What a cool postal idea, postman Cornelius has been set a task.
He has been sent 11p by CiCi Snaggletooth, with this 11p he must buy an item and then send that item on to another postie and that postie could be you!
I can't wait to see the outcome.
Loook at these cool sunglasses sent by our Gerty, they look very protective.
They are from a cool little website called Honksville.com

Some lucky postwoman woke up to this little chap one morning.

Someone received this lovely dead butterfly this weekend. there are so many symbolic meanings for a butterfly, after a very half hearted search for these meanings I found this:

There are many symbolic meanings associated with the butterfly.

The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. In this culture butterflies have also become representative of young men in love.

In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. Many Japanese families use the butterfly in the family crest design.

Germany has a very unique belief about butterflies. As butterflies can often be found hovering about milk pails or butter churns, they have become associated with witches trying to steal the cream. The German word for butterfly is "Schmetterling", which is actually derived for the Czech word "Smetana" which means "cream".

There are many links with butterflies in mythology from all over the world, many of which, in particular Greek mythology, link butterflies to the human soul. The Ancient Greeks also considered butterflies as the souls of those who had passed away.

In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". This was also the name for Eros' human lover and when the two figures are depicted they are often surrounded by butterflies.

In one of the Russian dialects, butterflies are referred to as "dushuchka" which is a derivative of the word "dusha" also meaning soul.

There is also an Irish saying that refers to the symbolic meaning of butterflies. This saying is: "Butterflies are souls of the dead waiting to pass through purgatory".

There is a small town in Mexico that also associate butterflies with souls. It is to this town that Monarch Butterflies migrate every year, around the holiday known as the Day of the Dead. The people of this town see these butterflies as the returning souls of the deceased.


I love that this butterfly does not bring good luck but doesn't bring you bad luck if you don't hold it in your left hand. lovely

Anyway another beautiful post!

Postwoman Schmitt was extremely excited when someone sent here this!
She sent a fellow postie a picture of Paris so they replied with this: a ticket to Paris and a map with places of interest circled.
Unfortunately the Ticket was a fake and it was all a flipping joke
Ohhh poor postwoman schmitt.
Maybe someone out there will buy you a real ticket one day, one day.
At least you won't need to buy a map when you get there.

This is the CIS tower from manchester. Construction started in 1959 and was completed in 1962. In 2006 the building was fit with 7,000 solar panels making it Europe's largest vertical solar array. So there!
I got sent this postcard and I bloody love it. Next time you go to manchester go and visit it. In fact maybe I might send someone there as a postal trip. Ooooooooo
