Restarting that old hobby...

#1 Postby Zophiel » Sat Oct 06, 2007 11:17 am

Hello Everyone,

I have never actually lived in Devon, but ever since I was about 3 (seriously) my parents used to take me on holiday at least once a year, maybe twice, down to Devon and Dartmoor and used to take me along letterboxing!

I cant remember how many we got but it was a lot, and over the 500 mark (Including a fair deal of pub ones!). However, sadly the yearly holidays to Dartmoor kind of had to stop when I went to Uni and I havn't had a chance to go back for a few years.

However, I really miss letterboxing and Devon, and am hoping to start comming back again for holidays and re start the hobby, along with dragging my boyfriend along and getting him into it too.

I cant wait to restart! My parents Stamp name/Signature used to be 'Dover Dingbats' and when I was old enough to get my own stamp I choose 'Spyke' a cute hedgehog. Now I think I may get a new one made of an angel...
