Greetings from Wales, a part of the United Kingdom. I do not live in England, although I was born there.
I am in my 40s, married and we have a son who is a teenager. He has started stamp collecting. I used to collect stamps as a child. Also, my son is a member of Postcrossing, although he doesn't send many cards.
I know some people on here have a wish-list, but I have no real preference, as long as it is a nice postcard (if you need ideas, try landscapes, city views, castles, UNESCO, nature, funny/cartoon postcards..... nice postcards). It doesn't matter if you send the postcard written and stamped, or unwritten/written in an envelope. All that matters is that you send me a nice postcard!
I have learnt German and if you like, bitte schreib mir in Deutsch (ich habe fast alles vergessen). I also learnt Welsh (s'mae). I have forgotten French which I learnt in school over half a lifetime ago.
I like gardening, nature, writing letters to pen-friends, and many other things. I have a small snailmail forum. The link can be found on my blog.
Most postcards I send are posted on the same day the address has been requested, though if I request addresses late in the evening, they will be posted the following day.
Postcard Wall - I had a scanner but it is broken. I will buy a scanner but do not know when. I do not scan my outgoing cards - sometimes I will write a postcard in a café in town and post on the way home.
4th January 2011 - I have changed my username.
13th January 2014 - I have sent some postcards today, but I think I may have accidentally put tomorrow's date (14th) on.
1st April 2014 - I have set my account as inactive.... There is quite a big gap between sent/received postcards.
4th June 2014 - Fed up of not getting much post!
30th September 2014 - updated a few details.
19th September 2015. I am now mainly interested in letters but I still love this site (congratulations on the stamps). I know I haven't sent any postcards this year (or recent years, and for this I partially blame Royal Mail).
8th May 2018 - Happy 10th Postcrossing-anniversary to me! To celebrate, I have requested some addresses!
