Don’t you just love new decades?

Actually, no I don’t! And besides, what could beat the heady Keenan And Kel-filled days of the 90s? Anyway, tomorrow another ten-year block dawns and I’m so glad I can take my new love of Postcrossing into the Teenies [urgh, can’t believe I just said that].Though I’ll have probably moved on mid-June*, for now I just love them postcards!

On Monday I really did [almost] become the Perez Hilton of Postcrossing when the official team posted a Twitter link to my post, “Postcrossing V Penpals for little people!” To think of Paulo or Ana finding, reading and liking one of my posts is really quite weird – not to mention embarrassing – but it made me so happy – and got some crazy traffic! I really like the way they embrace people’s love of Postcrossing – they are great CEOs!

*Just kidding!





Yadda yadda

Hi children! I’m afraid it’s something of a slow news day today*: no new postcard arrivals since last week, let alone any more of my cack-handed scannings to post, so you’ll just have to put up with my wordy scribblings for now. I know how much you love postcard pics  so sorry about that.

Quite honestly, I’ve had no beginner’s luck with Postcrossing since I joined two months ago. I must have sent about 18 cards and only 12 have arrived – which isn’t a very good ratio for such small numbers. The three I sent eight days ago are still travelling –  and one only had to hop across to the beachless, Polanski-capturing, cuckoo clock-crazed utopia that is Switzerland. Could be something to do with the already under siege Royal Mail having their pipes clogged up with Xmas cards but still seems a bit odd. Anyway, all’s quiet on the Postcrossing front.

*The same can’t be said for family man Tiger Woods.





Oh hai!

What a long time it’s been since I did any blogging! The wonder of Postcrossing has inspired me to start yet another and I thought I could have one knocked out in seconds, although it’s taken more like half an hour to find a free email address. I’m still kind of a newbie but don’t h8 on me! I have received six cards I love very much, though I think I’ve sent about twelve – but some have never got there. I love everything about it: the stamps, the stuff people write…plus it gives the postman something to read on his round. At some point I hope to scan in all my cards but being a lazy sort, don’t hold out much hope.
Allons y!
