Letters written in the last 24 hours (while watching almost the whole series of Firefly last night);


^ For lovely Felicia.


^ To my sweet (and only) New Zealand pen pal, Stella.


^ To sweet Kaatje.


^ To lovely miss Astrid (I'm nearly out of these map envelopes, so soon I'll have to actually start making them out of something new!).


^ For darling miss Lisa in Norway.

Letters written earlier this week:


^ A big ole package for my mum and little sister for their respective birthdays last week and this week. I can't tell you what's in it or they'll read it and SPOIL IT!


^ A long overdue mix cd for an old high school friend. We share music from time to time and he introduces me to the best stuff.


^ A note for miss Tess.

This week C and I checked out a pretty house we'd like to rent. It's a gorgeous little thing and my only issue with it is that it sits atop one of the biggest, steepest asthma-inducing hills in Launceston, but C claims it will just make us fitter. Oh, and it has one of the most horrible, battered tin mail boxes, nailed to a post. It will have to go. Maybe I'll even construct my own mail box to replace it. We put in the paperwork for the house on Friday and are hoping that the fact that the real estate is on Cameron Street and is called 'Roberts' (C's first and middle names), teamed with the fact that it was Friday the 13th and the fact that we saw the town cross dresser in the real estate while we were there and his name is Robert, all contribute to some major luck regarding us getting this house :D There's a chance we'll find out the verdict tomorrow. I hate getting emotionally invested in houses! Fingers and toes crossed.
