Ooh ... it's been quite quiet around here lately ... I've had some very welcome feedback on Going Postal so far - thank you! - but I have been wondering if everyone's completely sick of postal themed 'stuff'... or else if I've made a mistake by launching this series in Autumn ... but, if it's OK with you ...
... I'm going to blithely convince myself that you're all just busy thinking up something post related to share soon and that's why no one's around.
[Anyone who read my Push-Up Bra Blogging series - especially the Kenny Rogers Approach - will understand that I'm merrily aware of the ups + downs of blogging ... so, have no fear ... I'll survive, I won't take it personally I'll just install a stiff upper lip and carry on regardless!]
So in the spirit of keeping-calm-and-blogging-on here's the next set of 7 of my 30 Postcards to Myself ...

My story of my rambling brambling adventures was meant to be my 'Simply A Moment' moment this month, but, alas, amid hours of blogging for Going Postal ... I couldn't find time to squeeze it in. Instead I incorporated it into my September Month in Numbers earlier this week because, seeing as how it [almost] involved Spiderman ... it was a tale worth telling. ;-)

I struggled to encapsulate the events of this day into a clear lesson that didn't sound negative ... and eventually I landed on this. I'm not easily taken aback but what I learned about someone [no one close, don't worry!] actually, genuinely stunned me:
September 20th 2013:
Let me explain ...
... as James returned from buying a car-parking ticket at the library he muttered to me 'Don't turn round too quickly, but that man at the machine is dressed strangely'. So I peeked in the wing mirrors and that's when it came back to me: the library was hosting a Star Wars day ... and I'd forgotten ... and planned to spend a morning browsing the shelves in peace.
And so ... after making our way in, past Princess Leia, Chewbacca and a Storm Trooper, and entering the library to the strains of the Imperial March, I discovered that all of the fiction shelves had been pushed aside to make way for assorted Jedi etc. And I just couldn't get in to browse for something new to read.
Clearly the Rebel Alliance aren't big Lit Fic fans ...
See you tomorrow with another posty-themed post.
