I had a break from Postcrossing due to ill health, now I'm getting better it's time to start again! But I do apologise for typing the message on the card, my handwriting is definitely not readable now! But I'm a sticker fiend so don't be surprised if you get some decorating the back of the card 😂
I'm now living in Stronsay which is part of the Orkney Islands. I've also lived in Kirkwall, the biggest 'city' in Orkney (pop 9300), Lochmaddy in the Western Isles of Scotland (pop 300) and Stewart Island, New Zealand's third biggest island (pop 400). I like small islands!
I've just moved house and it needs a lot of work, but the best thing about is I've got plenty of walls I can stick pins in to display my collection! Hence my avatar!
I've started gardening again and I love reading, postcrossing and doing other exchanges on other sites and having a few drinks with my friends!
I now have a furry ginger buddy called Tommy. He's 5 years old and came from another Orkney island as he didn't get on with the previous owners other cat. I call him PM as well aka Purry Monster!
The postcards I like the most are:
Cards with your town/city/country name on the front
Cards with something unique from your country
Cards with Anna Varella's drawings
Cards with Jan Van Haasteren's drawings
I'm not keen on getting cards in an envelope, much prefer a regular postcard!
But I'm not fussy; the joy of receiving a card is the best gift. I love when a card I have sent reaches the recipient as well.
The little mail carriers came to stay with me in New Zealand!
