Hm, I wonder why the landed gentry of the past never wrote SWALLOW on their letters, like WWII soldiers writing SWALK. The mysteries of history.
Anyway, for Xmas I was surprised and pleased to receive some sealing wax from one of my best friends. We used to write to each other all the time when we were teenagers and I briefly lived abroad, and I’m sure I would have said then that my dream was to use sealing wax.
Although I am tempted to start signing off all my reports at work with a golden wax seal, I feel it might send a confusing message so I decided to reserve it for personal use.
I recently went on a brief sojourn to the Americas and decided that postcards would provide an ideal opportunity for trying out my stamp.
