I miss the more intimate nature of handwritten letters/card etc too. What amazes me is how far my handwriting motor skills have fallen over the last ten years and how tired my hands get when I write. These days, my writing looks like that of a drunken, epileptic ape. Secondly, I did a course at work recently where the exam had to be handwritten. I cramped up within about 10 minutes, it was ridiclous. Apart from the occasional form/birthday card, I haven't written anything by hand for years.

I'm impressed! After donkeys' years of typing everything and handwriting as little as possible, like many people I now type much faster than I write by hand.

I've recently started to learn Greek; that means a whole new alphabet to learn and lots of handwriting. Oh, it's so hard! I hope you have lots of pleasure though. It really is a treat getting hand-written letter through the door!

Thank you for my postcard, Scott. My handwritten reply to you is even now in a Royal Mail van somewhere

This is a wonderful idea! I started a Facebook fanpage called "Save the U.S. Postal Service by Writing More Letters." There are many like-minded people out there. Best of luck with your project!

Thank you for my ladybird winter postcard, off we go to spot the animals!

What a good idea. All the best with it. You can certainly drop me a line whenever.

I wish I had found this sooner! I totally would have talent you up on this! I'm part of PostCrossing and in the process of joining the Letter Writers Alliance. I love writing letters and they usually end up long winded, but that's half the fun (next to picking out stationary and stamps). Anyway, I think this was an awesome idea. How did it turn out for you?

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : The Illusionist

    The Illusionist
    This one had passed me by but I am glad I caught it. (****)

  • : La Grande Illusion

    La Grande Illusion
    I did enjoy this but one of the greatest films of all time? I think not. (***)

  • : The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Watched this again. Still amazing. (*****)

  • : What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape
    Watched this for the first time in ages. Still pretty good. Leo is excellent in it. His best performance? Perhaps. (****)

  • : Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

    Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
    Long story but I watched this weird and very dark festive movie a month after Christmas and I loved it. (****)

  • : Diva

    Diva
    Been meaning to watch this ever since I saw Betty Blue back in the 80s but only just got round to it. I feared it would be all style over substance but it actually turned out to be a pretty good crime thriller. (****)

  • : Brothers

    Brothers
    Subtle and brilliantly acted. Liked it a lot more than I expected to. (****)

  • : Whiplash

    Whiplash
    An OK movie elevated above the norm by two excellent performances. (***)

  • : Timecrimes

    Timecrimes
    Great bit of timey-wimey nonsense. Liked it a lot. (****)

  • : More Than Honey

    More Than Honey
    Interesting documentary about bees. Didn't blow me away but kept me watching. (***)

  • : Happy-Go-Lucky

    Happy-Go-Lucky
    I thought this was going to irritate me but I ended up being quite charmed by it. (****)

  • : Our Day Will Come

    Our Day Will Come
    Bonkers road movie in which Vincent Cassel goes off on one in revenge for discrimination against redheads. Or something. (**)

  • : La Strada

    La Strada
    Supposedly Fellini's first masterpiece but it was painted with too broad brushstrokes to work its charm on me. The off-putting dubbed dialogue and sound effects didn't help either. (**)

  • : Birdman

    Birdman
    Inspired, ambitious, bonkers. (****)

  • : Inglourious Basterds

    Inglourious Basterds
    Only just got round to watching this. It is ridiculous but lots of fun. Also, an amazing about of subtitled dialogue for a major American film. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)
