Today I…

… Sent a parcel to my friend in England. It wasn’t a big parcel and as she reads here sometimes, I won’t mention what was in it other than to say that it’s not heavy. I had to stick 27 stamps on the envelope to cover the cost of posting this parcel.

 … Drove behind a wrecker truck called ‘Lucky Wrecker Service.’ Does that mean you are lucky that you broke down or crashed so you can now have the pleasure of their service?

… Picked up my electoral registration card and realised how much my hair colour has changed in the last 4 months.

… And I designed the kitchen in my new house. I picked out the wood I want them to use, talked about where I needed electricity points and worked out what I wanted where. It didn’t take very long as the kitchen is so small that there are not many options.

And now it’s time to plan for the weekend.

    27 stamps?

    Last year I sent a shirt as a parcel to an online friend in Finland.. I think I had to use around $400 in stamps I think but I dont remember putting more than 5 stamps on it either.

    I couldn’t tell the last time I used the postal service. You go you interior decorator you!

    the parcel cost a total of $1,400! and it wasn’t that heavy…

    The largest stamp denomination that they had available was a $60 stamp – and they didn’t have that many of them!!

    gela – I might well not be able to vote. From what I’m hearing, elections will be while I’m off the island this summer so I’ll also miss my chance.

    Spicy – I never actually made it to the show (shamed face), too manyother things got in the way… namely painting my walls cranberry red!

    Cranky – hair had got to a very blonde state, it is now back to brown, with a reddish hint
