I have really needed this holiday, as I thought I would. I have discovered that it is actually possible to sleep past 6.30am. Even in a hotel room in an uncomfortable bed (it dipped massively in the middle and getting up to one edge was like mountaineering, only on your side). I have also seen... Continue reading

It's interesting for two reasons: it's blue (they're usually red) it's from George V's reign (they're usually from Elizabeth II) A search around tells me that it's blue either because blue was for air mail (although they also had a thing on the...
