Apparently no-one writes letters anymore but judging by the queues outside my Post Office lots of us are still sending letters - it can't ALL be e-bay and Boden returns, can it? Either way, I found a good way to avoid the stamp-buying queue, look what you can order from the Royal Mail website - personalised stamps! I ordered these with V's photograph to use for all our thank you letters. They're called Smilers and you can upload any image you like using their website and then choose one of their designs to go alongside your image. As well as the New Baby ones, they've also got Thank You, Love (which we used when Z was born), Happy Birthday and lots of others. Guaranteed to get your mail opened with excitement and really sweet for a special occasion.
