I live in the picturesque small town of Wooler in north Northumberland which is a popular place to begin exploring the local countryside including the Cheviot Hills. It is not far from the Scottish Borders. Up until recently i worked as a nurse manager in a nursing home but am now semi retired. I enjoy collecting vintage 1900s postcards. I have albums of all postcards I have ever received.
My son lives in Adelaide, South Australia and I love visiting though now on hold though. I have been to Sydney, Perth, Alice Springs and Cairns plus many more smaller places over the last 20 years. I am Granny to Felicity (6) and her big sister Faith (25). I'm a keen gardener!.
Northumberland is a beautiful county in the North of England. Plenty of walks here and the Northumberland and Scottish coastlines are 20 minutes away. We are near beautiful castles, one being Alnwick which was used in the Harry Potter films. Others are Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh. Newcastle upon Tyne is the nearest city, 40 miles away and is a vibrant, multi-cultural big city.
I would like any sort of postcard, especially vintage or black and white ones. I LOVE the Moomins and oriental designs, especially dragons, but all types of cards are welcome. Please date your cards.
