Gemma is thinking about starting up her 43things again
When I moved house a few months ago I was going through my things and came across so many lovely letters and notes. From friends, ex-boyfriends, family. They kind of stop about 8 years or so ago … I think that’s where we all started emailing rather than writing.
How sad will it be in the future to have no love letters, no cheery letters from friends etc.
For my birthday a couple of years ago, my cousin sent me copies of all the letters I’d sent her in my teens. (We wrote to each other every week). She’s bound them in a folder that she’d made. It was like reading a diary of my teens … it was the best birthday present I’ve ever received.
So – I’m going to start writing to my friends and family.
