About Margaret...

Firstly, I must apologise for how long it is taking to register postcards.
Australia Post (in its wisdom) are now only delivering mail to households every alternate day. I am furious about this and do not agree with the decision or the reason for it. Anyway, enough ranting.

Wow, I have hit 1,800 postcards. Imagine so many strangers from around the world (and Australia) are now friends because of a little piece of cardboard, beautiful stamps and some lovely words. Each milestone is reached with a smile. Early on it seemed to take soooo long for just one postcard to arrive. What fun I am having travelling the world through my letter box.

I love receiving any kind of card. Do not panic when you see how many cards I have received. The written words make every card different and special. My 'favs' are many but just ones that grab me on the day and do not mean exclusive wants. I just love getting mail.

A little about myself. I am married with one grown-up daughter. I am passionate about cricket, Aussie Rules football (go Sydney Swans), music (any kind), lighthouses, native animals, birds, water and nature.
I retired from full-time work at the end of April 2018 and am now doing some office work 2 mornings a week as well as volunteering at an early childhood centre 1 morning a week. I am really enjoying retirement but I did not know I would be so busy.

Of course I still have time to look for interesting postcards, knitting and reading (mainly crime fiction and biographies). I have been collecting children's books for several years and, as my daughter works with pre-school children, I have a good excuse to buy more. I have a great laugh. Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I wish the joy and love shown at this time could last all year.

Just remembered: Please date your card as I like to keep track of how long (or short) a time your message takes to reach me. Also, if it does not add to your costs, please send your card in an envelope. Australia Post uses a dark, large postmark which covers up your words (as I said earlier they are as important as the card).

Just heard the postman's bike. Have to go and check my letter box.
