This envelope I choose for the milkman. I know its an odd choice but lately he's been going on holiday which he's never done before in all the years he's delivered our milk. His notes look like they have been written on a typewriter, they have mistakes and smear marks which in my mind confirms it... so I won't at all expect an e-mail from him telling me he picked it up.
I almost missed him as I was upstairs wrapping a package to post when I heard the door. Luckily the milkman loves to chat to my mum asking about the family, their health etc... he's always been like that and we've got used to his morning knock. Whilst he was chatting to my mum, I slipped out the front door and ran around to the back (it must have looked so comical as I can't run), I quickly shoved it somewhere in the back of his van before he came and ran again. I was back inside and sitting down when he actually did. I then panicked a little that maybe it wasn't in secure enough and when he would be driving around it will fly out but hopefully he will spot it before then. I wish I could have taken a photo of where I left it but there wasn't time.
Hopefully my post card is sloppy enough with appreciation.
Do you buy or have your milk delivered?
