Old Letters

I'm in the middle of heavy duty packing (moving to a new flat) but I have to quickly post this one before I stash it away again. Unearthed old treasures, and by that I mean of course old hand-written letters, way before the internet came along and ruined everything!

This lovely letter is around 5+ years old I think (forget what I said about the internet :P.) I used to be the big boss of all the neighborhood kids back home. So naturally when their big boss who teaches them inappropriate songs and make them eat parents-banned products went away, they wrote me relentlessly. I was missed! :)

This one is from a kid called Peka, the then 6 year old son of one of our neighbors.



how are you?

My name is Vanlalpeka

I am six years old

From Peka

(I used to promise them riches and wealth if they wrote me in English, this is one of Peka's attempt to ensure I return home with a Spiderman figure for him. And apparently he'd sent me some sunflower seeds along with the letter.)

Doesn't that warm your heart! I have more, funny ones where they tell me about their cats, or their neighbor's cats, or the dog that lives down the street. I'll share those too if I can find them.

(And my packing is going nowhere! Too many old letters to read...)

Packing! aarggh don't mention that P word! We are moving in a couple of weeks and have a house full of junk accumulated over three years to clean out!

But seriously, old letters are so precious. And unfortunately nomad me has lost all hers :(

Maisek - isn't it! It's a bit sad though because now that he's all grown up he refuses to hang out with in the company of a woman so much anymore lest his friends start calling him a sissy.

Aduh - I am unable to find the old cat letters :(( And those were really really good. Good luck with your packing, I'm all done with mine. Unpacking too. I feel like I should take a vacation just from that move.
