Written/Sent Week 13

Easter holiday gave me more time to concentrate on letters and cards but unfortunately my long report about leadership (deadline: Saturday - thank god I got paired up on Tuesday, otherwise I would have written  it all alone X__x) took some of that time :( As well as my mum working me and my brother like slaves now that she got us here :/

AND I RAN OUT OF STAMPS AGAIN D: (Even though I visited the store/post office near my parents' place on Saturday.. I really miss the old lady who owned the store and was SO nice to everyone and even showed me ALL the stamps they had D: Now there's this overweight man who just gives you whatever he finds first D:) Will be mailing a package or two and buying stamps when I get money again - April 4th D: But some letters/cards might start travelling a bit earlier as daddy promised to help me with the stamps♥

But here's what I did manage to write/send...

And I bet everyone sees when I was at my apartment and when I got to my parents' place.. Scanner♥♥♥

Postcrossing

For some reason cards seem to be more or less stuck :( Cards to faraway countries such as Belgium, Portugal and Turkey have either disappeared, decided to take a trip around the globe before arriving or all of the recipients decided it's time to take it easy and not register cards D:

After these cards I won't send postcrossing cards for a while (only exceptions being the possible 2nd cards if the card is still travelling 40-60 days after it was sent) - I've been neglecting my pen pals for a while and postcrossing is in the end quite expensive and I could send a letter with the same amount of money as I send the postcard... So my sent cards should stop at 485 for months :) At least I hope so.........

Card to Taiwan after the last one finally expired (4th expired postcard now that the Russian girl DID get the 2nd card I sent to her - the card traveled for "only" 84 days :)

And a nature card to Netherlands :)
Alice in Wonderland card to Finland (didn't know I had one!! - Have to go through my cards :D
Already received :))

Thursday's Surprise!

A letter from a German girl I didn't think I'd hear from again..
Sent to my parents' address (nice to get mail to both addresses :))
She did that adorable bear origami(?) and to my disappointment only wrote a sentence or two of every question she was asked.. So it was an A5 paper written to nearly both sides :(


~Lily

We'll see if anything is waiting for me at my apartment on Monday.. :)
