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.
