I live in the picturesque small town of Wooler in north Northumberland which is a popular place to being exploring the local countryside of the Cheviot Hills. It is not far from the Scottish Borders. I recently worked as a nurse manager in a nursing home but am now semi retired. I have an elderly chihuahua the last of my many pets! 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 each year. I have been to Sydney, Perth, Alice Springs and Cairns plus many more smaller places over the last 16 years. I am Granny to Felicity (4) and her big sister Faith (23).
Northumberland is a beautiful county in the North of England. Plenty of walks here and the Northumberland and Scottish coastline is 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.
