The Morning Mail [Oct. 17th, 2015|10:40 am]
Tony Grist
My mother's mail consists almost entirely of catalogues, advertising and appeals from charities. Going through it with her paper knife used to make her feel connected and still in charge- but now it just frets her. She hands me a catalogue for womenswear and says, "I don't know what this is. Aileen can deal with it."

They're a pain. My mother supports several charities- all of which keep writing to ask for more.

And then there's The Countryside Alliance....

My father used to be inundated with charity appeals too. I did make a huge effort to get him removed from as many mailing lists as possible when he moved into the care home, but I suspect the new owners of his bungalow will still be getting some appeals now that I've finally let the mail re-direction lapse.

My mother can no longer read these things- so she hands them over to us and we bin them.

There's a company that still sends a catalogue to my father- who's been dead for a decade. We've spoken them to about it but they take no notice.
