From that moment on, I was in love with stationary. I would find any excuse to send a letter to someone through the post on beautifully watermarked notepaper in a thick cream envelope. After Christmas and my Birthday was my favourite time as I would send thank you cards/notes to anyone and everyone.
20 years on, I still send cards and notes through the post. I don't think anything beats that feeling of coming home after a hard day and finding a handwritten envelope on the doormat. Just knowing that someone has taken the time to source a pretty card and handwrite that note, whatever it may say, means so much.
In an age where emails and text messages seem to rule everyday correspondence, I truly hope we don't forget to make time to sit down and send that little note, inviting a friend for coffee or even just to let them know that we are thinking about them - remember the Royal Mail advert from years ago? 'I saw this and thought of you'!
