Hello! Work experience is now over. YAY! I will miss the artefacts, but I defiantly wont miss all the awkward small talk. I'm not a fan of small talk at all. If anything, it makes me more nervous. But aside from that, I received a lovely letter/package in the mail this week, from the very sweet Jennifer.

I always enjoy her letters and the book was lovely surprise!I also received some lovely postcards, but I'll show you them in my next post. :)

Yesterday night, while watching 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' I made lots and lots of little packets to hold the tea I send to my lovely pen friends. :) Here is a picture of a few of them, there is so many more( I got a bit carried away :P).

I also need you help! My family and I are getting two chickens. But we don't know what to call them. We want their names to be normal just like the rest of our pets. (George the hamster, Rita the cat, Phoebe the other cat, and all of the fish are called Steve. All 30 of them). I like Doris and Norah, but my dad is being awkward and likes 'Mega-tron'. Sometimes I swear he has the mind of an eight year old.

-Insert interesting title here-

Hello! I'm currently sitting in my room wanting nothing but to go to sleep, but knowing in doing this I won't have a decent nights sleep. So I'll just have to struggle through. The reason for this exhaustion is work experience. It seems to take all my energy. I'm working in a record office, which is delightful! I get to handle books and letters that are hundreds of years old. The oldest one I've seen so far is over 600 years old. So I am in heaven. Being surrounded with all that history is just so exciting to me. But it doesn't matter how amazing it is there, I am certainly looking forward to leaving at the end of this week. The extra two hours kill me. D: Any way enough talk here is some incoming and out going mail. :)


The first letter is to Megan from Time after Tea, it's a reply to her lovely first letter.
And the second letter is for lovely Lauren from Letters, She Wrote.

Secondly two postcards going out to Finland and China. :)


The letter on the top is a lovely first letter from Megan. The Envelope was so cute! And the second was from Lauren. That was probably my favourite envelope I have ever received. Everything about it was just...Wow.

Two postcards from Germany, isn't the first one just so gorgeous?

Hello! Welcome to my blog. On here I plan to post things that make me smile, laugh and cry. This will probably include the beautiful mail I receive, the pictures that make me laugh, my daily doings and an occasional rant when something annoys me. :P
