You've got mail

From the first place. 
When I first moved to Norway I got into a bit of a himhum with the mailman. My name wasn't on the mailbox, so why should he deliver my mail there. If I could be so kind and put my name on the mailbox as well. Basically, do it or else! So, I found my old name plate, the one I had gotten at my very first home, and hung it with a piece of string over the mailbox. Problem sorted!

Then I moved to the little red cottage in the Norwegian countryside. I planned to use my name plate again, but somehow I never got round to it. Using a piece of duct tape with my name written on it instead. 

Now I live in town again. And again I have a mailbox, this time sharing with my landlord and his brother. The mailman here must be a lenient one, because my name isn't on the mailbox, yet I still receive my mail and no himhumming from him/her saying I should have my name on it or else...

Today as I got home, there was a new mailbox in the hallway, ready to be installed. And guess what? My name is on it! Proper and all!! 

I need mail now...

    ... will work on that &*>... that's lovely though - did the landlord organise that? No wonder you are happy to stay put!!! YAM xx

    1. The old one was falling apart and held together with tie rips! All the mail was getting wet. This one is a lot sturdier looking at least.

  2. You won't be saying that shortly when all the blogsville cards arrive!!!!!

  3. WooHoo and just in time for your Christmas cards.
    Mom mailed off my international cards on Monday. They will take about a week or more to get there but it is on its way
    Hugs madi and mom

  4. You have just given me a bit of a kickstart to get my international cards posted! Our postman pops the mail through the letterbox so no need for an extra mailbox. Parcels are a different matter. If I'm not home to take delivery I've found them under the car, behind some plants and best of all in the rubbish bin! He always leaves a note to say where he has hidden it though.

  5. OMD OMD THAT is super grrrrreat. All set with your Name and Everythingy.

    WE are THANKFUL to have you as our furends.

  6. The cards will be coming soon!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. Your hint won't work on me. I'm an old curmudgeon. Actually, postage has become so expensive here that I send out as few cards as possible. Last year, I sent email seasonal greetings where I could. Bah humbug, eh? :)

  8. Anvilcloud's comment just made me laugh! Maybe you will motivate me to send out my Christmas cards early this year!

  9. Hi Mara! Good to be back in touch again. You're still in Norway and still blogging. Well done!

  10. Wow,your very own mailbox, that's awesome!
