Diary of a Postie

Invitations.  There are LOTS!.  Status update:

  • Early invites to overseas family/friends (20 off): 100% complete, sent back in June 2009
  • General invites to everyone else (300+ off): in progress – 70%

We chose to hand-deliver most of them, as we won’t bump into everyone, and we could save on postage if many live nearby and in the same area.  Areas visited:

  • Vermont South / Mitcham / Blackburn / Donvale
  • Glen Waverley / Forest Hill / Wantirna / Wantirna South
  • Scoresby / Rowville
  • Hawthorn / Glen Iris / Malvern East
  • Mount Waverley / Ashwood

After approximately 500kms of travelling this weekend, here are the top 5 interesting (annoying?) things we encountered:

  • (5.) Numbers that don’t quite match the ones on the opposite side of the road… so the GPS led us to a place one block away!
  • (4.) Rowville is MASSIVE!!… so the checkpoints were about 10mins apart (shortest route!)
  • (3.) Locked mailboxes…  didn’t want to bend/fold the cards so we had to (inconspicuously) leave them under doormats.
  • (2.) Mailboxes within security area… do regular posties have a pass to enter?
  • (1.) WRONG ADDRESSES! …they apparently moved without letting us know! >.<!!!

Nevertheless, it was time spent together – what an adventure!  Our trip continues this week and probably next weekend too! ^_^
