The old address
I've been having a bit of bother with my mail lately. Ever since I moved really. Basically: I am not getting any! I get junk mail and I got a total of two postcards (one from Pepperfly and one from Debby, thank you), but I think they might have just slipped through unnoticed by the postal services. All other mail goes right back to where it came from apparently. 

I was fed up with it. I want mail. So, I went to the post office today. And asked why I didn't get any mail. Turned out that just telling people my new address doesn't do it here in Norway. Nooooo, I needed to fill out a form so the postal services knows where I live now. 

When I first moved to Norway, I never had to fill out any form. All my mail just arrived. Without any problem. Yes, the postperson wrote me a note to tell me I needed to have my name on the mailbox as well, but as soon as I complied, it was fine. No more notes and all the mail I wanted. 

Now I promised Pepperfly to put my name on the mailbox as well. Unfortunately I have lost my lovely sign. Well, I know it's somewhere in the house, but I don't quite know where somewhere is. It might be anywhere!

I will have a look again tomorrow and then stick it on the mailbox so the postperson knows I live there!


  1. Hurry, hurry, hurry! I don't want to send you three times the same card, okay. (Posted the card again yesterdag.) It's not that I am running out of stamps any time soon, but still...would be nice to stick some stamps on a lovely NEW card!

  2. We have to pick up our mail at the post office. We have a box, with a key, Box 1366, and every day (or so) one of us has to go fetch the mail. It's a nice walk for Dick and Lindy, and she loves the post office because there are people there who pet her.
    Do you have to have a lovely sign, or would a piece of paper and some tape do until you find it?
    Just wondering.

  3. I guess every country has its odd ways.

  4. Mail ? It never arrives ! My friend has sent me a postcard from France a month ago, maybe it's no in China. I sent two Christmas cards to the States and they arrived in February !
    No mail for me anymore only emails. It's strange that invoices ALWAYS arrive !

  5. Your welcome! Yes we have to do change of address anytime we move.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
