I'm finally back after a long break. 😊
My name is Heidi and I'm housebound due to chronic pain. Postcrossing is a great way for me to at least open a window into the world.
I'm addicted to green and white tea, the colours blue and green, Calvin & Hobbes and The Peanuts. I love dogs (sadly I can't have one) and elephants (I've adopted 3 elephant orphans via Sheldrick Wildlife Trust), plush animals, rubber stamps, things made of paper and fountain pens, rain, snow and cold weather, astronomy, sushi and cinnamon. I'm a huge science fiction fan, especially books and space opera in particular. I like classic cinema and a variety of TV series (Person of Interest, Life on Mars, Futurama, The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger (비밀의 숲), The Orville,…). I enjoy classical music, film scores and (progressive) rock.
I used to work in a bookshop a long, long time ago.
You decide which card to choose, but I appreciate your taking a look at my preferences. A postcard we can both enjoy would be perfection. ♥
Don't know what to write? Recommend a book/author, film, TV series or artist (from your country). Add a drawing. Do we have anything in common? Tell me about one thing you love and why. What is your favourite pastime?
Please note the date and, if you like, the weather. Pretty stamps and extras like bookmarks, tickets, receipts etc. are very welcomed. Beautiful/interesting paper, even just small scraps, would be the delicious cherry on top. :)
Stay Safe & Happy Postcrossing!
