Pile Of Postcards: Update

It's a crisp, bright Thursday morning here, and our postman has just arrived unusually early. So I'm taking that as a sign that it's time to get going on pulling together all the addresses and making up the lists for the Pile Of Postcards Valentine Exchange


I have 51 names - even more than the last time! - and that means we have eight groups of six and enough for a ninth if I shuffle myself into more than one group OR if another couple of you get in touch. So, if you are on the fence, come and join us! We've got a great international group - you never know where your postcards might appear from. I'm going to work on the lists tonight...

...and I'll be sending them out next week. It'll be quiet here, I think, for the next few days. With The (Not So) Small One away, her Dad and I have plans. Maybe a road trip? It'll be our first, just the two of us, in twenty years. We don't know where we're going, we think we'll just drive. See you soon.

have a fabulous time - when I read 'just drive' my heart fluttered and I realised that a nomadic, unplanned trip is what I need

I've been on the fence about the postcards this go round. I know my limitations and just need to pass this time. I know I'll regret that!! Knowing you, you'll have postcards from just about anywhere on your road trip! Have fun and be a little naughty!

Jo said...

This is such a good idea and I can't wait to see everyone sharing their postcards.

Julie Kirk said...

We've done that before - just driven - there's always *somewhere* to go! Do enjoy. x

How fabulous; I love it when we just get in the car and take it as it comes ... Enjoy x

Ruth said...

You've got to love a road trip, destination known or otherwise. Enjoy!

Melissa said...

Just driving & not having it all planned out is one of our favorite ways to travel! Have FUN!

Karen said...

Have fun! It sounds like a great plan.

Maggie said...

Like Barbara I am on the fence. Not such about reaching out like that and know I will regret it. We had our first trip on our own away in 20 years last September. It did feel strange but it was refreshing. enjoy!

How exciting! I am on tenterhooks for the postcard thingy. Mr M and I love doing the road-trip anywhere. I once made some little cards that had left and right written on them. we carried them in a little pouch and he would ask "which way?" I would put my fingers into the pouch and pull out a card and that's the way we would go. When you live on an island you can't get lost.

Have a wonderful 'you two' time this weekend.....it's Australia Day over here, so celebrations galore. Our road blocked off, & fireworks etc. Should be fun in the sun!!!

Jennifer Shaw said...

Have a great trip! Very exciting! So looking forward to the postcard list coming out. :)

Maria Ontiveros said...

I've got my post cards all ready to go!

alexa said...

That sounds just the thing, Sian, and this comes with best wishes for your time away. So hard to get when you're a parent! We'll all be still here and glad to see you when you are able to post again :).

Rachel B said...

Ooh, if there is still time, can you add me to the list please? :)

Shirley said...

This sounds neat! I used to do postcard exchanges at Postcrossing, but haven't done it in a few years. If you're still looking for some people, I'm up for participating! Let me know!

Louise said...

i hope you took that road trip and you enjoyed yourselves. It must have seemed strange it just being the two of you x x

Beverly said...

Yay for a two of you trip!!!

Gail said...

A road trip for just the two of you sounds perfect! Sorry the timing didn't work out for me joining the postcard exchange this time.

Sandie said...

Have a wonderful road trip Sian. It will probably seem strange without the children, but I love it when it is just the 2 of us.

Sara Kiiru said...

I'd love to join if it's not too late, but if you've already got too many I'll wait for the next round. :-)
