L is for Letters Lost
With the advancement of technology over the past 30 years, communication has certainly changed. I remember the days when we used to write letters in order to catch up with a friend or a relative and share our news. Mention letter writing to the young generation of today and they smile, waving their slim-line mobile phone in front of your face.
As a schoolchild, letter writing was revered. It was something that was carefully crafted. Our class even had pen pals with a school in Canada. The thrill of receiving a hand written letter was next to none and always put a smile on my face. I also enjoyed writing them, using my best cursive handwriting with my ink pen.
Today, the majority of letters I receive through the post are from official bodies. You know the type? They growl at you when you open them.
Do you still hand-write letters? Do you remember the thrill of opening and reading a hand written letter that arrived in the post?
