How to post a letter for Moleskine exchange...
On Monday I posted Anna Denises Moleskine to Olya. By itself no problem.
But you don't know how pudding-headed I can be. I bought some stamps, I knew that the postage to Russia amounts 4,50 Euro. So I bought one stamp for 3,90 Euros and one for 50 Cent, put both onto the letter and posted it. On my way home something seemed to be strange, and the scales fell from my eyes: 3,90 + 0,50 = 4,40! Damn! I went back to the post office and asked if they could open the letter box, but they couldn't. Nobody had the key. So I drove again at 2 p.m. when the letter box should be emptied. The postwomen came a little bit too late, I got nervous because of the traffic wardens (didn't have enough loose cash)... told her my problem, at first she didn't want to help me because she was in a hurry, but at least she emptied the letter box in a way that I could see all the letters... and I could fish it out and put the missing 10 Cent Stamp onto the letter and posted it again.
What I want to tell you: Olya, I posted your next letter. And don't you dare to laugh about me! ;-)))
