It's always a happy day for me when I receive a postcard from my own country. I know how much sending a postcard is in Canada, and it is a lot more than it costs me to send a postcard here. In Canada, there is no special rate for an international postcard, it costs the same as a letter, which is a lot if you ask my family!
However, Irene chose to join Postcrossing and sent me a great card for my Tea related collection AND was nice and chatty on the back so I'm very happy.
Irene wrote, "Hello, My name is Irene and I am now retired. I worked in libraries, in television, on newspapers, in bookstores and with a literary festival. Everything to do with language and writing and reading.
My favourite movie is an oldie-black and white-Laura starring Gene Tierney. I also enjoy watching Fred Astaire films. Happy Postcrossing."
I love this cool stamp celebrating the year of the monkey. I haven't seen it before. My family usually emails me, so I don't get a lot of "mail" from them!
Thank you Irene!
