I'm not gonna write you a love song.

I've been so excited to write this post this morning, but I had to get the 'boring' things like uni work out of the way with first! I'm so proud of my self, I've just submitted my first piece of formative work, it was mainly just a test to see if you knew how to use the submitting software, but still I'm pretty excited. 

Anyway, about a month or so ago, I was desperate for a penal. I asked on here and got a lovely email-pal, but I wanted to be greedy and have an actual pen and paper pal. After looking on Tumblr, I found a few people were looking for someone to write to, which was fab cos that is exactly what I wanted. I contacted a few and now I have pen pals from all over the world. I currently have two in USA,one in Singapore and one in Wales. I get so excited when I receive a letter, it's ridiculous. I'm in desperate need of a notice board to pin up all my lovely letters and gorgeous envelopes. I have such thoughtful pen pals, it makes me sad to think we are in such a computerised world that my children probably will only know how to write an email. Seriously, if you are sick of sitting at a computer all day, or only communicating via text, just try and put pen to paper and write a letter, it is so worth it for the reply.

How pretty are the stamps and envelopes? One of my pen pals sent me the gorgeous vintage postcard, with seals on, and the cutest bunny sticker as she knows my love for rabbits! And I also received the lovely necklace from Singapore! I'm spoilt!

Do you have pen pals?
