Dear local swimming pool, Yes, it’s me writing to you again. I’m just singing your praises once more – it is so uplifting to swim under clear blue skies and with the odd bird soaring in the air high above. Oh, and the drive there yesterday was wonderful – it was such a clear day that in the distance I could see snow covered mountains.
Dear Women’s Resource Center, I went to a talk about you on Wednesday, and found out what a wonderful facility you are for women (and men) who have suffered from domestic abuse/violence or sexual assault. It’s sad that we should need such a place, but good to know that you exist and can offer such excellent support.
Dear rain, Thank goodness you have decided to stop for a while. I see you are on your way back for the weekend, but a few days without you has been lovely.
Dear Amazon delivery person, Why didn’t you ring the bell, or knock on the door, when you came with a parcel on a day when the rain was torrential? I do find it very convenient that you leave parcels either by the door, or just inside the gate, if I am out but I wish you’d ring the bell too because often I am actually in! Luckily on that very wet day you had the foresight to wrap the box safely in a plastic bag.
Dear cyclist wearing dark clothes on a dull and gloomy day, You didn’t even have lights on your bike – you are just asking for trouble. I think you must be a British rider here on holiday and haven’t cottoned on to the fact that everyone here tends to wear bright clothes and often have lights on their bikes even when the sun is shining.
Have a good Friday – I hope your weather isn’t too wet/snowy/chilly/hot/dry.
