About Me

Hello! I work in education and journalism. And I love that so many people across the world work to help young people grow up to be the best possible adults.

I live in London which means I use lots of British stamps and will send London-related postcards if that's something you like.

My main swap loves are postcards, stamps and letters. I also love getting messages about what's going on in the news/current events in your country.

STAMPS

I collect stamps. I especially love stamps that feature:

  • women

  • education

  • political events or politicians

  • elections

  • social issues

  • charities

  • seahorses

But, honestly, all stamps are beautiful and tell such cool stories about their country that I don't really care what is on them.

POSTCARDS

Things I really like on postcards:

  • governments

  • politics

  • national events

  • the colour yellow! anything yellow!

  • odd or weird or ugly cards

  • seahorses

  • historical women

Other things I like: - pop music - food (all food, but especially local cuisine) - random small museums (e.g. umbrella museum or butter museum)

MESSAGES/LETTERS

But my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE is if you can WRITE A LITTLE ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS IN THE NEWS in your country: could be a big election, an environmental issue, or a small funny thing you saw recently. I really love the news.

If you're not sure about the news, other things I like to hear about:

  • The best phone call you ever received

  • If you could witness any event from the past, which would you like to see?

  • How do you think future generations will view us?

  • If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be?

  • What is a tradition that tells a lot about your country?

  • What custom in your country brings you the most joy?

**But really, I like anything, so don't feel you need to do these things or send extras for hearts **

Favorite Music

Greenday, Barenaked Ladies and...country music!

Favorite Movies

Harold and Maude, When Harry Met Sally, High Fidelity and all musicals!

Favorite Books

I don't really read fiction but I read LOTS of magazines and non-fiction - about stamps, science, life, decorating, art, music, film...anything that is real life!

Dislikes

Not a lover of cute animals. I like ugly and weird animals. You know, creepy ones that people won't go near or have never heard of.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard and the explanation behind the image you chose and also the amazing stamps that you used. I love the black and white image that is in a vintage style. I cannot imagine paying that much for a watch! The stamps were very interesting and even a bit sinister. I like Punch and Judy puppets but they always seemed a bit violent 😂. The stamps reminded me of à throwback 1970s UK TV commercial played at the end of night in a show called “Life on Mars”. Thanks again.

Comment: Thanks for the PC's and letter, lovely choice of cards, it's hard to know what to do with the ones you don't want. This sort of swap is great for it. I lived in London (Tooting) for 15 years and loved being able to jump on the tube and get around so easily. Live music was my drug, not so easy now I live in the sticks. Happy swapping, catch you soon. Cathy 😺 (And thank you for the Star Wars stamp)

Comment: Thank you for the great selection of cards. I thoroughly enjoyed your commentary on each of them. I visited the Trinity Parish Church last year when I was in St Augustine. It's in the heart of the old part of town & is a peaceful respire from the hordes of tourists visiting the oldest city in the US. I'd never seen a double maxi card before. I took your tip and listened to the melody of the lovely Song Thrush. What an amazing repertoire! Thanks for sharing the extra imagery from the Financial Times. Some great fodder for collages there! You can be sure I will put them to good use. All together, a delightful swap!
