471

I ve been on a set of nights and will be back blogging tomorrow.
Last week was a particularly difficult week emotionally
But its choir tonight and I'm catching up with The Walking Dead with a scotch egg supper later so I'm not thinking of what will or could be in my future

Again the final push for the competition continues
I thought  initially that I would receive , say 80 postcards
The total entered at the moment is 471!!
Here are the latest

  1. I have just posted mine ( first class) , the stamp....not the postcard :-)

  2. I hope, like the sloth (an usually pretty depiction or a rather non-pretty animal) you are continuing to 'hang in there' dear John.
    Keep coming back here even when the postcards don't!

    Warm hugs - Mary

  5. The first scotch egg card looks really 3D. It looks like a real scotch egg sat on a card. Enjoy your scotch egg supper after choir practise.

  6. Love seeing all of the postcards. 471, Amazing! Hope your scotch egg was delish.

  7. John I know you were intending to do return postcards but 471! That's a huge burden of your time and will cost a small fortune. Don't worry about a return one for me, putting more stress on you wasn't the point of this.

    3. No need to be sorry. Good lord. That's a huge amount of mail $ wise. Just enjoy them. I think in can speak for the majority that we were just delighted to be able to brighten your day. You've brightened mine for years now.

  8. I am so glad you thought of this idea. It's been fun for all your readers and must certainly have cheered you up enormously. I'd love to be a fly on the wall to overhear what he says when the postman gets home and has his first cuppa after a long day's work!

  9. Holy cow! 471 cards! That's amazing. I'm glad so many people have turned out to show you how important you are in their (our) lives. :)

    I love that card of the kissing Navy men! Definitely my fave of this batch. The Osaka ones are nice, too.

  10. You thought you’d receive only 80? Fat chance. If I did it, I’d receive 4! You are so popular!

    Please don’t apologise for not replying to all the cards, John - I had a feeling you would receive tons, and felt a tad concerned about the expense of replying to all - it would have run into the £100s !!!! I’mjust thrilled to have seen mine got there and was photographed... Look after yourself. I do hope your future will soon be more settled. xxxx

  28. Elephant's Child is right - it isn't any wonder you've received so many with more to come yet. Sure hoping this helps cheer you up a bit, John. ♥♥♥
