So here in the country there is no postie. Instead, we are now the owners of a PO Box and go to the post office to get our mail.
Here's the Capella Post Office. It's such a gorgeous little building. It's the best looking building in town too. And Eileen, the post office owner is just the nicest lady. She remembered my name the first time and has made me so welcome. She's always up for a chat and a wealth of information about the local area.
Usually Natalie and I check the mail on one of our daily walks - from school, or to the library or the pool. I don't go everyday. It's a bit of a letdown when there's nothing there so we generally just go every few days. And if there's a parcel (from all our recent internet shopping it's a bonus!) This was the boys' first time at the post office and they thought it was just wonderful!
