Funny letters live

I’ve been aware of the Letters Live project for quite a while and have seen occasional letters read by actors. They were quite beautiful lengthy love letters mostly but the other day another one popped up for me, a letter written to an insurance company. I wasn’t in the mood for long letters but this one was just under 4 minutes, so I clicked on it and it just made me laugh. I spent a short amount of time watching a few other humourous letters being read and thought I’d share those here as well. I’m sure there are many more, I just stuck to these few shorter ones before moving on to other things. So, if you too are in the mood for a few quick smiles, watch these.

I don’t know Fred Allen, but apparently he was a comedian and this is the letter that made me laugh first…

This one’s a bit bizarre but very amusing…

I love me some Olivia Colman, I already smile when I just see her…

The age old debate of cats versus dogs, read by several actors and one politician…

A short and very clear letter from 1913 written by a suffragette…

And another bitingly sarcastic one by another suffragette (and the wife of Winston Churchill) from 1912…

A nice little interlude, no? Now back to other business…

Smiles of the day

Receiving a lovely letter plus gorgeous notebook from Guylty in the post this morning (thank you again, Guylty!) and eating chocolate sprinkles on toast for lunch…

Reliving Richard Armitage at the Newcastle Film Festival memories, due to a Twitter post from the lovely Christine…

And additional smiles from Ellen…

And last but not least: our front garden was ‘sinking’. If you walked up to our front door you were in danger of breaking your neck because the path was so uneven. So, we had the path and the garden elevated with sand (underneath the path) and extra soil for the garden. Mr Esther had the day off today so he and mini-me bought some extra pots for plants alongside our path. There’s a little tree in the pots and lavender. I love lavender.

Our ‘new’ front garden definitely makes me happy as well. This is a good start to the weekend. πŸ™‚

Resignation letters

I am so behind in blogging world, but I didn’t want to miss another ‘Mach Was’ and I see the deadline is today! The latest theme posted by Die PΓΆ is to do someting with post / mail. I didn’t have any inspiration until now… As I have been in full on resignation mode of late, I have been occupying myself somewhat with resignation letters. I even helped my colleague P with hers a little bit (she and I are leaving on the same day!). She and I went the serious route with our resignation letters but I came across some fun ones, short and to the point, online. I very much understand the sentiment in these. πŸ™‚ I don’t remember the sources, but here is a collection:

And I’m thinking maybe my colleague and I should do something like this when we leave:

The dance doesn’t have anything to do with post, but I thought it would end this post on an extra cheerful note. πŸ˜‰
