Valentine's Postcard Exchange

 These are the postcards I received. aren't they lovely?
It was such good fun choosing and sending out my cards and then waiting... I hate waiting ...

Some of them came from so far away and now they are pinned to my wall until December 31st.

What? you don't do that? oh I love postcards and I have kept every one I have ever received since I was a small child. My Granny used to send me a postcard every time she went anywhere. She went to America for three months to visit her brothers and sisters who emigrated there in the 1920s and she sent me more than 50 cards which were destroyed during an altercation in a previous life.
I kept my postcards well hidden after that. Mr M doesn't share my love of postcards but he has been known to carefully put away any new additions in the file drawers allocated to them.

I always pin them to the wall just behind the front door - after I have read them and showed them to Mr M of course - and there they stay until the end of the year when they will be transferred into categories in the drawer

Thank you to everyone who has sent me postcards in the Valentine's Postcard exchange

I will come back and put a picture of all my received postcards when all six have arrived. In the mean time I will just say thank you to everyone for taking part and giving me so much fun. I love receiving postcards. One of the things my children will have to do when I am gone is decide what the heck to do with my 60 year old collection of postcards - some of them much older than that too.

Definitely NMP (not my problemo)
