Today I received 3 letters in the post. 2 of them were bills (boo!) but 1 of them was a lovely, personal letter, and more than that, in fact it was a lovely. personal letter sent from overseas (hooray!)
The reason for the letter will come in another future post, but I did want to briefly remark on the unusual addition to my letter: a bright yellow seal courtesy of UK Customs.
I don’t know what it was that was so very suspicious about this particular unassuming, white envelope from the Netherlands, but the yellow label tells me that they opened my post, checked it, and then re-sealed it.
Obviously the contents passed the test and my letter was sent on to me. So pleased. Confused, but pleased. And glad that the UK Customs folk are working hard.
In summary: approved mail.
