Look in my Letterbox #10

I'm a bit late this week but here I am ready to join in with my favourite linky.

It's been a pretty quiet week post wise at the Monkey House. We've got quite a few replies to send out which could explain it. I've had four penpal letters though from Essex, Dorchester, London and Blackpool and Monkey had a letter from her penpal in York.

Monkey also received a toucan box this week. They're a subscription box of crafts for kids. They're aimed at children aged 3-8 so she's still a bit young really but she loves the painting and sticking. They're great for a rainy day, and living in Manchester we have plenty of those. Yesterday was definitely a Toucan Box kind of day and we had lots of fun making a dream catcher and a wind sock.

I'm off now to reply to some letters so hopefully we'll have more to tell you about next week.

Have you had any nice post this week? I'd love to hear about it.


  1. We had lovely post from you! We must reply to you and monkey xx

    1. We'll look forward to that - you're our faves! But sssshhhh, don't tell anyone! xx

  2. Hi Janet, I do like getting nice post, but rarely do. I have a childhood friend who I exchange letters with, but that's only about once a year as we are both so hopeless.

    It must be nice receiving mail from penpals, but I just don't have the discipline to write back in a reasonable amount of time.


    1. Even once a year is lovely! I've had penpals for almost 30 years now. My discipline varies but I do get back to everyone

  3. Those Toucan boxes are great for the kids I find :)
