    Ok guys ... The holidays are over and life for most has returned to normal (not here yet, another two weeks until the kids return to school!). But anyway ...

    Anyone who wants a post card from New Zealand, PM me your postal address! I will leave this offer open for another five days (til the 20th) ... and then I will get the cards and send them out, so it may be early Feb before you get them.

    And keep bumping this for others to see.

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can! Just PM your postal address to me and consider it done! Although I won't actually get or mail any postcards until the end of the month. And I am open to special requests, as well. :)

    So this is kind of exciting! So far 21 have 'signed up'!!!! I know @missy545 wanted a postcard as well and said she sent me her address but I still don't have it. So, @missy545 ... I hope you see this!!

    Again, the end date for address submissions is the 20th (for no particular reason, just thought ten days was enough for signing up. Lol).

    There is no post count requirement to receive a postcard from me. :). The only requirement is PMing your postal address to me no later than the 20th! :D

    An apology ... Would you believe it took me a few days to find postcards??! I used to get them at the post shop, but alas, no more. I finally found some hidden in a corner at a book store! How odd! And they're 'old' stock. It's like NZ is phasing out of the postcard trade. Anyway, I did get them.

    Then I had $25 and head over to the post shop (again) to get stamps. Oohhhhhhh ..... that got me less than half the stamps I need. So, I got what I could at the time. Things have been a little tight ATM, so DH has been saying, 'watch what you spend' ... Ya, ok. So, I have written out 13 of the cards (the first 13 who signed up, keeping it fair), but haven't mailed them yet! I don't leave the house often, but when I do I forget to bring them with me!!! No, it's not like in the US, I can't just put them in my mailbox for collection. It sux like that! Haha. My goal is to get them mailed tomorrow AND buy the rest of the stamps tomorrow!!!

    So, I just want to say, I haven't forgotten. I am slack. I procrastinate. I am forgetful. I suck.

    That is all.

    Uho @kittenkitty00 ... No return address on a postcard, so if it doesn't get forwarded it probably gets binned. :(
