About Karen...


Would you believe that I received 21 postcards on 19th March 2014? Well I did! What a record!!
AND 25 today (4 April 2016) but that's due to me moving and having my mail redirected so I don't know when they actually arrived before they were sent on to me.

This is long and boring so beware!!
-Born Dundee Scotland, lived in England, Solomon Islands (Bougainville), Australia. I have attended 11 schools (one twice) in four countries as a student. I taught Maths/Science to teenagers on leave ATM. I do patchwork & quilting, cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, love to read & am basically a homebody (Due to lack of funds!!). Though am now currently studying for my Master of Education just 2 more subjects (passed the first two) and a minor thesis to go so should finish at the end of 2014, (fingers crossed) and hope to follow it with my PhD in Education.

-Am single (by choice) & have no children except those I teach, four nieces & a great niece (18th June 2011) and a great nephew born 12th December 2013. Love fun things & have a quirky sense of humour.
-I love all animals but have a soft spot for elephants, pandas (Giant and Lesser), dolphins, polar bears and manatees.
-I'm not really into religious cards or those with a message/moral. No ad cards, Birthday, holiday or offensive cards. I like postcards.

-BTW if I forget or am unable to upload the postcard I sent you either please upload it or tell me which one it is and if I have the picture I'll upload it for you.

-Also, I have been criticised for not mentioning anything personal on the postcard. Considering everything written here, I feel that I don't need to write anything personal and simply ask you to visit and see for yourself the wonderful country that I live in and I tend to tell you something about what is on the postcard.

- Sometimes my handwriting is so bad, written too much and brain can't make my writing legible, I type and stick the paper onto the postcard. Please forgive the impersonal form of response, I do try to write your name though.

- I am now teaching in country Victoria. After 3 years of only occasional (supply) cover teaching, I'm going to be a very busy bunny. It is very warm here at the moment as it's summer here. I've been here for 5 weeks and it hasn't been less than 28C (82F) with a high of 43C (110F). See what I mean? Had to give up teaching do once again I'm unemployed and cash poor. Actually I'm POOR, no money!! So unfortunately, Postcrossing is a bit beyond my finances. Postcards must stop, I'm so sad about this. I'll try to send some when my finances allow...:(

- BTW I finished my MEd, just waiting for the results (supervisor seems positive about the outcome). My supervisor was right my result is 'satisfactory with amendments' this means that I have grammatical errors and typos that I need to fix before I actually pass. All fixed and with examiners!! will graduate in October 2016.
