I have just spent much of this afternoon writing out letters to verious organisations re the heritage railway I am researching – and filling in lots of overdue subscription renewals for various organisations I am a member of.
They now sit on my desk, all nicely prepared in smart envelopes just waiting for the stamps.
There is a problem – despite finding two whole books of stamps in my recent clearout only last week, I now cannot find a single stamp in the house.
What is it about books of stamps that they seem to vanish the very moment you need them, only to leap out and blow rasperberries at you the moment you come back from the shops with more stamps.
I am sure there is a conspiracy going on.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
