Well, it’s been a chequered few days.
I’ve struggled with technology in various ways, but am managing to get round the problems in a variety of ways (even if I did fall asleep before posting last night!)
I’ve put photos up for the Scone post, as I said last night, and I’ve now put photos on the enamelled coin post. With any luck I’ll get some on the Harlow Carr post next. That might be tomorrow as the netbook doesn’t make things easy.
I’ll keep plugging away and next week I’ll try to get my laptop in for repair.
Moan, moan, moan, etc…
Today’s photo (which I already used on the enamelled coin post) shows a parcel I prepared for posting today – every stamp ends with half a penny, a coin that was withdrawn in 1984, In other words, all the stamps are at least 35 years old. The fact that we are now using them on envelopes indicates they may not have been a great investment.
Stamps from 35 years ago…
The William Caxton stamp is actually from 1976 – 43 years ago. A lot has happened since then. But not to the stamp – it just lay there in an album and did nothing until I pulled it from a packet, licked the back and stuck it on an envelope. It’s now on its way to London, and probably to a bin.
