I am the mother of identical twin daughters who are both married and are teachers on the Island as is one son-in-law. I have four little grandchildren. I am 64 years old and retired.
I love reading, classical music, art,old buildings, ornate architecture, waterfalls, bridges, unusual postboxes, lighthouses, space travel and I am a serious fan of anything to do with Harry Potter and have most of the Lego minifigures for the series. I collect mint stamps and old or unusual stamp booklets, especially commemorative ones. I have all the mint Postcrossing stamps issued so far, but looking forward to hopefully getting the new ones due out in 2019 onwards from any other countries who are going to issue them or replace existing ones. Thank you to everyone who has kindly helped me with my collection and I hope you enjoyed the stamps from here. To amuse my grandchildren we have been collecting Lego/Playmobil postmen/woman/postboxes and mail planes. This links up with my cards. Not easy to find living on a small Island but granny can achieve miracles it seems.....if only! 👵🏻
Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands with Jersey the biggest but all the other smaller Islands come under our Bailiwick. We are just a Crown Dependency of the UK and so have our own Government. We have our own flag. We are not part of the EU so have our own currency and Jersey has theirs.
We do have three Postcrossing stamps and matching cards.
Could you please if possible put the date you sent the card as I like to know how long it takes to reach me.
"I would appreciate a few words about yourself or the wonderful country you live in and not just the postcrossing ID and no information as the cards I love, but knowing about the people and countries from around the world I love more" I cannot travel the world as I am disabled from birth.
P.S No untasteful cards-Well I am 64!
Also NO folded notelets as I joined to get Postcards.
Please do not ask for a postcard, direct on liking one I have sent or on the card you send to me. I do realise why you want one from a rare place like Guernsey but I felt like the whole world was asking! Also many direct ones never sent me a card back and my postage costs were also soaring into space......🚀 Thank you.
PLEASE NOTE:- Our cards are a standard size here and not a small 10cm x 15cm as some insist on.
A la Perchôine-Goodbye or Until we meet again, in Guernsey Patois.
