely bronze post box.

    I genuinely dread the postman’s arrival. All he ever brings is bills or appointments haha!

    LOVE that someone painted your post box Bronze! We had a couple of gold ones locally – they were a brilliant addition! 🙂

    My mother in law posts the birthday cards to my children and she only lives down the road. She does it because she says it’s nice for them to get a card through the mail!

    I hear you! We have been living in this village for 10 years now and we rarely get our post before 1-2pm but couriers can come as early as 8 am. Guaranteed though if we are excitedly waiting for something it will come real late lol
