Today is also yesterday’s update because that never happened…so received yesterday:
A beautiful moonlit mountain view from Russia, and a Valentine’s postcard perfectly timed to arrive on Valentine’s Day! Reading beyond the fun illustration the butchered hearts idea is actually a bit creepy…
A view of Winnats Pass (Peak District) at sunrise, to Russia in reply. Last time I was here there was a snow storm and we all slipped our way to the bottom of the pass in a desperate attempt to escape the hills…I’d like to go back in better weather sometime!
It’s a view of the Virgin of Vallivana, a Postcard United card from Italy. I’m several cards in the positive on both postcard sending sites currently…when does the system figure out if I’m not keeping up?! Intriguingly, it appears to have a 1980 Vatican post stamp but the sender lives in northern Italy and there’s no postmark, so I’m not sure if this card went through the Vatican or not… I think the card might be fairly old too. It did take 54 days to reach me, maybe it is from the past!
A letter to a penfriend in Australia, I’m slowly working down the stack of overdue replies…
And the stamps from the last couple of days:
