If you are of a certain age the image above will mean nothing to you.
I received this card from a very dear friend this week. Seeing her handwriting on the envelope was enough to change my day, seeing the perfect image on the card just made me really laugh.
I made many tapes for friends once upon a time, and anyone who sent one in return you should know that I still have them all! I also have a car so old that it has a tape deck. I am thinking of getting out my felix the cat suitcase where they are all kept and having a listen...but I am worried about what my 17 - 24 year old self may have been saying. Maybe there are some things best kept in the 1990s (especially New Kids on The Block, Ms Herbie!)
These tapes were when mobile phones were barely around and the cost of using them was extreme. Phone calls on student funds were not possible, so making a tape was like having a week long conversation with your besties that were studying around the country at different universities or jobs.
I loved them. Always will.
Do you have any handmade tapes?
