Fridayness

There is nothing better than getting a nice handwritten letter in the post. That's why my grandfather and I write to each other. We could SMS (yes, at 82 he is great on the cell phone) or call, but we write.

I really wish I got more letters. Hence my question to you... Anyone wanna be penpals? Not in the "I'll write to you every week on Sunday at 2pm" strict kind of way, but just to exchange the occasional correspondence for fun. If so, email me: doodlesofajourno@gmail.com.

Ok, aside from that... it is Friday, and I am back at work. Yesterday was spent in bed, sounding like a donkey with my hee-hawing flu voice. TSC thought it was hilarious, of course. It's a bit better now. I just sound like a phone-sex line, or a 30-a-day smoker. All gravelly and such. And so, while it lasts, I will use it (as any woman would) to get exactly what I want out of my darling hubby. Hehehe...

Ok... I am stalling and writing rubbish, when what I actually want to write is: THE OFFER ON THE HOUSE IS ALL GOOD TO GO AND WE ARE SOON TO BE HOME OWNERS!!!

So excited! I've already started planning where the furniture will go, what veggies to plant and what sort of house-warming to have ;-) Yeeha! Our first house. Our house... in the middle of our street... Can't get that song out of my head.

On that happy (ecstatic, over the moon, joful etc.) note, here's a Friday funny for you. One of my favourite C&H strips:

I had loads of pen-friends growing up and so wish my kids could experience that, but with cell-phones, e-mail etc, it is highly unlikely I suppose...

Congrats on the house!!! You must be SO excited :-)

Love the cartoon!

YAY! for being a home owner. That is really wonderful news.

CONGRATS - I cant wait to be home owner one day - lucky you!!!!

Getting letters is always so awesome. I love snail mail.

The cartoon is great. Cyanide and Happiness cartoons crack me up with the warped sense of humour.

honestly, i would love to do it, but i just KNOW i'll never bring myself to sit down and write a letter... i'm just too damn lazy.

when i was a kid i tried about half a dozen times to have a pen pal... i would write them, they would write back, and then id never write them back. end of pen pals..

CONGRATS!!!!!! I can imagine you must be over the moon!
I also had tons (over 100) pen pals when I was a kid, and I loved it! It is SO nice getting letters in the post. So beats emails and SMS's, you're right.
