Send Shutdown Mail

Thank you to everyone who has sent me mail at this strange time of shutdown and quarantine. I have be trying to send out more mail to make people smile and you’ve certainly done that for me.
here are some of the postcrossing cards I have received recently from UK Germany, Costa Rica, Indonesia and Finland. I am sure I have missed photographing some as I’ve been sending my own.
Do carry on sending if you can and bring a smile to some ones face ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovely Mail

I have received a little bit extra from my postcrossings this week. Nadia from Russia sent me these lovely stamps along with her card and also obviously I got the stamps on the envelope. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then I got this lovely first day cover from Sutan in Indonesia along with her card and an information leaflet telling me about the stamp as well.

Very happy ๐Ÿ™‚

New Year Postcrossings

I’m excited to start my Postcrossings for 2020. I don’t know who I’m going to meet or what countries I’m going to send to or receive from. I’ve been a member of this project for Nine years and have sent 637 postcards around the planet and I’ve also received 637 postcards. That is totally spectacular, who’d have thought it possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

My first postcards for this new year are to

Chen in Taiwan, Irina in Russia,

Cynthia in China,ย  Melanie in Germany

Mazli in Malaysia and Alena in Slovakia

Six different countries straight away, a very good start!
