Happy New Year 2012! Bonne Année 2012! As some of you know, we visited Guernsey last November. It was a great trip and we decided to send ourselves the souvenir calendar postcard above. I love calendar postcards but I have trouble finding them here. Guernsey has its own postal service for the delight of locals, stamp collectors and tourists alike. The Bailiwick has a very simple pricing system for postcards–local, UK, and Everywhere Else. All of the cards I sent out had the Everywhere Else stamp you see here in honor of the book The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. The book deals with Guernsey during the WWII German occupation. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to get back to Guernsey for a long weekend this year–after I’ve read the book! I also want to finish the Cancale-St Malo Half-Marathon in June. For the rest, I’m still too tired to think straight this morning. Perhaps my main resolution this year should be to get more sleep!
