About Helen...

Hello my Postcrossing friends! My name is Helen, I'm 63 years young, a widow (since Dec 2022), and retired from a long career in marketing, most recently running an agency with my late husband. At home with me is my adult daughter, and I have an adult son who lives close by. We also have a very demanding cat called Mocha who we rescued from an animal shelter in March 2024 and who has not only taken over our lives, but is providing the heartbeat that was missing from our home ❤️

I love books and bookshops, cooking, my garden, nature and being outside, and being with my family and friends - especially if there's a glass or two of wine involved! 😉 My guilty pleasure is binge-watching TV series and films - Frasier is the best sitcom evert made. Tom Hanks is my favourite actor of all time, I could watch him forever.

For me, Postcrossing is all about making connections so send me any card you like - I don't mind! You know that card you've had for ages that doesn't quite match anyone's profile? Send it to me! 😊 Rude cards, quirky cards, boring cards, tourist cards, ad cards, homemade cards - I'll take them!

In these difficult times, with so much death, destruction and hatred around the world, I believe it is up to ordinary individuals like us to reach out the hand of friendship and peace. Here - take mine, I can't wait to meet you! 💕

Helen xx
