If there's one thing that has stayed with me since I was a child, it is my love for writing. 
Every so often I struggle with just sitting down and writing, but when I first get started it's easy peasy. 

I have many penpals, mainly from Europe and USA with couple of exceptions being New Zealand and Japan. 

I started writing in 1991, that is when I got my first international penpal, Yuka from Japan. We are not in touch anymore but my "oldest" penpal is Cindy and we started writing when I was only 13 and she was 11. 

To get back into writing again (I have found it tough after my granny died) I have changed my wrting place. I am once again in the kitchen, and I have created a little corner for my letter stuff. 
 This is my little corner, with letters to reply to. I am quite happy about if I must say so myself.

And here is the start of my next letter, that will be to Erica. 

The dream is to one day have one of these
But we don't really have room for it. This is a picture I found on the net when I used the searchword " Skatoll".

But hey..maybe I can make one of these myself..who! 
Have a great day lovelies! 


  1. It can be hard to get back into writing after a loved one has died - been there, done that - so I can relate to what you say. The death of my mother in 2011 has made me re-assess my own life, and it took me quite a while to get back into letters. It didn't help that a series of bad / sad news plus health issues were piled on top of all my already existing 'misery' (for lack of a better word). I wish you the best of luck and hope you'll find your 'mojo' again! Take care!

  2. I'm not sure I've ever seen your blog before. Thanks for posting about it today :) I got your letter today. I will read it when dinner is over. (It was SO hot in school today, I just can't wait to sit in the air conditioning and relax on the couch with your letter!!!)


Hi, thank you for the visit, hope to see you soon!
