Another communication LO
Loads of journalling on this one, the theme was old and new methods of comms.
Journalling; A weekly phone call on Sundays and a letter home weekly were the order of the day in the 80's. Letters would also arrive from grandparents and other relatives and friends. Calls were quite expensive so they were kept short, until I started working in telephone exchanges when we could make weekly calls home evenings and weekends. The blueys were always very welcome though.
Everyone would send postcards from their holidays, now we're lucky if we get 3 a year. Letters are rarely written, mainly for condolences or a round robin at Christmas. Official letters are always typed now.
Friends n famly rcv txts now, short msgs wiv abbrns n odd splngs
Friends reunited, Forces reunited, FB + email re-kindle friendships and email keeps us in touch throughout the world.
Email is often preferable to the phone as it's inobtrusive + won't interrupt mealtimes.
Skype keeps us in touch with DS2 at Uni but DS1 hasn't mastered it yet.
A few recent cards too;
Nieces birthday


Jake's b'day, I'm nearly out of this paper now LOL


My little bro, I've been a bit short on the imagination and they don't know this is the 3rd card that's v similar ;)
