14 August 2018 - Sadly I have had no mail since the 20th of June. I am "patiently" waiting for SAPO to get their act together and start sorting mail and getting mail sent out.
20 July 2018 - The postal strike is over and according to SAPO it will take "approximately 20 days" to get the backlog of mail sorted out. Hopefully my post box will start to get some mail soon.
5 July 2018 - Mail has been so slow here. I am waiting for 143 mail pieces and now our wonderful postal service has decided to go on strike. I am definitely not happy!
20 March 2017 - I am so heartbroken. My one fur baby, Snoopy died yesterday morning after he was poisoned. :(
Please note - I DO NOT celebrate Halloween!!
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:
SWAPS - I live in South Africa and swaps from here do take a bit longer than 30 days to get to other swappers in other countries. I have had an occasion where I posted a letter on the 21st of November 2015 and my swap partner only received it on the 30th of December 2015. There was a tracking number. So, it can take 39 days for a letter to get to someone.
RATINGS BY ME - If I haven't rated you it is because I haven't received the swap yet. I always rate when I received the swap! If it was an email swap that you have sent - the reason I haven't rated - because I haven't logged onto my email yet and haven't read the email yet!
RATING ME - Before you give me a 1 rating for not having received a swap from me, PLEASE send me a private message to let me know that you haven't received the swap. I am sure that you would also like to be informed that a swap did not arrive instead of receiving a 1 with no communication. I NEVER HAVE and NEVER WILL flake on a swap!! .

I like receiving any type of postcard as long as it isn't anything discusting and rude. I don't mind if the postcard are sent in an envelope or stamped and written on - whatever the swap requires.
I always send my swaps out. If you haven't received my swap to you, please let me know before rating me. I always go out of my way to make sure that my swaps are sent out in time - if for any reason I cannot sent it out in time, I will let you know - but I WILL send the swap requirements.
When sending me something in a swap - please DO NOT send me anything with naked people on. I am really not interested in it. You can keep that for others.
I will rate as soon as I have received your swap. If I haven't rated yet, I haven't received it yet!
