Comment: Adorable stationary!! I will write back (if that's okay) soon! And thank you for the tea!
Response: Hi Al,
Glad you liked. I received your letter for the October Penpals too. I'll write soon - unless you want to write first? As your letter is a bit more involved, I'm happy to reply to that one then go from there?
Comment: Your card got here so fast! I'm going to get s map of England so I can plot all my swaps there. You mentioned a longer commute, what distance would that be? I find people's sense of distance and time vary by where they're from.
Response: Wow! It did get there quick - it makes me happy as I've been having trouble with the mail recently so it's great that at least one arrives lol. My new commute would be 90 minutes each way without traffic. Yes, it does depend I think.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful hot air balloon notecard! A 39-page long letter? Wow. That is amazing! I struggle to make mine 2-3 pages. ;D Good on you for learning Spanish! I lived in Valencia, Spain for a full year back in my university days. I miss it terribly and have been thinking about going back.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I'm glad you liked my notecard. :-)
Comment: I loved everything! Thank you so much! I've never used a goal notebook and I will definitely be making it my mission to use it :) The skin care items are great and smell amazing! Thanks so much! It brought a smile to my face :)
Response: Oh I'm so glad it reached you and you liked it. I love the Elemis brand - enjoy! Hope you're having a great week.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, so good to get a swap from someone else who is UK based, I think we need a UK group :) Like you I always plan trips, visits for the weekend but more often than not real life gets in the way :) hope you got the washing machine sorted. And btw - Halloween - great movie. :)
Response: Glad it arrived and you liked it. Real life definitely gets in the way. I hope you get many weekend breaks before the end of the year and even more next year.
Comment: WOW! MIckie! What a fantastic weekend that was! I'm glad you enjoyed Cabaret. I saw the movie with Maximilian Schell when I was very young. I love it! My mom brought me up on musicals. Stephen Fry! That must have been really good. Have you watched Fry and Laurie? I've only seen a few, they are funny. Love British Comedies.. mostly older ones though, like Butterflies and Good Neighbors (I think it was called The Good Life originally). Brighton! How wonderful! It really is a fun, vibrant area - as you pointed out. Never seen it in the summer, bet it is even more more lively then! I have a friend that used to live in Ferring, next to Worthing. Love the area! You are right... so calming! I am so glad you had such a wonderful weekend! You have proved to the world that you don't need to go far to have a wonderful holiday. Thank you for sharing your weekend with me. I hope if I get you for a weekend partner, that I have something interesting to tell you! BTW: lovely notepaper! Wish they made it like that here! Extra Hearts for your wonderful letter... <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Response: Oh, thank you, so kind :-).
No, I've not seen Fry and Laurie, but it's on my Netflix list so I'm sure I will soon. Yes, it's "The Good Life" here and also one of my favourites. If you can get it, I also recommend "Open All Hours" (the original, not "Still Open All Hours" which is a remake more recently. That one's ok, but not the original).
Have a great weekend :-)
Comment: Hi Mickie, thank you for your lovely note about your weekend. I have heard good things about Blinded By The Light and I about Wild. I saw it a while back and. Thought it was a roller coaster ride of emotions packed in that film. What perseverance she had. Happy swapping.
Comment: Thanks for the swap of your interesting answers.
My wife keeps buying candles and not burning them. I cleaned out the storage shelves in the closet last winter and came up with over fifty that had never had a match touch their wick. They are now organized so she can find what she wants, depending upon the season, and won't buy any more of the scents she already has three to five of.
Response: Thanks :-)
Haha, yes, I know that feeling! Enjoy the wonderful fragrances.
Comment: I'm so happy for you that you finally got a few decorations started. Tiny bits here and there finished. I can't wait to have a house of my own to decorate. I love the cute kitty on the front of the card! Thank you for telling me about ur weekend!
Comment: Wow!! I wish I had seen this movie! His analysis was very interesting and insightful. I'm a lover of Harry Potter books, it's my favorite! I've read it a lot more than 7 times, but I confess that I don't love the movies so much, although I like it a lot. Thanks for your message. It was very nice to read it!

Comment: Thanks for the interesting story and such beautiful letter set! I really love that you visited museums, and even, bravely went to red-light district. My friend just brought me a stroopwafel last Sunday upon returning from his study in Netherlands, and I agree that it's very tasty. I wish I could go there soon!
Comment: I am so sorry to be late rating this! I received your awesome letter last week and it got placed in with pen pal letters to answer. I just now opened it and realized it was my swap! I loved reading about your weekend, healthy eating kick and cleaning out the death trap closet :) And good luck in your job search!
Response: Thanks Ilyse. I'm glad you like.
Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your answers with me! I loved that your travel answer had to do with time and not so much places. I didn't think of that when I answered. Also, watching movies for free when invisible seems like a good one too! And selling your invisibility skills was even better. There's a money maker! Thanks again!
Response: Glad you liked :-) Have a great weekend!
Comment: Thank you for sending a postcard from your trip to Brighton! I am grateful you took the extra step and read my profile to write my postcard.. I was not able to ready any books this month yet. I need to get started soon.
Response: You're welcome. Enjoy the books when you're able. I'm currently reading "The Outsider" by Stephen King - I recommend it if you like thrillers that keep you guessing.
