About Me

My grandpa passed away on Jan 11 at the age of 93. He was in a retirement home for almost a year. My mum and my aunt visited him daily since the beginning of December as he wasn't doing well. They also spent several hours on Jan 11 with him so he wasn't alone. As I live 450 km away from them I couldn't visit him that often but was there on Christmas.

Working full-time and doing distance learning for my Master's degree, so not much time for swapping these days. This is why I mainly do postcard swaps now as you don't need so much time for these. My last test was on Nov 15 - at least I hope it was the last. So now I need a theme for my Master's thesis and plan to begin with it in February 2020.

CPG: January Wishes -- Just received your package of postage stamps for my January wishes. I always know that when I receive a fat package from you there has to be something good inside and I always love the stamps you send. The lighthouse stamps are the best. Didn't know there were so many lighthouses on postage stamps. Thanks
