  1. I bet your house has seemed quiet this week. It seems like she enjoyed herself, which is brilliant. #MySundayPhoto

    • It was very quiet! She had an amazing time, though 🙂

  2. How lovely! But did it arrive while they were on the residential or on their return? That’s the thing with postcards, you never can tell when they’ll turn up!

    • It arrived the day before she got home! She was careful to post it early on in her trip so we would get it in time 🙂

  3. How lovely – think this would have pushed me over the edge though – residential week was quiet & tough for us, but transformational & amazing for my daughter who loved it – hope yours did too x

    • Just the same for my daughter! She had an amazing time, but it was hard for us without her (and her brother who was away on a different residential at the same time!). x

    • Thanks very much! I know I can hardly write at all any more, my handwriting is appalling!

  4. Aww bless her, she was quite close to Cardiff then, you said she went to West Wales and the Cardiff postcard made me laugh but the Big Pitt is at least quite close by 😉

    • She was due to go to Cardiff on the way home, but they decided to spend more time at the beach as the weather was nice, so they never did get to Cardiff! x

  5. Ah how lovely. I wish ours got to send cards but I suppose they don’t go away for as long. I remember going to France with school and posting off my cards 🙂 glad the trip was a success!

    • Thanks very much. They do encourage kids to send them, and I was upset when neither of my boys sent them when they went on their year 6 residential!

  6. Aaaa I love this!! I didn’t have any sort of communication with my eldest whilst she was a way, would have loved a postcard!

    • They encourage the kids to write home, but neither of my boys did when they were in year 6. My daughter knew this had upset me as a lot of their friends had written, so she made sure she did!

    • Thanks very much, I thought so! x

  7. I bet you were thrilled to receive this! I remember getting my postcard from my daughter on residential last year, although it arrived long after she was back because it didn’t have a stamp.

    • I was really pleased to get it! They tell them to take a stamp away with them so they can write home 🙂

  8. Hi Sarah, it’s nice that postcards are still being sent and it must be nice being told you were missed. I barely got a phone call when my daughter was away!

    • Thanks very much! It was lovely to receive it. At her age, they’re not allowed to make phone calls as it’s too unsettling for them. x

  9. This is so lovely. I always bring my postcards back with me and then hand them to people

    • Thanks very much! Bringing them back isn’t a bad idea as they’re so expensive to post, but I was very pleased to get this 🙂
