I received my first piece of mail today. I can’t tell you how much this pleased me.
Sure, it’s just an application for a National Insurance number (the UK equivalent of a social security number), but it was still so nice to open up my mailbox (an activity that I always relish at home or abroad) and see a letter with my name on it.
A little voice inside of me said, “Oh hey, look! You do belong here after all. This is your letter, by the way.”
