When I was little I loved to collect stamps and I had hundreds dating from Queen Victoria to the present day. According to Wikipedia there are 200 million stamp collectors worldwide. That’s a lot of stamps!
I loved the colours, shapes and pictures of them all and I can remember day-dreaming about the stories they would tell if they could talk; of the things they’d seen on their journey to reach me!
This week the Royal Mail launches a series of stamps that feature one of the best story tellers; Roald Dahl.
I’d like to get my youngest into stamp collecting and as he loves Roald Dahl I wonder if this is a good time to get him started?
You can buy the postcards and stamps and all sorts of Roald Dahl stuff on the Royal Mail website http://www.royalmail.com/roald-dahl They look great and the first day covers are franked in Great Missenden where Roald Dahl used to live and where the museum is.
I can’t wait to see the stamps – the website says they are, ‘Gloriumptiously collectable’!
