day 7:: postbox
In the snow last week, now melted, the postbox on the corner looked like something from a Victorian greetings card and it is, I'll admit, a rather fetching little postbox with its decorated top and finial. It is something of a fraud though. There was no postbox there at all when we moved in many years ago and when local residents lobbied for one, they demanded that the one provided should be in keeping with the local architecture. Royal Mail must have been feeling flush at the time as so we got our pretty little postbox.
Our first Christmas card arrived today. Which reminds me...
