I’m feeling rather poorly today with one of those throats that went from prickly to very sore and a hacking cough in a matter of hours. So I’m having a day off work, not doing too much at all. No housework, not even any sewing. Muffy has been looking after me. She loves to have someone at home during the day.
What I have been doing, after checking the emails, it write a few letters to overseas pen friends. I mentioned this at work last week, and the reaction was interesting. “No one writes letters these days”, I was told, “with emails and texting”. Well I certainly do write letters, and my pen friends appreciate receiving them. Nice newsy letters full of what we have been getting up to over the last few months. I love to get letters too, it is something that can be read and savoured, and re-read again when you get around to replying. Emails have their place, and as for texting, I just can’t get the hang of it! And they don’t spell the words properly. Give me a real letter any day.
