About Ann...

Hello world!

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 love learning about people. 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, currently crochet. Sometimes I finish a project!

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. If you want something more to go by, here are some suggestions (in no particular order):

*UNESCO World Heritage Sites or cultural heritage.
*Markets, market stalls, or people selling anything.
*Herbs and spices
*Alphabets, abc cards, single initial letters, names.
*People in processions, parades, marches, and traditional festivals.
*Libraries / books / people reading, or writing.
*Clocks, watches, sundials. Anything measuring time.
*Bars, pubs, or other drinking places (café, tavern, saloon, etc.).
*Postcrossing meet-up cards signed by anyone/everyone there.
*Rural scenes - woodland/pastures/farms and farming.
*Domestic scenes - bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens.
*Art/illustration in general (but nothing too abstract)
*Citroen 2CV (deux chevaux)(I drove one of these for years!).
*Sleeping people

Also, for ANOTHER new project, I'd love wolves, cats, owls and dangerous animals!

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.

I prefer cards to be stamped and written with a few words about the card, or yourself, or where you live, or even some local news. I'm always interested if you can recommend a novel set in your own country.

~~During the coronavirus pandemic, people in care homes here had few visitors and felt more isolated and vulnerable than many. Through a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/PostcardsOfKindness , I send a postcard each week to a different care home. I'm continuing even though they now have visitors again.
