Red Letterbox Day!

I am finding myself trying to seek out bright colour, in dull and dingy January, and when I do find some I feel very cheered. Especially by my local post box which has just been repainted. There's even a bit of a red splodge on the wall next to it - oops. All very nice and cheerful though. It's almost enough to make me want to start sending letters again, instead of emails!

Ruby has written a guest post today on the blog of her good friend and writing partner Karen, aka Almost Mrs Average of The Rubbish Diet. A link to the post is here: Ruby's Rubbish Surprise: reporting live from York. Do pop over and see my post about York's bins - or the lack of them, inspired by my post on this blog yesterday!

En France les boites aux lettres sont jaunes, je me demande si chaque pays a sa couleur.
On dirait qu'elle va nous parler.

In France the mailboxes are yellow, I wonder if every country has its own color.
It seems that we will talk.

I love red letterboxes! I hope they last for a long time and not disappear like the red phones boxes! Ciao. Antonella

We have dull red ones here. Such iconic items. I'm jealous of yours having a lick of paint.
