A letter to my husband on his birthday…

Dear Nigel, Today is your birthday and we’ll spend it with one another, as well as all of your children, and of course your mum too. Whilst our girls are in school, we’ll go out for some lunch and watch you open your presents. Although, to be honest, I have to admit that you’re one of the hardest people to buy for. Despite the fact that we’ve been together for over 12 years, and married for 5, I still struggle to think of things to buy for you. That’s not because I don’t know you well though. It’s because you’re… [Read More]

Lapland Mailroom Letter Review

Dear Barbie

Dear Barbie, I’m not quite sure what’s happened, but I feel I have to write to you. You see I have something important to say and I kind of feel like I need to be honest with you. Growing up I loved my Barbie dolls. I’d dress them in different clothes, swap their shoes and make them do various tasks such as shopping for clothes, getting their hair done or have their nails painted. I even had a Barbie disco house that played music and I absolutely loved it. I wanted to be Barbie! So what if I didn’t have… [Read More]

Lapland Mailroom Personalised Santa Letter Review

This year is the first Christmas that our twin girls are more aware of what’s going. They’ll be three early next year, so we’ve been talking to them about Christmas and Santa. They’ve both made letters for Santa by cutting out pictures of toys from a catalogue and sticking them to a piece of paper before drawing pictures on them too. We then put them into an envelope and posted them into our home made Santa’s Postbox. I’ve told them both that Santa will take their letters and then write them a reply. Luckily for us, we received two letters… [Read More]

A letter to my 13 year old self

Me around 13 years old I recently read a post by Nicola (who blogs at Nicola…Life Through My Eyes) which I found really interesting. Nicola wrote a letter to her 15 year old self and it got me thinking about what I would say to myself now that I am older. I thought I would write a letter to my 13 year old self because at that age I found myself going through a range of different emotions and challenges. Here goes: Dear Emily, You are 13 years old and have the weight of the world on your shoulders. You are… [Read More]
