I remember how excited I used to get when my friends sent me one from the exotic locations they were at, at the time or spending hours to choose the right one to send to them from wherever my family was, driving my parents mad with indecisiveness. The messages were always the same cliche; it's great here, or it's too warm, and usually, you'd draw the sun with the temperature in it.
That was long before the internet and smartphones took over, though, and sending cards seems like a long-forgotten tradition these days. I mean, my eight-year-old niece just sent me a WhatsApp to tell me how much she was enjoying her vacation. A #$%!@ WhatsApp! Where's the fun in that?
So, I've decided to do things completely different this year. Instead of apping a pic of us drinking cocktails on the beach, I'm going to send postcards! Yay? YAY!!
As you may or may not know, my lover-boy and I are leaving for Fuerteventura in three weeks, on the 28th. If you want to be included in the mailing list, please leave your address details in the comments or send me a pm. All comments are screened, and no one else will be able to see the info but me.
I will only use the details you provide to send you a card from Fuerteventura and maybe London (going there end of October) and X-mas time with a small treat, if you want. If not, I'll delete the info as soon as the card is sent from Fuerteventura.
Oh, and I promise to keep the cards clean. :)
