presents in the post

This morning I somehow missed the clank of the letter box, but I soon spotted the post lying on the mat, two letters actually - one for me and one for D. I instantly recognised the handwriting on mine it belongs to my lovely friend Martha. Martha lives a long way away, in Ethiopia (I miss her a lot).

Inside I found this little package. It's a little paper bag, made out of old homework sheets (this is recycling Addis style). I think Martha buys eggs in the little bags (but maybe something else this time).


And inside, I found these, Ethiopian stamps - how cool! I like them a lot don't you? My favourites are the Addis Ababa city monuments and I also love the one with the blood bags on - celebrating 75 years of the Ethiopian Red Cross. 

Thank you Marf x
