The Importance of Being...Posted... thought yesterday was funny?

Well Heckety struck again.


You see the Postbox nearest to school has a bit of a narrow aperture, but since letters tend to be fairly thin its usually fine.

This afternoon after posting a letter rather bulkier than usual I realised half  way down The Mall that I hadn't heard it fall down inside. Now if it had been something boring I would have thought 'stuff it', but it wasn't, it was an envelope of poems written by third class for a competition, very exceedingly ultra important.

Back I went and sure enough I could feel the envelope jammed against the top but couldn't shift it.





I got out pen and paper and wrote a note to the postman to explain that there was a letter jammed against the top of the letterbox, so please could he retrieve it.

And I posted the note.

One tries. One is trying. One is tried.

One is found wanting.

I did exactly the same thing!!! In exactly that same letter box!!! Mine was a nice fat letter to my sister full of crafty bits for cardmaking. It got very badly stuck late one evening and I feared no one would be able to post anything at all the next day because it's not collected until 3pm I think. I had to ring the Post office and let them know 'someone' had got a letter stuck in it and I couldn't post anything!! They sent a man up to unblock it! Woops!!

Well its clearly the post office"s fault but maybe they designed it like that to give me TWO spluttering giggles this morning
