you see it all started with a couple of bags of stamps & 2 days where i was so sick all i could do was..er..sort stamps (& eat everything we had in the fridge).
so now the lounge room has transformed into a sorting room – there are labels on the dishes (thank god i have so many glass apple bowls! phew!) that read ‘czechoslovenko‘ & ‘polska‘ (deutsche got so full that it had to upgrade to the apple serving bowl).
this person has collected stamps from around 40 countries & what i’m really enjoying is discovering the sources of national pride – who are the portraits of? what is the machinery? (could it be that germany is particularly proud of a heat-sealing machine, or is it a photocopier?)
i’m starting to think it would be the best job in the world to be on the Australia Post Stamp Committee, is there such a thing?
hope you have a good weekend!
