Ever since I first bought a Filofax nearly 30 years ago I've always carried some writing paper with me incase I needed to leave a note through some ones letterbox if they were not at home!
I find letter writing quite relaxing. It is nice to get away from a screen, kill all the distractions and focus your mind and attention on writing to a friend somewhere in the world. There is the pleasant surprise when you receive a letter too.
I created my own writing paper with the address details at the head of the page and punched it to fit an A5 organiser. I actually set up one of my A5's just for this task, it was useful to keep previous letters filed and a supply of paper and stamps to hand in the one place together with a pen. I will most probably do the same again.
Emma contacted me the other day and asked me about the idea of setting up a pen pal exchange. I don't think she was aware of the old group, but I've not heard from anyone for 2 years or so.
So Emma has set up a new group on Facebook to facilitate putting people in contact with each other so they can then exchange addresses and start written correspondence again.
Please feel free to join the group: Philofaxy Penpals and introduce yourself.
For those of you who are not on Facebook, but would still like to take part we will work out some way of sharing your details with the group so you don't feel left out.
So let us get writing folks.
