About Me

Fridaynight, saturday and sunday: days to be creative and get my postcards and envelopes to the mailbox, so my collegues can empty them on sunday evening. Since 1 January 2014 they don't do that anymore, monday is the first occasion. So, my date of sending shown at the swap doesn't have to be the real one....... I mark it as sent when the swap is finished, otherwise I'll forget it ;-)

I live near Rotterdam with my husband. Our daughter waved us goodbye and moved out to her own place in Zwolle, 2 hours driving by car (in the Netherlands it is almost "the other side of the country" .......) Our son found a small room in Rotterdam, near to the city center. Just 25 minutes driving by bike....

In June 2015 we adopted a red/white cat of 13 years old from a shelter. We let him go 5 years later. Our very black cat Harry (found on the internet) passed away 3rd October 2017. He was only 10 years old.

I deliver mail 4 days a week, of course by bike!


Together with my daughter I like to drink tea: she likes green tea, I like rooibos. Herbal and black tea are not our favourites, others are more than welcome, surprise us! After drinking I collect the bags for a very dear friend (she has a collection of > 30.000 bags), the labels I send to a Postcrossing/Facebook friend in Belarus. Tea can make a lot of people happy!

What I like

  • everything about Scandinavia, Iceland, London, Berlin (but not too touristic)
  • black & white postcards (and also with a little bit of colour)
  • clear stamps
  • rub-ons
  • tea for me (Tazo wild sweet orange, Bercoff Klember Premium Tea and Higher Living very berry are delicious)
  • tea for my daughter (Nordqvist Nippon Green, Basilur White Magic, Stash green tea with fruit, Pukka Sweet Vanilla Green, any brand of green tea with grapefruit))
  • tea for both of us (Ukrainian Lovare)
  • everything about mail (because of my job)
  • warm colours
  • handmade (surprise me)
  • washi tape
  • chocolate (Finnish/Icelandic with liquorice...mmmm....)
  • showergel/-scrub
  • liquorice
  • I cherish my garden more and more
  • recycling package material
  • seal wax and stamps. Create a single one and send it to me!
  • Gotochi postcards especially mailboxes, I love them!
  • B. Kliban cats

What I dislike

  • religious items, angels
  • grey and beige (it makes me sad)
  • postcards with horses, or with animals with funny hats, glasses, ....
  • very romantic things likes roses and pink
  • herbal and black tea (also with fruit like strawberry and forest fruit), with rice, camomile. I tried chai, but I really don't like it
  • I have a big box filled with sticky notes and stickers: I love them but I don't want more of them
