Stamp collecting

Just a quick post before I leave for the weekend – going away for a friends wedding, CAN’T WAIT!


When my mom was little she started a stamp collection which my gran took over when mom moved out. I wouldn’t say she’s an avid collector since she only shoves the stamps into envelopes and never really get’s round to sorting them properly but still, she has had them for many years and has quite and extensive collection.


A few years back she asked all her grandchildren if they would be interested in taking over her collection. At that stage I was less than interested but I found the collection again the other day and asked her if I could have it. After a little hesitation, she said I could. So I am now a stamp collector :)

Have a great weekend!
