About Robyn...

(Dear Postcrossers, please do not ask me to do direct swaps).

The bird in my profile picture is a Lord Howe Island Woodhen. They are cute little flightless birds, which used to be the most endangered species of bird in the world. Their numbers got as low as about 20. Now there are more than 1100 of them. They only live on Australia's Lord Howe Island.

Hi everybody! My name is Robyn. I am 52. I have a wonderful husband named Graeme, and we live in a small town in rural Australia. We work together as pastors of a Christian church. However, I am not particularly interested in pictures of Church buildings.

We have a charming cat called Missy.

In 2024, for fun I’d like to have a colour year.
If you send a postcard to me in January or February, if possible, can you please send me a yellow 🟨 postcard.
In March-April Orange 🟧
In May-June Red 🟥
In July-August Purple 🟪
In September-October Blue 🟦
In November-December Green. 🟩

I am fascinated with the world, and we love to travel whenever we get the opportunity. I love the excitement of receiving postcards from around the world, and I always enjoy reading the cards I receive.

I am a stamp collector, although I never remove stamps from the postcards I receive.

I like postcards without envelopes; I am not interested in folded greeting cards. And please write a message on your card.

I don't mind if your postcard comes from where you live or elsewhere. Sometimes it's fun to get a postcard from some random other place.

Here are some hints if you are not sure what postcard to send me:

I love the ocean and all its creatures 🐬
Cats 🐈
Chickens 🐓 (known as chooks in rural Australia)
Other animals
Lawn bowls!
Nature and beautiful scenery
Tourist cards

I am happy to receive Christmas postcards at Christmas, and Easter postcards at Easter (not folded greeting cards).

I would prefer not to receive advertising/freebie or homemade postcards. I am also not so keen on meetup postcards, or World Postcard Day cards - sorry!
PLEASE NO harry potter, halloween. I don't like them.

My mother (Merrilyn) is also a Postcrosser. Every two weeks we get together and look at each other's received postcards.

I sometimes get requests to register postcards before I have received them, but I only register them once I have got them. Then I do it at my first opportunity.

Thank you for taking the time to read this,
