I had the most wonderful plans for the weekend:
Because at 8pm on Friday night I came down with a fever and the worst case of vertigo known to humankind (no exaggeration, of course), which persisted through until this morning. Monday. Making me well enough to drag my sorry self out of bed and into work.
Life can be oh! so! cruel!
Because one should never fall ill on days when one cannot take sick leave from one's place of employment, right?
You might be asking what all this has to do with mail? Absolutely nothing, aside from the fact that the fever and the vertigo kept me from the letters as it did everything else on the weekend. So, in today's post went one lonesome letter to Laura, whilst Ulrika's sits half-finished on the dining room table, along with a postcard to Katja that I forgot to buy stamps for.
Forgot to buy stamps?
I am clearly very ill indeed.
Which has me wondering: Can germs be transported through the post?
For Laura, Ulrika and Katja's sakes, I hope not.
Written correspondence has been a hobby of mine for a long time, & Monday Mail Out is a weekly feature whereby I can share my love for the lost art of letter writing. I hope my experiences will encourage others to send out letters on Monday too, and have them rediscover the joy of sending and receiving mail. If you have a blog, feel free to join in.
