Incoming Mail Week #8

The blog is and will be rather quiet this spring due to my thesis writing. This week I had a week long winter vacation but I spent most of that time battling with German, my thesis or a cold.. So not that much time to write or read blogs (I have over 100 unread blog posts in Bloglovin, OOPS.....). Not that many postcards will be arriving during the next week as Postcrossing is stupid and puts my address to the address pool more often than needed.. I have 12 (!!!!!) extra postcards that I've received and I'd rather not get any extras, just one card for every card I've sent and has been registered..

Me and Kate agreed to swap books now and then as our taste in books is similar :)
I'm yet to send her "Juliet Immortal" (LOVED the book!) which I promised her but I still received the second (and last) book of "Little Blue Envelope" series :) I really wanted to like the first book but it was rather predictable and the ending was rushed.. We'll see what the second book is like..

Outgoing Mail Weel #7

Postcrossing

I got tired of being disappointed when I got two addresses to the same country so instead I changed my options to "" so my addresses are to Germany and Russian. It takes ages for the Russian cards to arrive but at least I don't have to spend so much money to Postcrossing - new addresses from Russian cards every 2-4 weeks while German cards arrive within a week and I get a new address every 2-4 days :)
