About Ann...

Hello everyone!

I've been a wanderer most of my life, originating in Ireland, ending up in England beside the sea, and living in various countries in between. My sons are grown now and both live in France with their own families. Before I retired, I worked in IT, starting off as a programmer using equipment that now belongs in museums. Punched cards and all that!!

I love learning about other countries, traditions, history, everyday life. I can't imagine being without a book to read, almost any book. Apart from reading, I enjoy walking, gardening (now reduced to a balcony), good food, photography. Now that I have more time, I'm trying to go back to more creative things, with very mixed success!

Please don't share my address with anyone (eg Touchnote) but apart from that, as long as it's a real postcard (not folded) I will be delighted with ANY card you care to send me, especially something bright, cheerful and colourful. I'm not a stamp collector at all but I do enjoy special/unusual stamps. They are little works of art.
If you want something more to go by, here are some suggestions (in no particular order):

*Summer scenes!
*Owls, ducks, small garden birds
*Markets, market stalls, or people selling anything.
*Herbs and spices
*Alphabets, abc cards, single initial letters, names.
*Libraries / books / people reading, or writing.
*Clocks, watches, sundials. Anything measuring time. I'd especially love floral clocks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floral_clock), even if "pre-loved"
*Bars, pubs, or other drinking places (café, tavern, saloon, etc.).
*Rural scenes - woodland/pastures/farms and farming, also gardens.
*Domestic scenes - bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens.
*Citroen 2CV (deux chevaux) (I drove one of these for years!).
*Sleeping people

If anyone has a copy of https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/BY-271266 I would love it. I was so happy with the card, I put it on my office wall but sadly, it has faded badly. A replacement would make my day (but I wouldn't put it on the wall again!)

If you still need ideas, have a look through my favourites. I'm sure there are many other possibilities I don't yet know about, so why don't you surprise me! Any postcard you send will make my day.

~~ Through a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/PostcardsOfKindness , I send a postcard each week to a different care home.
~~And I send any used stamps I receive to https://www.facebook.com/groups/943082032840697
