About Monique...

Hello you,

For Cathe: RU-5175929: I have received your card on November 22 2017!! I cannot register it any more...

My name is Monique and I'm 57 years old.
I live in Langdorp-Aarschot in Flanders Belgium, with my husband and our 7 year old dog "Mazzel". We don't have any children.

At school I had a technical training (I was the only girl among 20 boys for 3 years). That is why, in the past, I had mostly 'men's jobs'. I was volunteer in the Belgian Army when I was 18 years old; I have worked with many machines; on roofs; and so on; When I was a child I always helped my father with the renovations he did at home.
I love programs on TV like 'How its made', "Food Factory", "How do they do it" "Tree-house Masters", "DIY SOS", "House Rules", and so on. But also "Father Brown", the oldies: "Colombo" and "Murder, she wrote", "Poirot" and "CSI"... maybe it is because I want to know "How did they do that?"

Since 1999 I work for bpost Belgium, Philately & Stamps Production. We make all the stamps for Belgium (and some other countries).
I have worked at the big printing machines... (The stamps I use are my own... I have payed for them!) Our department makes also the 'personalized stamps', stamps that are made with a picture that the customer choose.
For the last 7 years I do a lot of prepress work, and I make many things for Philately & Stamps Production: posters, flyers, presentations, banners, gifts, technical drawings for new perforation, new layout's for existing products, etc ...except stamps... Maybe one day...

In our city we have 6 mills, I'm a volunteer at the windmill in Langdorp, I have a certificate for working with wind- and watermills. I am very proud of that.

I am also a volunteer in the 'Roemenië Comité Diest'. ( ) We go each year with a group of people to 'Apold' in Romania (Transylvania... Yes, where Dracula was born!) to help the people of the town with a lot of little and big jobs, especially for the children. In September it was my second time... I love it!

I have a lot of interests, I'm a Pinterest-addict: "So much interesting things... so little time..."

I like stamps.
And mills, of course!
Dogs also.
Art (in painting, furniture, crafts and so on), illusions (I like the work of Julian Beever), Andy Warhol (screen-printing), gravures...
On Pinterest i have seen the "postallove" postcards... Interesting!!
In fact, you make me happy with ANY KIND OF CARD.
I do make it easy for you don't I ?

You make me happy when you put your USERNAME on the card, so I can learn who you are before I register the card. It is so much easier to write a thank-you note.
Many thanks!

Happy postcrossing.
Greetings from Langdorp-Aarschot in Belgium,
and a big hug.
